"The Big Gundown" is my fave and anything he does with Fred Frith (though what he does in private with Frith or anyone else is his own affair...)

I found a used copy of the remastered "Big Gundown (with bonus tracks) a month ago for $5.00. Such a great disc.

Frith is excellent--I love the collaboration he did with Evelyn Glennie.

Have you tried Frith's solo albums - "Cheap at Half the Price" "Gravity" "Technology of Tears" etc? A great laugh but really intelligent at the same time. My favourite track of his is "The As Usual Dance Towards The Other Flight of What Is Not" (which has to be one of the best titles ever!)

I recorded an amazing trio playing some zorn string trios on a mini-dv tape, transfered it to the computer, and learned it had some severe sound drop-outs during the set, apparently the issue was caused during transfer and not on my master tape. Before I could re-attempt a third transfer (second suffered the same problem), I accidentally erased most part of the master... :cry:

After that lot I'd imagine that you'd be severely lacking in the financial department. Encore Records in downtown Kitchner always seems to have a good slice of Zorn but at a premium.

Amazon.com has a ton of Zorn at low prices, both new and used. Oddly enough, I've bought quite a few used Zorn discs at Encore Records in downtown Ann Arbor. Fantastic store, along with Wazoo Records, if you're ever in the Michigan area.

One of the best ever interviews with Zorn -- very recent, 85 minutes, discusses many of his projects and writing processes.

I recently picked up the 3-CD Bar Kokhba Sextet live release (from the month of various shows celebrating Zorn's 50th birthday). If you like Masada or any of Zorn's Jewish music releases, you will love this collection. Marc Ribot is especially awesome in this setting.

Bar Kokhba live, 2007 -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9T5eClyeeI



Bar kohkba Sextet is some seriously gorgeous music.

I don't have much of a Zorn collection, just The Big Gundown on vinyl, all of the Moonchild releases, and a few of the Masada: Book Of Angels CDs - the ones w/ Secret Chiefs 3 + Medeski Martin & Wood. All awesome stuff. Anyway I just finally grabbed the Book Of Angels vol. 7 w/ Marc Ribot.

HOLY SHIT :shock: What a monster trio w/ Trevor Dunn & G. Calvin Weston. Best guitar album I've heard in the last ten years.

I'm confused. Which album are you referring to as the MOnster guitar one?

Oh, I get it now. A Zorn album without Zorn on sax. Will check it out, love Weston, one of the happiest (along with Charles Hayward of This Heat fame) drummers I have ever seen. Totally infectious.

On the three Masada: Book Of Angels CDs I mentioned, Zorn doesn't play on any of them. I bought them more for being a fan of the artists featured. He composed the music and conducted the sessions. Also on the first four out of five Moonchild albums, he doesn't play on those either.

I agree -- those three CD's are awesome. Check out the Book of Angels release by Koby Israelite, as it is mind-blowing -- along the lines of Secret Chiefs 3 but maybe a little crazier even.

Fred Frith & Ensemble Modern - Traffic Continues is a great album too. As are all the Zorn / Frith duo albums!


I created a Fred Frith channel on Pandora last week and have really been enjoying his music -- large variety of styles, much like Zorn.

Just discovered that on Frith's Freedom in Fragments CD is a song entitled "T Square Park Lark (for Frank Zappa)" :lol:

Frith fan here...

Not that I know all of his albums (I know none), but his live recordings I have are very impressive and enjoyable as in innovative and refreshing...
