news & reviews

  • about this album

    A showcase for Zorn the composer, this album features three separate pieces, in which unified inspiration and themes are applied to his schizophrenic, postmodern approach to create pieces that are internally unified and yet feel like a glimpse into Zorn’s stream-of-consciousness. The album features performances from an all-star cast, including Bill Frisell, Albert Collins, and Kronos Quartet.
