W 2014 roku John Zorn skończył 60 lat, poprosił swoich ulubionych autorów (Mike Patton, Jesse Harris, Sean Lennon i Laurie Anderson) o napisanie tekstów do wybranych tematów jego autorstwa, pochodzących z repertuaru Naked City, Masada, The Dreamers i prac filmowych.

Gwiazdorski zaspół złożony ze stałych partnerów Zorna - Cyro Baptista, Joey Baron, Trevor Dunn, John Medeski, Marc Ribot, Kenny Wollesen i trójki wokalistów Mike Patton, Jesse Harris i Sofia Rei na 'The Song Project' prezentuje niezwykłą retrospektywę twórczości Zorna, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem jego lirycznych kompozycji powstałych na przestrzeni ostatnich 30 lat.

Edycja kompaktowa to rejestracja koncertu w nowojorskiej Le Poisson Rouge, w którym wzięli udział Jesse Harris, Mike Patton, Sofia Rei, Trevor Dunn, Joey Baron, Marc Ribot, John Medeski, Cyro Baptista, Kenny Wollesen i oczywiście dyrygujący całością John Zorn.

The Song Project to po wielokroć wyjątkowe wydawnictwo, po pierwsze słyszymy znane tematy najpopularniejszych projektów Zorna, takich jak m.in. Naked City, Masada, The Dreamers, Nova Express, po drugie doborowy skład wieloletnich współpracowników Zorna to samonapędzająca się orkiestra, grając ze sobą od wielu lat uzyskują magiczny wręcz poziom porozumienia, po trzecie w końcu urodzinowy kontekst wprowadza wiele radości grania, humoru i luzu.
Dodatkowo nieustanne przechodzenie od stylu do stylu, różnicowanie grup instrumentalnych sprawia, że co rusz jesteśmy zaskakiwani. Wszechstronność Johna Zorna nie przestaje zadziwiać!

Editor's info:
A live concert version of Zorn’s acclaimed song project! In celebration of his 60th Birthday, Zorn asked his most acclaimed vocal collaborators to write lyrics to select compositions from his vast musical catalog. Including music originally written for Naked City, Masada, The Dreamers, a variety of film soundtracks and more, The Song Project is a retrospective of some of Zorn's most lyrical compositions from the past 30 years. This CD presents the all-star band performing live in New York after a dozen European concerts and at the peak of their powers. Electricity is in the air from first note to last! A perfect companion to the studio versions presented in the acclaimed box set of vinyl 7-inch singles.

C’est a l’occasion de son 60e anniversaire que ZORN a demandé a quelques-uns de ses collegues chanteurs (MIKE PATTON, JESSE HARRIS et SOFIA REI) d'écrire les paroles d'une sélection des morceaux les plus lyriques qu'il composât au cours des trente dernieres années (pour MASADA, NAKED CITY, DREAMERS ou pour le cinéma). Douze instrumentaux passés chansons ont ainsi fondé le corpus d'un luxueux coffret de six 45 tours, comprenant en sus un livret de 32 pages avec les paroles, des photos, etc, édité fin 2014. En voici le complément live et au format CD : le groupe en concert a New York, suite a une tournée européenne, et les neuf membres des DREAMERS, version élargie, gonflés a bloc ! L'électricté était palpable de la premiere a la derniere note.

Drawing upon his experience in classical, jazz, rock, hardcore punk, klezmer, film, cartoon, popular, world and improvised music, John Zorn has created a controversial and influential body of work that often defies academic categories. He has earned great respect within his own community and beyond by going his own way without compromise, developing a large network of supporters world wide, often in unexpected places. Born in 1953 and raised in New York City, Zorn has been a central figure in the Downtown Scene since 1975, incorporating a wide variety of creative musicians into various compositional formats. He is an indefatigable worker and highly prolific: he has composed 6 string quartets, vocal music, chamber music, operas, symphonic and dance works, has released over 100 cds under his own name, has led and written music for dozens of bands (Naked City, The Dreamers, Moonchild, Painkiller), scored over 50 films, and written over 600 tunes for his popular Masada project. His work is diverse and remarkably eclectic and draws inspiration from Art, Literature, Film, Theatre, Philosophy, Alchemy and Mysticism as well as Music.

In addition to his composing, recording and performing Zorn is a firm believer in community and a tireless champion of experimental music, film, art, poetry and theatre, organizing festivals, recordings and concerts, and helping to establish venues and opportunities for performance. He founded the Tzadik label in 1995 (which has released over 700 recordings of new and adventurous music); runs the East Village performance space The Stone (which has presented over 5000 concerts and 60 musical workshops since 2005) and has edited and published six volumes of musician’s writings under the title ARCANA. Honors include the Cultural Achievement Award from the National Foundation for Jewish Culture and the William Schuman Prize for composition from Columbia University. He was inducted into the Long Island Hall of Fame by Lou Reed in 2010 and is a MacArthur Fellow.


Mike Patton
Michael Allan Patton (born January 27, 1968, in Eureka, California) is an American singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and video game voice actor, best known as the lead singer of the rock band Faith No More from 1988 to 1998, which recently reunited in 2009 and will be touring Europe this summer. He has also handled lead vocals and composed music for Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Lovage, Fantômas, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Moonchild Trio and Peeping Tom.


Jesse Harris
Originally from New York City, Jesse Harris is a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer of artists from all over the world. He has been making records since the mid 90s, when he started in the group Once Blue on EMI Records. It was his first experience writing for another singer, lead vocalist, Rebecca Martin. Combining folk, jazz and pop, the group defined a direction for Harris and was also notable for featuring the guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel.

As a solo artist since then Jesse has released 12 albums, including many with his former backing band The Ferdinandos, one all-instrumental recording (Cosmo), and his latest, Borne Away, an intimate and haunting solo acoustic presentation with subtle overdubs played or sung by Harris. It stands in stark contrast to his previous release, Sub Rosa, a large production, recorded and mixed mostly in Rio de Janeiro, with arrangements of strings and horns, and guest artists such as Conor Oberst (on whose Bright Eyes album, I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning, Jesse played guitar), Melody Gardot (with whom he has written several songs, for her albums My One And Only Thrill and The Absence), Bill Frisell (making his second appearance on a Harris recording), and Norah Jones.

In 2003 he received the Grammy Award for Song Of The Year for Norah Jones’ breakout hit “Don’t Know Why,” from her debut album, Come Away With Me, which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Four other Harris compositions appear on it, “Shoot The Moon,” “One Flight Down,” “I’ve Got To See You Again,” and “The Long Day Is Over,” and he plays guitar throughout. Since then, Jones and Harris have collaborated many times. She duets with him on “What Makes You” from his album The Secret Sun and sings harmonies on several others,Crooked Lines, While The Music Lasts and Watching The Sky. He appears as guitarist on almost all of her albums, contributing songwriting to The Fall, and produced her version of his song “World Of Trouble” for the Ethan Hawke film The Hottest State. That soundtrack features not only Harris’ score, but new versions of his songs by Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Cat Power, Feist, The Black Keys, M. Ward, Brad Mehldau, Bright Eyes, and others. Recently Harris and Jones got together to record his song “It Was The Last Thing On Your Mind,” which is featured, along with a scene of them performing it, in the forthcoming comedy They Came Together, starring Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd.

Other artists who have covered his material include Smokey Robinson, Sasha Dobson (whose album Modern Romance he co-produced with Richard Julian), George Benson, Pat Metheny, and Solomon Burke, on whose album Like A Fire Harris also plays guitar and sings backing vocals. Songwriting collaborations have included Madeleine Peyroux, Lizz Wright, and Maria Gadu.

Recently Jesse joined John Zorn’s The Song Project, along with Mike Patton and Sofia Rei, writing lyrics for various Zorn compositions and singing them at festivals worldwide with an all-star band that features Marc Ribot on guitar, John Medeski on keyboards, and Zorn conducting.


Sofia Rei
Sofía Rei is considered one of the most passionate, charismatic and inventive vocalists on the current New York music scene. Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, her own music is grounded in traditional South American rhythms such as chacarera, zamba and vidala from Argentina, Afro-Peruvian festejo and lando, Afro-Uruguayan candombe, Colombian cumbia and bullerengue and other genres that merge involving jazz harmonies, electronic sounds and rich improvisations. Singing in Spanish, English or Portuguese, Sofia’s voice brings more than the depth and fullness of a riveting voice, tying together diverse influences in a program full of rhythmic complexity, and a melodic purity that haunts even as it uplifts. Her ensemble produces a range of textures as diverse as the cultural roots of its members, an international cast that includes some of the most exciting young talent from North and South America.


Marc Ribot w/ Ikue Mori - (live score to Jennifer Reeves' "Shadows Choose Their Horrors" and other shorts)
Marc Ribot, who the New York Times describes as “a deceptively articulate artist who uses inarticulateness as an expressive device,” has released over 20 albums under his own name over a 30-year career, exploring everything from the pioneering jazz of Albert Ayler to the Cuban son of Arsenio Rodríguez. His latest solo release, Silent Movies (Pi Recording 2010) has been described as a “down-in-mouth-near master piece” by the Village Voice and has landed on several Best of 2010 lists including the LA Times and critical praise across the board. 2013 saw the release of “Your Turn” (Northern Spy), the sophomore effort from Ribot’s post-rock/noise trio Ceramic Dog, and 2014 saw the monumental release: “Marc Ribot Trio Live at the Village Vanguard” (Pi Recordings), documenting Marc’s first headline and the return of Henry Grimes at the historical venue in 2012 already included on Best of 2014 lists including Downbeat Magazine and NPR’s 50 Favorites.

Rolling Stone points out that “Guitarist Marc Ribot helped Tom Waits refine a new, weird Americana on 1985's Rain Dogs, and since then he’s become the go-to guitar guy for all kinds of roots-music adventurers: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp.” Additional recording credits include Neko Case, Diana Krall, Elton John/Leon Russell’s The Union, Solomon Burke, John Lurie’s Lounge Lizards, Marianne Faithful, Joe Henry, Allen Toussaint, Medeski Martin & Wood, Caetono Veloso, Susana Baca, Allen Ginsburg, Madeline Peyroux, Nora Jones, Jolie Holland, Akiko Yano, The Black Keys, and many others. Marc works regularly with Grammy® award winning producer T Bone Burnett and NY composer John Zorn. He has also composed and performed on numerous film scores such as “Walk The Line” (Mangold), “The Kids Are All Right,” and “The Departed” (Scorcese).

“…he can sit down with just his guitar and simultaneously confound you with technique, beauty, and surprise.” – John Garratt and Will Layman, PopMatters Picks: The Best Music of 2010 for the album “Silent Movies”


John Medeski
Keyboard master John Medeski thrives on the unpredictable, a trait that has kept his work with the trailblazing trio Medeski Martin & Wood (MMW) fresh and surprising for more than twenty years. With A Different Time, his first solo piano project, Medeski once again takes his sound in a completely unexpected direction – unexpected even to him…


Trevor Dunn
Trevor Dunn is currently playing in various projects under the direction of John Zorn (Nova Quartet, Dreamers, Electric Masada, Aleph Trio). The Nels Cline Singers, Curtis Hasselbring’s New Mellow Edwards, Melvins Lite, Endangered Blood, Tomahawk, The Darius Jones Quartet & Erik Friedlander’s Bonebridge. I still have plans for my own bands: trio-convulsant, PROOF Readers and MadLove; and I continue to write music for independent films, practice long tones, pine over Daisy Lowe and drink shitty beer in heavy metal saloons.
Kenny Wollesen
Drummer Kenny Wolleson performed on over 30 recordings during the 1990s and, as the decade progressed, gained increasing renown as a musician of astonishing versatility, skill, and ingenuity. He has recorded and toured with all kinds of musicians, from Tom Waits (Wolleson performs on Waits’ 1993 collaboration with William S. Burroughs, Black Rider), to Sean Lennon, to Ron Sexsmith (Wolleson performs on his second album, Other Songs).

A founding member of the New Klezmer Trio, Wollesen is also all over N.Y.C.’s downtown jazz and avant-garde musicians’ recordings, and has been so active as to tour with Bill Frisell and Myra Melford in the same month. — Joslyn Layne


Cyro Baptista
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Cyro Baptista arrived in the U.S. in 1980 with a scholarship to the Woodstock-based Creative Music Studio. During the ’70- and ’80's, the Woodstock-based Creative Music Studio was considered the premier study center for contemporary creative music and is credited as the birthplace of world jazz – the improvisational and compositional expansion of the world’s musical traditions. Founded in 1971 by Karl Berger, Ingrid Sertso and Ornette Coleman, CMS brought together leading innovators in the jazz and world music communities. After his time at CMS, Cyro moved to New York City where he started his career on the streets of lower Manhattan. He has since emerged as one of the premier percussionists in the country. Coinciding with the rise in the public’s interest of world music, Cyro has recorded and toured with some of music’s most popular names. His mastery of Brazilian percussion and his numerous homemade instruments, have catapulted him into world renown. In short, if you’ve listened to the radio in the past 30 years, chances are you have heard Cyro’s caxixi, pandeiro or one of his (now famous) homemade instruments.

Cyro’s credits read like a “Who’s Who” of modern music. He has toured extensively with Yo-Yo Ma’s Brazil Project, Trey Anastasio’s Band (of Phish), John Zorn’s Electric Masada, Herbie Hancock’s Grammy award-winning “Gershwin’s World”, Sting and Paul Simon’s “Rhythm of the Saints”. Other artists Cyro Baptista has performed and recorded with include David Byrne, Kathleen Battle, Gato Barbieri, Dr. John, Brian Eno, Robert Palmer, Melissa Etheridge, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn, James Taylor, Carly Simon, Michael Tilson Thomas, Daniel Barenboin, Bobby McFerrin, Wynton Marsalis, Medeski Martin & Wood, Spyro Gyra, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, and Santana.


Joey Baron
Drummer Joey Baron was born into a Jewish working class family in Richmond, Virginia. He is largely self-taught by means of watching others play and listening to recordings, radio and television. His early influences ran the gamut from Ed Sullivan show guests, to “The Wild Wild West” television show theme to records by Art Blakey, Ray Charles, Booker T. & the M.G.’s, James Brown, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix.
