Album Review

Over the years, John Zorn has offered up more projects than one can easily keep track of and you can find both passionate advocates and passionate detractors for almost every one of them. Every one, except perhaps Bar Kokhba. It's the Masada String Trio (Mark Feldman, Erik Friedlander, and Greg Cohen) augmented by Marc Ribot (guitar), Joey Baron (drums), and Cyro Baptista (percussion). Their albums have all been exquisite and their release in the Zorn 50th Birthday series was perhaps the best of that series. Here they are with their first studio recording in over a decade, and their first of Zorn's Masada: Book Two material. Honestly, with this material and these players, you just can't go wrong. There are highlights aplenty, starting with Ribot and Baptistsa on the opening track. Friedlander and Feldman shine on both "Dalquiel" and "Quelamia." Joey Baron tears it up on "Gediel" and does some great brushwork on "Azbugah." The playing all the way around is just fantastic. You could even play this album for your grandmother, something you can't say about much of the rest of the Zorn catalog. Whether you like all his projects or not, John Zorn's output has been of a consistently high quality. Lucifer: Book of Angels, Vol. 10 is among the finest offerings in his discography, and a very accessible one at that.

Customer Reviews

Bar Kokhba - Lucifer

Bar Kokhba's Lucifer balances musical traditions from both Ashkenazi and Sephardic klezmer styles with latin, surf, and world music. A choice selection of ten tracks from John Zorn's prolific portfolio of over three-hundred compositions for Masada Book Two: The Book of Angels. These tunes all reference a name from the spiritual study of angelology. Personal favourites from the tenth edition in this Tzadik series include "Zazel", "Gediel", "Rahal", "Azbugah", and "Abdiel". Bar Kokhba play intimate chamber music that illustrates a beautiful collage of contrast and creativity; delicate and diverse music expressed with eloquence and elegance.

The one word virtually everyone can agree on in any discussion of the work of composer John Zorn is "prolific," in the strictest sense of the definition. Though he didn't begin making records until 1980, the recordings under his own name number well over 100, and the sheer number of works he has performed on, composed, or produced easily doubles that number. Though now an internationally renowned musician and the founder and owner of the wildly successful and equally prolific Tzadik imprint, Zorn...
