Tzadik's series reinterpreting John Zorn's Masada compositions releases the 24th "Book of Angels", performed by Klezmerson, a Mexico-based ensemble led by violist & composer Benjamin Shwartz, who founded the group in 2003 to integrate music from a Mexican standpoint.

Amon: The Book Of Angels Volume 24

Klezmerson: Amon: The Book Of Angels Volume 24 (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Get ready to be blown out of your seat! Klezmerson has created one of the most astonishing installments of the entire Angels series-a spectacular reading of Masada material drawing upon the rich tradition of Mexican music from Oaxaca to Veracruz. Touching upon Henry Mancini, Xavier Cugat, psyche- delia and so much more, this is without doubt one of the wildest, most creative, flamboyant and masterful readings of Masada material since the Secret Chiefs 3. The work of a maestro in total control of his craft, Amon takes Masada to unimagined places! Essential."-Tzadik

"Benjamin Shwartz, violist, pianist and composer decided to experiment with old and new sounds and difrent flavors back in 2003 integrating Klezmer music from a Mexican standpoint.

Klezmerson gracefully combines melodies and rhythms from Europe's Jewish tradition and interacts with gypsy and Mexican influences, it creates a peculiar fusion including rock, funk and jazz improvisations."-Klezmerson Website
