Zorn, John - Filmworks XV: The Protocols of Zion CD

SKU TZ7345
Working fast and loose with a small unit of close friends, Zorn has created a sensitive and intimate score for a dynamic new documentary film on a controversial subject: the rise of anti semitism after 9/11. Featuring hypnotic grooves and ominous moods, there is an unsettling feeling throughout this score that is in part due to the subject matter, but heightened by Zorns unique keyboard stylings. Here for the first time are extended improvisations, spontaneous compositions and thoughtful ramblings by one of the worlds maverick composers. In the tradition of composers at the piano recordings (Mingus, Bacharach, Ives), this CD is a fascinating peek into the inner ear of Zorn the composer. One can literally hear him thinking, developing ideas aloud, aided by the most supportive possible environment in the person of Cyro Baptista, Zorns longest musical associatethey have been working together consistently since 1981and Shanir Blumenkranz, the young bass player from Satlah, Rashanim and Pharaohs Daughter. A must for any Zorn fan, this is one of Zorns most interesting, enjoyable and personal recordings. [Tzadik]
