On The Circle Maker, Zorn has again exquisitely arranged his popular and adventurous Masada project for string trio and chamber ensemble. The first disc of this outstanding 2CD set, Issachar, features the Masada String Trio: Mark Feldman (violin), Erik Friedlander (cello) and Greg Cohen (bass). The passionate and evocative performances of these three virtuoso musicians shed new light on Zorn's book of inspiring compositions expanding the Jewish tradition. Disc two, Zevulun, features the Bar Kokhba Sextet: Cohen, Feldman and Friedlander, joined by the gifted Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista, guitar wizard Marc Ribot and jazz great Joey Baron on drums. This delightful set is a joyous and extraordinary celebration of Jewish music,The Circle Maker and Bar Kokhba are destined to become two of the most important releases of the late 20th century.
