Zorn, John / Banquet of the Spirits: Caym - The Book of Angels Volume 17 (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Banquet of the Spirits is the tight touring band of Cyro Baptista, one of the world's most creative percussionists and one of Zorn's oldest friends and closest collaborators. The veteran of dozens of Zorn film scores, game pieces, bands, tours and compositions. Produced and arranged by the upcoming young bassist Shanir Ezra Blumenkranz, who approaches the music with profound understanding, a wild imagination and indefatigable creativity, it features a dynamic band of young lions, truly the very best of the new generation. Each track touching upon a different world tradition, this dynamic CD brings Zorn's lyrical compositions to life like never before."-Tzadik
