The third installment in this Tenth Year celebration is the most exciting yet. Fourteen tunes from Zorn’s legendary Masada songbook that have never been heard before. Performed and arranged by an incredible lineup of musicians, the music here touches upon hard rock, world beat, klezmer and jazz, often all in the same arrangement! Highlights include a lyrical ballad by Wadada Leo Smith, two explosive rock tracks by the powerful Japanese duo the Ruins and Mike Patton’s Fantomas, and a gorgeous solo performance by Ukrainian bandura virtuoso Julian Kytasty.
