John Zorn: The Last Judgment [#8325]
Featuring the same magical Templar quartet from In Sacred Blood, The Last Judgment is the final CD in the remarkable Moonchild septology. The band has explored many different worlds in the 8 years of their existence, and this CD takes a moody and lyrical approach with Medeski’s organ fully integrated into the band. Once again inspired by the legend of the powerful Knights Templar and their tragic demise under accusations of heresy in 1307, Zorn has composed a suite of pieces with a strong sense of continuity and emotional impact. Mike Patton draws on every vocal technique in his huge arsenal and the rhythm section of Dunn and Baron are tighter than ever. The last piece of the Moonchild puzzle—essential!

Karl Berger: Gently Unfamiliar [#4006]
One of the most versatile and active proponents of creative music, Karl Berger is a living legend who has been expanding the Jazz language since the mid-’60s. A pianist, vibraphonist, composer, arranger, conductor and educator of astounding energy and creativity, Karl has worked with many of the greatest names in New Music: Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, Gato Barbieri, Anthony Braxton, Bill Laswell and countless others. Following up on his gorgeous 2010 release of solo piano etudes Strangely Familiar, the second CD of Berger’s Tzadik trilogy presents his distinctive piano stylings in a trio format with a sensitive and supportive rhythm section. Freebop grooves and drifting rubato ballads from three masters of creative music!
