Zorn, John: Filmworks VIII 1997 (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Zorn's Masada music has never sounded as beautiful or as evocative as in this recording originally created for "Port Of Last Resort" - a film documentary about the Jewish refugees who escaped Nazi Germany by resettling to Shanghai. Augmenting the exciting Masada String Trio with the sensual pipa of Min Xiao-Fen, the versatile guitar of Marc Ribot and the ivory touch of Anthony Coleman's piano stylings, this music blends Jewish and Chinese themes in a way both touching and fresh. Also included is an exotic all-percussion score for Ela Troyano's quirky gay porno film "Latin Boys Go To Hell," featuring the bizarre sonorities and driving rhythms of Cyro Baptista and Kenny Wollesen. All music composed and arranged by John Zorn"-Tzadik
