Songs For Petra
A continuation of the popular Song Project that toured in 2013 for Zorn’s 60th birthday concerts, Songs For Petra focuses on the inimitable vocals of Petra Haden. Accompanied by an all-star band led by lyricist Jesse Harris and guitar virtuoso Julian Lage, they present some classic Zorn compositions and several new songs written expressly for Petra! A fabulous new project performed by a group of modern musical masters.

Gnostic Trio
One of Zorn’s most touching and lovely projects, the Gnostic Trio features the inimitable guitarist Bill Frisell surrounded by harp and vibraphone. Music of the Angels!

One of Zorn’s most beloved and unique 21st century ensembles, the Gnostic Trio features the distinctive guitar of Bill Frisell, the vibraphone of Kenny Wollesen and the ethereal harp stylings of Carol Emanuel. The sounds are soulful and heavenly and for this, their seventh cd together, they perform 9 tunes from the Book Beri’ah, the last book of music completing the Masada legacy. Frisell’s magical sonorities dance around harp and vibraphone creating a heavenly improvisational counterpoint. Truly music of the angels, Netzach is a gem.
