John Zorn : Nove Cantici Per Francesco D’Assisi

Composed for a museum residency at the Frick in New York City, “Nove Cantici” is a beautiful suite of music inspired by the life and thought of the beloved spiritual figure Saint Francis of Assisi. A fitting follow-up to the beautiful and moody acoustic guitar CD “Midsummer Moons” from 2017, here the astounding guitar duo of Julian Lage and Gyan Riley is expanded to a trio with the addition of legendary guitarist Bill Frisell. Ten lovely, spiritual compositions for meditation and contemplation performed by three of the most renown guitarists in the world. An essential release that will appeal to perhaps the widest audience Zorn has ever had.

Source: 5049 Records.

For episode 215 clarinetist Aaron Novik swings by for a go-round on the mics. Raised in Connecticut, he lived in San Francisco for several years, where nurtured several longstanding musical relationships. Aaron moved to New York in 2015 and starting tomorrow night , July 16th, he’s kicking off a weeklong residency at the Stone. In an unprecedented move, for each performance Aaron is releasing an EP of new music. Aaron is a sweetheart and I’m glad we finally found the time to talk on the mics. Sorry for the salt levels.
