5 stars This is a continuation of John Zorn's "rock / jazz / metal / group / series" - and I am stunned by it. It has all aspects of a truly inspired work, with a beautiful mixture of composed / improvised / group effort ensemble play.

The recording itself is quite well done, and the individual members (especially that over talented - John Medeski!!!) bring their creative efforts into play, utilizing the abstract compositions of Mr. Zorn.

As another reviewer said, it would take your lifetime (and maybe the next!) to keep up with all of the recordings of John Zorn. But, these current group efforts are where I would recommend to start, as they're put together as though in the realm of the much hated and loved Avante / Prog / Rock - which I grow more and more fond of, as it's challenging and beautiful at the same time.
