John Zorn brings together Downtown New Yorkers, Marc Ribot on guitar, Trevor Dunn on bass and Tyshawn Sorey on drums, for 12 instrumental miniatures combining atonal lyricism with rock intensity; scronky, demanding and exciting hybrids of improv and rock.

Valentine's Day

Zorn, John: Valentine's Day (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"An exciting new world of instrumental rock featuring three generations of Downtown superstars-Marc Ribot (Ceramic Dog, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Melvins, Fantômas) and Tyshawn Sorey (Steve Coleman, Anthony Braxton, Vijay Iyer). Written in 2010, these 12 instrumental miniatures combine atonal lyricism with rock intensity-Schoenberg meets Beefheart's Magic Band. Originally released as duos in 2011 on the now legendary Enigmata CD (one of the most vexing CDs in Zorn's catalog) the music is made more visceral and dynamic in this special trio version with the addition of the powerful drums of Tyshawn Sorey. Insane, outrageous and exhilarating!"-Tzadik
