JOHN ZORN’S SIMULACRUM
John Medeski – organ
Matt Hollenberg – el. guitar
Kenny Grohowski – drums
Ruba Club, 416 Green Street
$20 General Admission

The most extreme organ trio ever, Simulacrum is yet another wild direction from maverick composer John Zorn, who continues to explore new worlds and new ensembles into his sixth decade. Passionately performed by the unusual all-star trio of John Medeski (Medeski, Martin & Wood), Matt Hollenberg (Cleric), and Kenny Grohowski (Abraxas), this is powerful and fascinating music. Described as Tony Williams’ Lifetime on steroids, the group performs dramatic through-composed pieces that unfold with a cinematic logic. This genre bending music defies classification, touching upon metal, jazz, minimalism, atonality, noise 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.
