John Zorn's Book Of Angels Volume 10 - Lucifer - Bar Kokhbar Sextet (USA 2008)

Masada Book Two

A quick word on this before I end the day. This must definitely be my favourite volume of the series both before and after this. The classic Bar Kokhba Sextet is just fantastic, especially Marc Ribot's Guitaring. The music is utterly stunning, full of great melody and fabulous playing with its swinging Klezmer style chamber jazz. One of Zorn's best albums ever. Rating 5+/5.

This is the album that I put on when I don't know what to listen to. It is always the right thing to listen to. Every mood and occasion :-)

If you haven't got the Bar Kokhba 50th Birthday triple CD set, that one is (IMO) an absolute must have. I hate lists and favorites and stuff but if you put a gun to my head that might just be my favorite album of all time...

I do have that 50th Birthday set although I am probably more familiar with The original 2 CD Bar Kokhbar Release. Those sets have impressed me no end also and as i say this particular Book two set continues on with the stunning music.

P.S. Isn't it funny how we sometimes can't figure out what to listen to. I have something like 3000 CDs and yet I get times where I stand looking at the shelfs, scratching ny nuts and thinking I don't have anything i want to listen too, I need more music.:-)
