GOING TO GRACELAND

Rhymin’ Paul Simon gets the all-hands-on-deck treatment at The Music of Paul Simon, the latest iteration of past Knitting Factory and present City Winery impresario Michael Dorf’s annual benefit for music-education nonprofits. With afrobeat purveyors Antibalas as house band, you can bet that at least a handful of these semi-household names will address Graceland’s music (if not the controversy surrounding its creation). Allen Toussaint, Angelique Kidjo, and Bettye LaVette will undoubtedly ring the rafters, while solid citizens such as Joe Henry, John Doe, and Madeleine Peyroux can do no harm with the material at hand. But it’s wild cards like former Butthole Surfer Gibby Haynes and Phish’s Mike Gordon who should provide the big surprises at this high-quality nod to a tunesmith worthy of tribute.
