Zorn, John: Filmworks XXIV: The Nobel Prizewinner (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Called in at the last minute to score this bizarre and fascinating black comedy out of the Netherlands, Zorn responded to the stark black and white cinematography by turning in this intimate and moody score for piano trio. Brilliantly performed by Rob Burger, the fabulous pianist from Alhambra Love Songs, along with the dynamic rhythm section of Trevor Dunn and Kenny Wollesen, they capture the mood beautifully, bringing a subtle depth to Zorn's lyrical and evocative compositions. Touching upon Debussy, Glass, Guaraldi and Satie, this is a fabulously enjoyable installment of the popular FilmWorks series!"-Tzadik
