Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars This album opens long and very diverse Masada's Book of Angels series. Piano man Jamie Saft is regular John Zorn's collaborator on different projects, here he plays with own full- acoustic jazz trio (with two other musicians,collaborating with Zorn - bassist Greg Cohen and drummer Ben Perowsky.

Music on this album is very melodic, a bit melancholic jazz - from post bop to contemporary , heavily based on Masada's klezmer tunes. Another element you can easily recognise in this album's music is contemporary music. Well balanced between "serious" and "attractive", this album's compositions present great example of modern jazz. All musicians are extremely competent,and Saft's piano is just excellent!

Great release for jazz lovers, this album lacks adventure - very professional and not boring at all, it sounds too safe for music, associated with John Zorn. And a bit too comfortable.
