Zorn, John - Six Litanies for Hellogabalus CD

SKU TZ7361
"The infamous Moonchild/Astronome Trio of Patton, Dunn and Baron returns to the studio this time aided by the searing organ of Jamie Saft, the complex electronics of Ikue Mori and a small female chorus to realize Zorn’s latest project Six Litanies for Heliogabalus. Inspired by the decadent excesses of the Roman emperor/child-god who made Caligula and Nero look like reasonable human beings—smothering his dinner guests to death in a rain of perfumed rose petals—these six compositions (including an outrageous new piece for solo voice) explode with color, imagery and intensity. A startling blend of Metal, Contemporary Classical, Jazz and Mediaeval Music, this is one of Zorn's most extreme and original creations. John Zorn: Alto Sax, Composer, Joey Baron: Drums, Trevor Dunn: Bass, Ikue Mori: Electronics, Mike Patton: Voice, Jamie Saft: Organ, Martha Cluver: Voice, Abby Fischer: Voice, Kirsten Soller: Voice
