4 stars I'm slowly starting to understand how it works. For me as beginner in this Prog Jazz Rock Fusion something journey, it's important to start with more easy to listen albums and slowly work through to more difficult pieces, some of them even masterpieces.

This is xylophone journey that we are conducting because we want to find Miraculous. Where is this blasted guy ? What should we do when we find him ? Well, for me, Marty, this mysterious M. is peace. Yes, John Zorn is trying to tell us that we should find our inner calmness and enjoy it, whatever it means.

Songs are quite similar in tone, in how they sound, also repetitive a lot (this way of doing music with small step changes is used here). I hope I will meet J. Zorn's Avant Garde work in future, but for now, this is enjoyable little album in about same style as what I reviewed a hour ago, Pat Metheny's Orchestrion

4(-), too "same", not many variations here, but as I said, enjoyable.

Marty McFly | 4/5 |
