wild Up at Roulette Reviewed

Source: The New York Times.

John Zorn, that most New York of New York composers, made his name in 1985 by nodding to the West with “The Big Gundown,” an album of Ennio Morricone covers. Traveling eastward for its New York debut on Tuesday, the young Los Angeles ensemble wild Up returned the favor. It opened “West,” its raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant concert at Roulette in Brooklyn with a bit of Morricone’s “Il Mercenario,” complete with players rolling tumbleweeds down the aisles.
