A virtuoso guitarist best known as a member of Junk Genius and the San Francisco jazz/funk supergroup T.J. Kirk, John Schott is joined by tenor John Horton Murray (The Metropolitan Opera), bassist Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle) and drummer Kenny Wollesen (New Klezmer Trio, Masada, Tom Waits) on his debut as a leader.

Recalling the exotic precision of Schoenberg's chamber masterpiece Pierrot Lunaire, this ambitious song cyle creatively mixes contemporary classical compositional techniques with improvisation, using Hebrew, Yiddish and German texts by Franz Kafka, Karl Kraus and Jacob Glatshteyn.
