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)

3 stars John Zorn: Alhambra Love Songs [2009]

Rating: 6/10

John Zorn seems to have become increasingly comfortable with his more melodic side over the past two or three years. Zorn is best known for his absolutely searing avant-garde jazz; his music is not particularly renowned for being easy on the ears. However, many of his recent albums have taken a decidedly more conventional approach. Alhambra Love Songs is a perfect example. This album is a collection of 1950s-style melodic jazz pieces for piano, bass, and percussion (similar to Vince Guaraldi). Most of these tracks would not be out of place in the 'Easy Listening' section. As somebody who is relatively well-acquainted with Zorn's music, this album shocked me because it didn't shock me. One could play this at a cocktail party without receiving a single look askance.

There isn't much to say about this album, to be honest. It's a solid release with amazing musicianship and a pleasant atmosphere. However, there is little variety to found throughout the course of these 11 tracks. I can't imagine anybody taking offense at music like this, but this doesn't mean that it's particularly exciting or compelling. Zorn manages to create something here that is completely disparate from his normal style, and he does it well, to boot. Regardless, this is a shallow release. Alhambra Love Songs is a perfect album for background music; unfortunately, I prefer music with more depth. I can lightly recommend this, but it needs to be taken for what it is.
