5.0 out of 5 stars Paradise in my Heart December 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Love this CD. It's beautiful and melodic, makes me happy and feeling peaceful. John Zorn can write anything. A very unique and well presented CD--beautiful playing, artwork, writing. You really get the sense that you're in a mysterious paradise--the need to discover. The choice of instrumentation is perfect. This is great to put on during a family/friend dinner since it's light, melodic, intriguing. I'm sure little kids will love it since they can hear the instruments not often used in combination like this. Highly recommended. Another fabulous CD from the master. Get this!

"At the Gates of Paradise" continues John Zorn's adventures in melody. Up there with "A Dreamers Christmas," this stands as one of Zorn's most accessible albums. The musical style is a curious combination of jazz and rock. The music is light, relaxed and often achieves a vibe that could be described as motivational or inspirational. It's easy to imagine 'The Eternals' someday being used in a film's uplifting montage. 'Song of Innocence' exudes romantic ambiance. Not only does 'A Dream of Nine Nights' swing, it proves to be one of the album's sparklers. In 'Light Forms,' a tad of avant-garde reminds us that as relaxed as all this is, it's no new age project. 'The Aeons' returns to the sort of sounds one would expect to hear at a candle lit dinner. The mood darkens with 'Liber XV.' John Medeski fills the song with a deliciously eerie church organ. 'Dance of Albion' plays more musical sunshine. In this song, the band gets to open up on a project that generally seems tightly composed. In particular, Kenny Wollesen shines on the vibes. Medeski and Woolsen's performance in 'Song of Experience' is sublime; the Latin flavored closer is a stunning highlight. Throughout the album, Joey Baron and Trevor Dunn play strong supportive roles. Some listeners may find that in the pursuit of accessibility, there is an inherent limitation on substance. Indeed, "At the Gates of Paradise" works best in the immediate background. So while there is truth in this critique, the project is as a whole written and performed with intellect. Light years away from "... Read more ›
