John Zorn’s Masada Marathon
Wed, Mar 30, 2011, 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Written in a flash of creativity during three months in late 2004, the 316 compositions in John Zorn’s Book of Angels contain some of his most lyrical and inspiring music. Performed by a wide variety of ensembles over the past seven years, the music has generated 17 CD recordings to date, with three more scheduled for release in 2011 . This special marathon concert brings together 12 different groups of wildly divergent backgrounds – jazz, rock, classical, world music, jam band, a cappella vocals and more – for one spectacular evening of music from this prolific songbook.
Featuring: Marc Ribot, Uri Caine, Dave Douglas, John Medeski, Secret Chiefs 3, Greg Cohen, Joey Baron, Cyro Baptista, Kenny Wollesen, Jamie Saft, Erik Friedlander, Mark Feldman, Sylvie Courvoisier, Trevor Dunn and many others.
