sample the album:
"Lucifer is the first studio recording in over ten years by the most popular and best selling Masada ensemble ever. Here they play better and tighter than ever, blending Sephardic and Ashkenazi sonorities with latin, surf, world music and more in an inimitable easy listening instrumental style. Lyrical and soulful, this is some of the most exciting and enjoyable chamber music you are ever likely to hear. Lucifer is yet another brilliant release from Zorn's Book of Angels-one of the most consistent and compelling collections on Tzadik."-Tzadik
