John Zorn 60th Birthday
How many musicians' careers can be said to have spanned cartoon music, klezmer and extreme metal? None as important as composer and multi-instrumentalist John Zorn, whose 60th birthday is marked in this programme. Improvised music has been a major part of Zorn's musical life, absorbing these sounds and more in long-running groups such as Masada, who feature as part of this celebration with a performance from the Jazz on 3 vaults.
