Forro / John Zorn Collaboration Reviewed

English: forro in the dark at the mint, la, 11...

From the Village Voice:

Here’s the thing about covering the music of another artist: It’s completely and totally mortifying when it doesn’t go perfectly and said musician is sitting in the venue watching the disaster unfold. This happened with Forro in the Dark on the occasion of their first live foray into the material from Forro Zinho – Forro in the Dark Plays John Zorn, the collaborative effort with the inventive, prolific multi-instrumentalist and composer that came out on July 28.
