From John Zorn:
VINYL SERIES TO HELP OFFSET THE LOSS FROM THE PLEDGE DISASTER

Hi everyone. The deal to salvage Pledge has fallen through and it looks like we will NOT be paid. Below are the details of our vinyl series that we hope will help offset the huge financial damage from this disaster. Please help us by purchasing the collection — and spread the word to your friends! The LPs are a limited edition so put your preorder in as soon as you can—it should be up and running now at this address:

JZ VINYL COLLECTION
A new limited edition vinyl series of select releases out of the Zorn catalog! Personally chosen by Zorn for release on vinyl, the LPs are beautifully made and packaged in the original artwork. A limited number of copies of each release, signed by John Zorn, will be made available for sale. Collectable and rare, purchase them all before they disappear!

MASADA—THE BEST OF SANHEDRIN

John Zorn: Sax
Dave Douglas: Trumpet
Greg Cohen: Bass
Joey Baron: Drums

The first Masada music ever presented on vinyl! John Zorn, Dave Douglas, Greg Cohen and Joey Baron performing inspiring and influential music that is truly a joy to hear. This best-of collection contains seven masterful performances by the original quartet recorded in the first few years of its reign as one of the most exciting small jazz ensembles ever. This is a classic release in the tradition of classic collectable jazz LPs, with a warm sound and 3 or 4 tracks to each side.

NOVE CANTICI PER FRANCESCO D’ASSISI

Julian Lage: Guitar
Bill Frisell: Guitar
Gyan Riley: Guitar

A beautiful new suite of John Zorn music performed by the all-star guitar trio of Bill Frisell, Julian Lage and Gyan Riley! Inspired by the life and thought of the beloved spiritual figure Saint Francis of Assisi these ten lovely compositions sound beautiful on vinyl. An essential release that will appeal to perhaps the widest audience Zorn has ever had, this is truly music of the Angels.

THE LAST JUDGMENT

Mike Patton: Voice
John Medeski: Organ
Trevor Dunn: Bass
Joey Baron: Drums

Featuring vocalist extraordinaire Mike Patton, organ virtuoso John Medeski, bass wizard Trevor Dunn and drum master Joey Baron, the Moonchild project was an all-star group that combined heavy rock with jazz improvisation and classical compositional complexity. The climax of their eight years together (2006–2014) was their final recording The Last Judgment, now presented on vinyl for the very first time. The music is intense, dramatic and lyrical, with plenty of melodic hooks, harmonic twists and textural insanity. Patton sings, howls, screams and intones with the passion and power of a man possessed!

ALHAMBRA LOVE SONGS

Rob Burger: Piano
Greg Cohen: Bass
Ben Perowsky: Drums

One of the most lovely piano trios ever, Alhambra Love Songs is Zorn’s lyrical ode to the San Francisco/Bay Area and the wonderful artists who have made it their home. Touching on the easy listening/jazz/funk of Vince Guaraldi, Ahmad Jamal and Ramsey Lewis, the music is scored for the remarkable piano trio of Rob Burger, Greg Cohen and Ben Perowsky. Evocative and endlessly listenable, this is one of the most charming projects in the entire Zorn catalog—and sounds beautiful on vinyl!

Why That New Record Might Not Play On Your Turntable

Our Frich Warwick contributed to this story, it’s a great read:

If you look at Discogs reviews, or Amazon reviews, or, even Vinyl Me, Please reviews of certain new record releases, you’ll sometimes find a common complaint: “This record doesn’t play right on my turntable. It skips all over the place.”

He will be taking time off to focus on treatment and recovery.
