John Zorn: Simulacrum (feat. John Medeski: organ, Matt Hollenberg: guitar, Kenny Grohowski: drums)



You might have gathered that I'm a fan of John Zorn, and, with more significance to this forum, John Medeski, so when the two collaborate, I'm going to be paying attention. Medeski played B3 on the last two albums by Zorn's Moonchild project, and brought a kind-of gothic prog vibe to that band that made 2014's The Last Judgement one of my favorite Zorn releases of recent memory. On this record, Medeski is joined by guitarist Matt Hollenberg of the Philadelphia doom metal band Cleric, and drummer Kenny Grohowski of NYC's Abraxas, playing a set of Zorn compositions. This album moves even further into the prog-metal zone than Moonchild, with some ridiculously complicated and heavy tunes. Some moments sound like outtakes from early Tony Williams Lifetime, others remind me of Steamboat Switzerland or Elephant9. If, like me, you felt that the last few MMW albums were good but kind of safe, this album is a great place to hear Medeski going to some new places. Great stuff, but not for the faint-hearted.

I've been on a serious Soulive kick lately. Made a radio station in Spotify and have really been enjoying the results.

In some ordering:

Aretha Franklin/30 Greatest Hits
Chaka Khan/Chaka
Duke Ellington/Back To Back
Ella Fitzgerald/Ella & Louis
Elvis Presley/His Hand in Mine
Supertramp/Crime Of The Century (Remastered)
The Crusaders/Street Life

All in pristine 96 or 192 kHz .flac, 24 bit (from HDTracks). Highly recommended! And this time: no oppressive comments about dithering, Dolby, erroneous re-mastering, etc, nope, these are all cool. Straight on the big monitoring (usually with a medium quality upsampling to my 384 high quality (DIY) DA converter: very good.

I just picked up a Chris Joss album... "Little Nature"

It's very interesting instrumental music. Great for TV shows and movie soundtracks, with a lot of EP.
