John Zorn - At The Gates Of Paradise (USA 2011)

The John Zorn Discography.

Another in the Mysticism series with some of the usual great musos who play John's music. A lovely and very accessible set of contemporary jazz. As with all John's music, there is plenty happening, with plenty of subtle stylistic changes within his compositions and although this sounds quite similar to most of the releases in this series as well as some of his other series, I find that I never tire of this wonderful music and Zorn is good enough to keep each release interesting and enjoyable. Medeski's piano is again a stand out for me on this set and overall this is another excellent album. Rating 4/5.
