John Zorn in San Francisco Previewed

Calling John Zorn prolific is like describing the Pacific Ocean as vast, or Picasso as protean. It’s true as far as it goes, but it really doesn’t paint an accurate picture of the saxophonist’s scope as a creative force. Even when his Tzadik label releases several dozen CDs documenting his music over the course of a year, the blithely uncategorizable New York composer has zigged or zagged to yet another project, another body of tunes, another collaboration.
