Zorn, John: James Moore Plays The Book Of Heads Ñ Cd And Dvd Of A Film By Stephen Taylor (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    


"Composed 1976-8 and now studied by guitarists the world over, The Book of Heads is one of Zorn's most popular and oft-performed compositions. Utilizing an hermetic language of meticulously notated sounds inspired by contemporary classical extended techniques, the idiosyncratic guitar languages of free improvisation, cartoons, film noir, world music, philosophy and more, they receive a virtuosic reading by James Moore, founding member of the Dither guitar quartet.

This special edition contains both a CD and a beautifully produced DVD of a film by Stephen Taylor showcasing the eclectic techniques involved in all its insane glory. An essential CD/DVD release that gives an in-depth view into some of the most gonzo music ever created for solo guitar. Vexing and endlessly entertaining, you have to see it to believe it! "-Tzadik



NTSC DVD, Region free. 23 page color booklet with images, an essay by Zorn, an essay by Moore, and recording data.
