4 stars It is still fall 2009, but John Zorn released five (!) albums this year yet. It means only one thing - he is as active as usual.

"Alhamba Love Songs" is more jazzy album. Without sax, where John Zorn is composer and ..eer, project manager. All music is played by classic jazz trio - piano, bass and drums. And the music is nice.This album contains melodic, moody and not too complex tunes, mostly jazz from 60-s imitations, with light scent of fusion.

The music is very catchy, pleasant, some kind of pop-art-jazz. This album is similar to "O'o" released later this year, but just played by jazz trio, not bigger fusion band.

Another accesible Zorn release, pleasant even to unprepared listener. Strong 4,5. ( still not enough original to be 5 * rated)
