Zorn, John - Filmworks VIII

SKU TZ 7318
''Zorn's Masada music has never sounded as beautiful or as evocative as in this recording originally created for Port Of Last Resort -- a film documentary about the Jewish refugees who escaped Nazi Germany by resettling to Shanghai. Augmenting the exciting Masada String Trio with the sensual pipa of Min Xiao-Fen, the versatile guitar of Marc Ribot and the ivory touch of Anthony Coleman's piano stylings, this music blends Jewish and Chinesethemes in a way both touching and fresh. Also included is an exoticall-percussion score for Ela Troyano's quirky gay porno film Latin Boys Go to Hell, featuring the bizarre sonorities and driving rhythms of Cyro Baptista and Kenny Wollesen.''
