Zorn, John
The Classic Guide To Strategy

Zorn, John: The Classic Guide To Strategy (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

John Zorn's infamous solo music for saxophone and duckcalls bring together his obsessive love for cartoon music, free jazz and musique concrˇte in a passionate and astonishing heterophony.
The maverick composer, arranger and saxophonist first came to prominence in the early '80's as an improviser. Using self-invented techniques, bizarre effects and unusual tools, Zorn created his own personal instrumental language - instantly recognizable and still breathtaking over a decade later.
Two long-out-of-print albums from 1981 and 1985, now on CD fro the first time. Two records on a single disc - you can't afford not to buy it!
"This music is both exhilarating and frightening. Although the musical ideas can be traced back to earlier recordings such as Mikhail Zoetrope and up to more recent works such as my duos with Yamantaka Eye this stuff still sounds like it's coming from outerspace." - John Zorn
"John Zorn offers us a new view of reed music; it demands our attention." - Evan Parker
