John Zorn 2010 Announcement

When people ask me why I do so many projects and am so “prolific,” I should just point them to Tzadik, Zorn’s record label, which made this amazing announcement last week:


2010 will be a landmark year for John Zorn who promises 12 new CD releases-one every month! Included will be new music from The Dreamers, Moonchild and Alhambra, 3 new releases in The Book of Angels series, a major new studio composition dedicated to the Korean-American writer Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, a classical release featuring his acclaimed violin concerto Contes des Fées, the DVD release of his opera with Richard Foreman ASTRONOME, a ripping improvised duo recording with Fred Frith and undoubtedly several surprises. Most of the recordings are already completed and the release schedule set, so keep your eyes and ears open and expect a new Zorn release every 4th Tuesday of the month in 2010!

Now THAT’S prolific. True, we have some gems in the fridge for next year at Greenleaf as well. John’s an inspiration.
