Released in: USA
"An eclectic suite inspired by revolutionary French writer Arthur Rimbaud! Featuring a remarkable classical chamber work whose tempo is constantly in flux (Bateau Ivre), a powerful electronic composition (A Season in Hell), a fully notated virtuosic piano piece accompanied by an improvised free jazz rhythm section (Illuminations) and an outrageous file card piece with Zorn on sax, piano, guitar and foley effects and renegade actor/director Mathieu Amalric reading texts from Rimbaud's intense and hilarious L'Album Zutique (Conneries). One of his most personal creations, this is a CD only Zorn could conjure up!"-"-Tzadik
