The trio of Rob Burger, Greg Cohen & Ben Perowsky perform Zorn's touching and lyrical ode to the San Francisco/Bay Area and the artists who have made it their home.

Zorn, John
Alhambra Love Songs

Zorn, John: Alhambra Love Songs (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"In an easy listening mode, Alhambra Love Songs is Zorn's touching and lyrical ode to the San Francisco/Bay Area and the wonderful artists who have made it their home. Including tributes to artists as diverse as Vince Guaraldi, Clint Eastwood, David Lynch, Mike Patton and Harry Smith, the music is some of the most beautiful and soothing Zorn has ever written. Touching on the jazz/pop/funk trios of Vince Guaraldi and Ramsey Lewis, the music is scored for a remarkable piano trio of Rob Burger (Rufus Wainwright, Marianne Faithfull, Laurie Anderson), Greg Cohen (Ornette Coleman, Masada, Burt Bacharach) and Ben Perowsky (Uri Caine, Steve Bernstein, John Lurie). Evocative and endlessly listenable, this is perhaps the single most charming cd in Zorn's entire catalog, and will appeal to fans of Vince Guaraldi, Ahmad Jamal, Henry Mancini and even George Winston!"-Tzadik
