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.

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.

In a Convex mirror
TZA CD 8360
John Zorn, Ches Smith, Ikue Mori.
Veve * Through a Glass, Darkly * Le Tourbillon
In a Convex Mirror features Zorn’s unique saxophone playing and keyboard stylings in an extended foray into the nexus of voudun and downtown improvisation. An intense student of Haitian drumming and a regular at ceremonies from NYC to Port-au-Prince Haiti, Ches Smith weaves a hypnotic tapestry of polyrhythms that are constantly in flux. The result is an exciting new context for Zorn the performer. With special guest Ikue Mori creating moody electronic soundscapes, the music is as hypnotic as it is exhilarating. Three pieces of sonic voodoo for the 21st century!
