4 stars The fourth way according to John Zorn.

Very much in tune with its respective sourcesīdetached sobriety, John Zorn approaches this highly complex, straight forward & unresolved crossword puzzle, sound wise speaking of course, by facing its mysteries up front with heartfelt sonic understandings, which stand close to to its rootsī unpublished recreations, but nevertheless, leaving his own reactions intact. And when it comes to music composition and an original approach, well Mr. Zornīs In Search Of The Miraculous (2010) , can actually do the walk it takes to do the talk.

Expecting great audiences for such a clean, faithful & spirited performance of, otherwise, ignored knowledge, would be like counting from one to two until you die & realize there was a three.

Music wise, expect an unsuspected modern Jazz, 4 piece ensemble (no guitar) & latin influenced, almost masterpiece, which grows deeper, as far as you get the clue where it is really heading and eventually, if hooked, can balance the thrill of why it ends up meeting such strange stylistic encounters, which if anything, will make you kind of think of the world as an upside down possibility, how universal and surprisingly odd it will eventually turn out to be & like it or not will be.

Even I , (who almost by nature have an involuntary allergic reaction against artificial latin moods), am really thrilled, if anything, this material is as close as anyone outside this vibe can come around to turn into his own, and as told , the world as an upside down possibility, as a figure of speach of course (lol), (Donīt worry, this stuff has survived the worst and still speaks for some few,... but more than enough) is still around.

Forget the talk, just let it flow, if not well..........more for us.
