This Week in Buenos Aires

From Buenos Aires,su Nueva Musica:

Short review :Masada at Coliseo Theater, Buenos Aires, March 15, 2012

This was Zorn’s first visit to Argentina or South America. After several attempts to book him since the late 90’s, finally the South American tour became true. Masada played a fantastic concert ,full of energy, imagination, hot solos and solid group improvisations. Zorn was in great mood and played an incredible circular breath solo on the encore. Baron & Cohen were a killer tandem, fired by Zorn´s continuous signals and directions. Douglas ( who visited Buenos Aires a couple of times) was the perfect partner for Zorn and played some soulful solos. A magic night with a group that refuses to age or bore.
