Masada has quickly become one of John Zorn's most popular and adventurous musical projects. These special arrangements for small ensembles of strings, keyboards and clarinets, shed new light on his book of inspiring compositions expanding the Jewish tradition. Bar Kokhba presents over two hours of dark, passionate and evocative Jewish music, featuring some of New York City's finest musicians.

This double-CD is the long-awaited first American release of Zorn's Masada material, featuring startling new chamber arrangements of music from the six Masada albums on Avant (Japan).
