John Schott : Actual Trio

A veteran of Junk Genius with Ben Goldberg, T.J. Kirk with Charlie Hunter as well as varied projects with Tom Waits, John Zorn and many others, John Schott is one of the most dynamic guitarists out of the Bay Area. For his third CD on Tzadik he presents an exciting guitar trio with two of his closest musical associates.

Personnel:
John Schott: Guitar
Dan Seamans: Bass

John Zorn : Inferno

The third CD from Zorn’s most dangerous new instrumental ensemble is inspired by the work and thought of Swedish playwright, poet, painter, philosopher, novelist, alchemist and occultist August Strindberg, whose dark brooding visions were a precursor to expressionism, surrealism and more. Featuring the long form composition “Inferno,” named after one of Srindberg’s most startling texts, the music touches upon metal, jazz, minimalism, atonality, ambient and more. White hot burning intensity from the mind of downtown NY’s eternally youthful hell-raiser performed by a virtuoso trio forged from the worlds of jazz and metal.

Personnel:
John Medeski: Organ
Kenny Grohowski: Drums
Matt Hollenberg: Guitar
