John Zorn: The Painted Bird [#8342]
The fourth CD in a 12-month period by Zorn’s most powerful new ensemble presents nine genre-busting compositions mixing jazz, metal, classical, world music and more. This time their trademark sound is augmented by the ringing tones of Kenny Wollesen’s vibraphone to create their wildest, most insane CD to date. Juxtaposing complex atonal lines, driving vamps, heavy metal riffs, improvisational madness, shredding solos and moments of profound lyricism, The Painted Bird is a surreal and expressive new world in sound. Moonchild meets Nova Express!
(Release date: March 2016)
Nova Express Quintet: Andras: The Book Of Angels Volume 28 [#8343]
Nova Express is one of Zorn’s most dynamic and sensitive ensembles, an MJQ-tinged quartet featuring piano, vibraphone, bass and drums. For their first foray into the world of Masada, they ar joined by the ever- popular Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista to create a fabulous program of space-age bachelor pad music for the 21st century. Relaxing and unique instrumental music performed by an all-star quintet of musical masters touching upon the exotic language of The Dreamers, Les Baxter, Martin Denny, Bert Kaempfert, Afro-Cuban bop and more.
