VINYL SERIES TO HELP OFFSET THE LOSS FROM THE PLEDGE DISASTER Hi everyone. The deal to salvage Pledge has fallen through and it looks like we will NOT be paid. Below are the details of our vinyl series that we hope will help offset the huge financial damage from this disaster. Please help us by purchasing the collection — and spread the word to your friends! The LPs are a limited edition so put your preorder in as soon as you can—it should be up and running now at this address: https://tzadik.limitedrun.com/ thanks to you all for the continued support! John Zorn FULL 4-LP COLLECTION $100 FULL 4-LP COLLECTION SIGNED $200 SINGLE LP $30 SINGLE LP SIGNED $60 JZ VINYL COLLECTION A new limited edition vinyl series of select releases out of the Zorn catalog! Personally chosen by Zorn for release on vinyl, the LPs are beautifully made and packaged in the original artwork. A limited number of copies of each release, signed by John Zorn, will be made available for sale. Collectable and rare, purchase them all before they disappear! MASADA—THE BEST OF SANHEDRIN John Zorn: Sax Dave Douglas: Trumpet Greg Cohen: Bass Joey Baron: Drums The first Masada music ever presented on vinyl! John Zorn, Dave Douglas, Greg Cohen and Joey Baron performing inspiring and influential music that is truly a joy to hear. This best-of collection contains seven masterful performances by the original quartet recorded in the first few years of its reign as one of the most exciting small jazz ensembles ever. This is a classic release in the tradition of classic collectable jazz LPs, with a warm sound and 3 or 4 tracks to each side. NOVE CANTICI PER FRANCESCO D’ASSISI Julian Lage: Guitar Bill Frisell: Guitar Gyan Riley: Guitar A beautiful new suite of John Zorn music performed by the all-star guitar trio of Bill Frisell, Julian Lage and Gyan Riley! Inspired by the life and thought of the beloved spiritual figure Saint Francis of Assisi these ten lovely compositions sound beautiful on vinyl. An essential release that will appeal to perhaps the widest audience Zorn has ever had, this is truly music of the Angels. THE LAST JUDGMENT Mike Patton: Voice John Medeski: Organ Trevor Dunn: Bass Joey Baron: Drums Featuring vocalist extraordinaire Mike Patton, organ virtuoso John Medeski, bass wizard Trevor Dunn and drum master Joey Baron, the Moonchild project was an all-star group that combined heavy rock with jazz improvisation and classical compositional complexity. The climax of their eight years together (2006–2014) was their final recording The Last Judgment, now presented on vinyl for the very first time. The music is intense, dramatic and lyrical, with plenty of melodic hooks, harmonic twists and textural insanity. Patton sings, howls, screams and intones with the passion and power of a man possessed! ALHAMBRA LOVE SONGS Rob Burger: Piano Greg Cohen: Bass Ben Perowsky: Drums One of the most lovely piano trios ever, Alhambra Love Songs is Zorn’s lyrical ode to the San Francisco/Bay Area and the wonderful artists who have made it their home. Touching on the easy listening/jazz/funk of Vince Guaraldi, Ahmad Jamal and Ramsey Lewis, the music is scored for the remarkable piano trio of Rob Burger, Greg Cohen and Ben Perowsky. Evocative and endlessly listenable, this is one of the most charming projects in the entire Zorn catalog—and sounds beautiful on vinyl!

JULIAN LAGE AND GYAN RILEY THE BOOK BERI’AH VOL 4—CHESED TZA CD 5104 Julian Lage, Gyan Riley. Katanot * Zeir Anpin * Sachel * Tohu * Hekhalot Zutari * Shevirah * Devekut * Dibor * Pnimiyut * Bohu The duo of Julian Lage and Gyan Riley is now legendary. Featuring a high level of virtuosity tempered by elegance, love, respect and impeccable taste, their work with Zorn has produced a variety of masterpieces—a magical set of Bagatelles, the sweet midnight music of Midsummer Moons and the rocking new band Insurrection. Here they pour their soulful mastery into ten compositions from The Book Beri’ah and their magical interplay is at its most telepathic as they work every possible variation out of these lyrical and adventurous Zorn compositions. Intimate and imaginative, this is music that will appeal to guitar fans, jazz fans, Jewish music fans and more!

Spike Orchestra THE BOOK BERI’AH VOL 3—Binah TZA CD 5103 Mike Wilkins, Paul Booth, Josephine Davies, Gemma Moore, Noel Langley, George Hogg, Yazz Ahmed, Sam Eastmond, Ben Greenslade-Stanton, Tim Smart, Oren Marshall, Moss Freed, Elliot Galvin, Mike Guy, Mark Lewandowski, Will Glaser. Levushim * Damam * Shamayim * Tevunah * Talpiot * Posekim * Kelim * Machshavah * Ma’amarot Based in London, The Spike Orchestra is one of the most adventurous Big Bands working today, blending jazz, rock, klezmer, cartoon music and the avant garde into a cohesive and compelling whole. Their first Masada project Cerberus was a surprise hit and one of the most powerful and imaginative interpretations in the entire Book of Angels series. Here they top that spectacular CD with new interpretations from The Book Beri’ah. With influences ranging from Gil Evans, Frank Zappa, Zorn and the most experimental side of the Stan Kenton organization, Spike Orchestra creates an incredibly varied program of Masada music at its rocking best. Astonishing big band jazz leading us into the 21st century.

John Zorn THE HERMETIC ORGAN VOL 6—For Edgar Allan Poe TZA CD 8362 John Zorn. The Masque of the Red Death * The Fall of the House of Usher In these two spectacular performances Zorn literally “pulls out all the stops” in paying tribute to one of his favorite writers, the legendary Edgar Allan Poe, whose fantastical creations continue to capture the imagination of those interested in the dark side. Calling upon the Angels in two extended improvisations inspired by the haunting and frightening imagery of one of the world’s masters of fantasy and the imagination, the music features some of the strangest sounds you have ever heard come out of the instrument. This is organ improvisation at its most outrageous and macabre. You have never heard such sounds!
John Zorn Mar 19, 2019
Thanks everyone! We at Tzadik are delighted that you have received your orders and that you are all enjoying the music so much. This was a labor of love for us. It took years to put together and we spared no expense on making a package that was beautiful, elegant and special. Unfortunately we have not been paid. Not one cent. We are hoping that Pledge will somehow bounce back and honor its commitments—but in the meantime we are initiating a new limited edition vinyl series to help Tzadik get back on track. The manufacturers, designers and distributors are all donating their services to help us and we are hoping that you, our fans, will pitch in and support what we do by purchasing these special vinyl titles. More information will be forthcoming. Please spread the word—and thanks as always for your continued support. With warm wishes and many thanks — John Zorn

CLERIC THE BOOK BERI’AH VOL 2—CHOKHMA TZA CD 5102 Matt Hollenberg, Dan Kennedy, Nick Shellenberger, Larry Kwartowitz, Timba Harris, Ludovic Beier. Gadolot * Panim * Kav * Nogah * Separ * Imma * Ta’amim * Iyyun * Chalal At the forefront of the new rock complexity, Cleric is one of the most cutting edge bands out of the experimental Metal community. Here they put their hand to nine compositions from Masada Book Three. Masada fans since they were in their teens, the band has put an extra measure of creativity into this project, weaving the tunes into insane arrangements of epic proportions. Outrageous, exhilarating and intense music that combines Metal with modern classical, jazz and the Jewish tradition. You have never heard such sounds in your life!

SOFíA REI AND JC MAILLARD THE BOOK BERI’AH VOL 1—KETER TZA CD 5101 Sofia Rei, JC Maillard, Franco Pinna, Thierry Arpino. Ge’ulah * Setumah * Kayam * Rachamim * Penimi * Orot * Tikkun * Ketarim The fabulous voice of Sofía Rei has graced several Zorn vocal projects, from the acappella quartet Mycale to the dynamic Song Project, and here she interprets eight compositions from the Book Beri’ah—the third and last book completing the Masada legacy. Featuring the remarkable JC Maillard on saz bass, the arrangements are incredibly varied, and range from lyrical heartfelt ballads to driving grooves. Intimate and intensely personal, this is one of the most unique Masada CDs in the entire series! Unforgettable.
John Zorn Jan 22, 2019
John Zorn SALEM 1692 TZA CD 8361 Julian Lage, Matt Hollenberg, Trevor Dunn, Kenny Grohowski. The Devil Bid Me Serve Him * Spectral Evidence * Tituba * Witness to an Invisible World * Spell Bound * Malleus Malleficarum * Dark of the Moon * Under an Evil Hand * Sarah Good * I Will Not Write In Your Book Though You Do Kill Me! The second studio CD by Zorn’s incendiary new instrumental quartet Insurrection presents a remarkable suite evoking the tragic reign of terror in the Early American settlement of the Massachusetts Bay Colony commonly known as The Salem Witch Trials. The music is both intense and hauntingly beautiful, touching upon aspects of Possession, Magic, Witchcraft, Hysteria, Tragedy and Transformation. Tighter than ever, this dynamic instrumental quartet performs brilliantly in this spellbinding followup to their eponymous first release. Featuring some of the most insane guitar fireworks ever, “Salem 1692” is no less than a musical reign of terror.
