The Painted Bird
The Painted BirdJohn Zorn

Zorn's fourth release in the last year features Kenny Wollesen and his vibraphone. Their collaboration yields an eclectic blend of jazz, metal, classical and world music. Juxtaposing complex atonal lines, driving vamps, heavy metal riffs, improvisational madness, shredding solos and moments of profound lyricism, The Painted Bird is a surreal and expressive new world in sound.

Michel Benita's debut album features an international band whose music, correspondingly flows beyond borders. Colors of folk and colors of jazz are blended in his writing, multi-idiomatic in a very natural way.
