Review by snobb
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars This album (Dimitri Geller's the Rain Horse movie's soundtrack) is one of the most accessible Zorn's work (as many others from his Filmworks series). No avant-jazz trumpet sounds, no hardcore scratches. Chamber acoustic trio of his regular collaborators ( Erik Friedlander / cello, Rob Burger / piano and Greg Cohen / bass) play melancholic jazzy instrumental music based on klezmer.

It's a beautiful music! Acoustic piano plays a jazzy, slightly swinging melodies, when cello's sad but optimistic strings sound brings you somewhere in the ocean of your fantasy.

Zorn's best soundtrack music has unique ability - being just a back-up for some visual works (at least in theory), this music is such full bodied, that easily could require visual illustration for itself. So, you don't need to watch original movie to feel all the music in full, but when listening to it, your imagination easily build a visual line!

With no drums or percussion added, the acoustic bass is only rhythm instrument added on this record. So, sound is soft, rich and melodic. Using same roots as Zorn's Masada, klezmer there is just a deep inspiration for saloon music. All emotions are subtle and refined, but deeply under the skin it's the same music!

Highly recommended for everyone searching on different and beautiful music. Excellent entry for Zorn's world as well!

Four and half, rounded till 5!

For no discernible reason I felt for the longest time that taking this highly experiment ... (read more)

4 stars Rating: B+ In his long career, John Zorn has done everything from extreme avant-garde to relaxing, trance-inducing music, everything from avant-garde classical to metal, from free jazz to klezmer, and all of these sides of Zorn I love. There's one side of Zorn, however, that I only discovered ... (read more)

4 stars A really good start for this new year. Soon Zorn will publish other works, and this is a pretty fascinating one, with good compositions, essential strumentation and relaxing atmospheres. Absolutely enjoyable for all Zorn fans. Waiting for The Dreamers, pick up this and listen.. ... (read more)
