John Zorn: 49 Acts Of Unspeakable Depravity In The Abominable Life And Times Of Gilles De Rais [#8348]
49 Acts of Unspeakable Depravity in the Abominable Life and Times of Gilles de Rais is the fifth CD by Simulacrum, an organ trio of unparalleled power that brings the sounds of heavy metal, blues, funk and jazz together with modern classical music. Tighter than ever and able to stop and start at breakneck speed, Medeski, Hollenberg and Grohowski are at their raging best as they blaze through Zorn’s wildest flights of fancy—a ten-movement suite evoking a sick and decadent descent into madness. Driven by an intense and powerful fury, this CD contains some of the craziest sounds you are ever likely to hear as genres, noise, instrumental colors and driving rhythms collide head-on. A jaw-dropping visit to a new musical world where absolutely anything is possible!

Composer
Fred Frith: Freedom In Fragments ~~~ A Tzadik Classic! [#7076b]
Active since 1978, the dynamic Rova Saxophone quartet has collaborated with and commissioned from some of the world’s greatest composers. Here they give a dynamic reading of Fred Frith’s major composition Freedom in Fragments, which was written expressly for them and comprises a series of short compositions that can be played in whole or in part and in any given sequence. Rova has chosen the most rigorous of these, and the final sequence, created by the composer himself, gives a seamless flow to the overall listening experience. Messiaenic harmonic shifts, catchy folk melodies, complex dance rhythms and looping minimalism from one of new music’s original border crossers.
