JOHN ZORN 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!

JOHN ZORN INSURRECTION TZA CD 8359 Julian Lage, Matt Hollenberg, Trevor Dunn, Kenny Grohowski. The Recognitions * Pulsations * A Void * Mason and Dixon * Progeny * The Journal of Albion Moonlight * The Atrocity Exhibition * The Unnameable * Cat’s Cradle * Nostromo Insurrection is an intense new instrumental project featuring guitar wizards Julian Lage and Matt Hollenberg with the incredible rhythm section of Trevor Dunn and Kenny Grohowski. Inspired by some of the greatest experimental novels of the 20th century the music is incredibly varied, combining rock, funk, blues, jazz, classical and more—often in the same song! Gnarly atonal melodies, bizarre harmonies, astonishing guitar fireworks and telepathic group interaction make this one of Zorn’s most scintillating and adventurous new projects. Everyone is playing at their best here, and you have never heard such sounds! As always Zorn pulls the very best out of the musicians and they play some of the most outrageous solos you have ever heard. Essential!

SOME GOOD NEWS AND SOME BAD NEWS We received the tip-on CD jackets and the paper inner sleeves. The manufacturing is impeccable—they came out just beautifully! Unfortunately we were not as lucky with the velvet lined boxes. They are way below both our standards and our expectations and we refused them. We are switching manufacturers and have been told it will take 8 weeks to get these done which means our deadline will move to July. We are very sorry about this delay but hope you understand our commitment to quality. All of us at Tzadik are really excited about this project and we want to be sure everything is just right. Our sincere apologies and heartfelt thanks for your continued support, understanding and patience. We will update you as we know more. In the coming weeks we hope to get more people on board to purchase this exciting set of music, so please spread the word where you can! —John Zorn

John Zorn’s Masada songbook project has resulted in some of the most exciting new Jewish music of the past century. This special concert of the third book, The Book Beriah, features Secret Chiefs 3, Banquet of the Spirits, and Zion80, three exciting bands from the Masada family. "Few people have done more to keep the Klezmer tradition, and the Jewish musical tradition at large, alive than John Zorn. His Masada band melds the melodic content of Klezmer with loose structures and avant-garde sensibilities.” – Forward.com Co-presented with World Music Institute. Tickets start at: $40 Standard | $34 Members | $25 Thirty & Under with ID https://www.symphonyspace.org/event/9805/Music/john-zorns-masada-book-3-the-book-beriah

JOHN ZORN THE URMUZ EPIGRAMS TZA CD 8358 John Zorn, Ches Smith. Disgusted with Life * This Piano Lid Serves as a Wall * With Wet Clothes and Disheveled Hair He Wandered in the Dead of Night in Search of Shelter * Then Again, Who Amongst us can Complain * A Rain of Threats and Screams * The Pelican or the Pelicaness * After That the Funnel Became a Symbol * Desperate from Having Been Left without a Bladder With The Urmuz Epigrams Zorn returns to his roots, using the recording studio as instrument to create an intensely personal suite of compositions in the style of his legendary File Card compositions and Zoetropes. Dedicated to the visionary Romanian writer Urmuz whose small, scattered body of work predated Dadaism by decades, The Urmuz Epigrams is a suite of surrealistic miniatures more akin to philosophical aphorisms than actual music. The pieces are presented here in two iterations, as a set of “rare 78rpm records” complete with surface scratches and limited dynamic range, and as a modern reconstruction of same with the full blown studio sound presented in all its perplexing glory. Some of the craziest music in the Zorn catalog!
