Zorn, John: A Vision In Blakelight (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Inspired by the spiritual mythology of William Blake, A Vision in Blakelight is the latest in Zorn's continuing series of 21st century mystical works. With a cinematic sweep reminiscent of his best film scores the music is alternately romantic, ominous, ecstatic, driving and meditative. Featuring the Nova quartet augmented by harp and percussion-and the charismatic Jack Huston reciting from Blake's Jerusalem on one mysterious track-this suite of ten instrumental miniatures references jazz, classical, easy listening, film music and minimalism. A lovely and varied suite reflecting the humanistic philosophy of the immortal visionary William Blake with a dramatic and brilliant lyricism."-Tzadik
