John Zorn - 50th Birthday Celebration Vol. 4: Electric Masada (2004)


The long awaited first release of Zorn's most recent and most powerful Masada unit. A true downtown supergroup, blending the raw power of Naked City with the improvisational madness of Cobra and the lyrical soul of the Masada songbook, Electric Masada is considered by many to be the most exciting band Zorn has ever had. This set, the taut climax of a three night run at Tonic, features the full octet at its wildest and most creative. Incredible solos, jaw dropping ensemble conductions and much more.

Personnel:
Cyro Baptista: Percussion

Joey Baron: Drums

Trevor Dunn: Bass

Ikue Mori: Laptop Electronics

Marc Ribot: Guitar

Jamie Saft: Keyboards

Kenny Wollesen: Drums

John Zorn: Alto Saxophone
