West Coast clarinest Ben Goldberg in the 15th volume of John Zorn's Masada Book of Angels, performing with bassist Greg Cohen, pianist Jamie Saft and drummer Kenny Wollesen.
 

Goldberg, Ben
Baal: The Book Of Angels Vol. 15

Goldberg, Ben: Baal: The Book Of Angels Vol. 15 (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    


"A mind blowing and fiery new quartet featuring Ben Goldberg, one the true pioneers of Radical Jewish Culture whose groundbreaking group New Klezmer Trio proved an important influence on the Masada legacy. Turning his hand to Masada music in this fabulous all star quartet organized, arranged and conducted by Zorn himself, Ben plays like never before, displaying a sensitive virtuosity and a brilliant sense of sound and space. At times moody, intense, meditative, driving, lyrical and atmospheric, this is brilliant Jewish chamber music from four longtime and intimate members of the Masada family. Absolutely stunning!"-Tzadik
