Zion80 will explore Jewish music through an Afrobeat lens at World Cafe Live
For the last twenty years, the bulk of iconoclastic saxophonist/composer John Zorn's mega-prolific output has been devoted to the Masada songbook, which now consists of more than 600 pieces falling under the umbrella of his Radical Jewish Music label. A little more than a decade ago, Zorn began "Book of Angels," the second book of the Masada oeuvre, the songs of which have been interpreted by a stunningly diverse roster of artists - everyone from jazz guitar great Pat Metheny to classical/jazz hybridist Uri Caine to off-kilter rock band Secret Chiefs 3. One of the most recent releases under the "Book of Angels" banner , is Adramelech, the new release on Zorn's Tzadik label by guitarist Jon Madof's Zion80.
