Their fifth CD and their first in over 4 years, Zorn’s most delightful and popular instrumental unit returns with nine compositions inspired by the imaginary worlds of fantasy literature. Featuring some of Zorn’s catchiest melodies and plenty of fiery solos from Ribot, Saft and Wollesen, Pellucidar blends soul, surf, jazz, minimalism, rumba, tango, samba, exotica and more in classic Dreamers style. Featuring a 36-page booklet filled with colorful art by Tzadik’s exclusive designer Chippy, Pellucidar is a long awaited addition to the sparkling Dreamers legacy! An absolute delight from first note to last this is exotic fantasy music for the 21st century!

John Zorn: Forro Zinho — Forro In The Dark Plays Zorn [#8334]
There has never been a Zorn CD like this one! One of the most exciting bands to come out of the wild late night Nublu scene in the East Village, Forro in the Dark combines the driving dance rhythms of forro from Northeastern Brazil with rock, jazz, reggae, folk and country. Together since 2002, they are based in New York and have collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including David Byrne, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Cibo Matto. Here they take on some of Zorn’s most lyrical and grooving compositions to create a charming CD of Brazilian-tinged dance music.
Endlessly listenable, this is a CD filled with catchy hooks, burning solos, driving rhythms and infectious Zorn melodies, new and old. Produced by Jesse Harris and featuring Brazilian legend Marcos Valle as a special guest.
