  • The first album from Zorn’s trailblazing collective, the self-titled Naked City features a rollicking synthesis of jazz, free-jazz, punk, hardcore, and collage techniques, often jumping between multiple styles at a rapid pace within one song. Rolling Stone suggests that listeners of this postmodern whirlwind think of Zorn as a “rapid-fire radio scanner,” and anticipate “hanging on for dear life whenever he hits the button.”

  • A tribute of sorts to Ornette Coleman, Spy v. Spy explores pieces from the extensive Coleman catalog using Zorn's hardcore-punk inspired approach to group improvisation; the result is a frenetic, high-energy whirlwind of free jazz. In the words of the New York Times, when it comes to Coleman, Zorn “has clearly found a soul-mate.”

  • 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. Featuring an all-star cast, including Bill Frisell, Albert Collins, and Kronos Quartet.
