Gnostic Trio : The Book Beri’ah Vol 7–Netzach
One of Zorn’s most beloved and unique 21st century ensembles, the Gnostic Trio features the distinctive guitar of Bill Frisell, the vibraphone of Kenny Wollesen and the ethereal harp stylings of Carol Emanuel. The sounds are soulful and heavenly and for this, their seventh cd together, they perform nine tunes from the “Book Beri’ah”, the last book of music completing the Masada legacy. Frisell’s magical sonorities dance around harp and vibraphone creating a heavenly improvisational counterpoint. Truly music of the angels, “Netzach” is a gem.
Personnel:
Carol Emanuel: Harp
Bill Frisell: Guitar
Kenny Wollesen: Vibraphone

John Zorn : Tractatus Musico-Philosophicus
On fire with creativity and burning so brightly that even an uncomprehending world does not deter him, Zorn remains defiant, focused solely on giving expression to the many muses and angels animating his life while harnessing the powers of the chthonic deities buried deep in his subterranean soul. Tractatus brings many of his lifelong interests together into a new musical universe drawing inspiration from philosophy, avant-garde cinema, drama and music.
Personnel:
John Zorn: Sax, Vocals, Fender Rhodes Piano, Prepared Piano, Organ, Guitar, Drums, Bass, Game Calls, Percussion, Objects, Samples
