Three great guitar players: Marc Ribot, Tim Sparks and Bill Frisell come together on one album to create beautiful guitar renditions of Masada songs. I've played this album for numerous people since I bought it and all who have heard it say it sounds "peaceful", "beautiful" or "relaxing", all of which I agree with. The song "Ravayah", played by Tim Sparks is one of the best guitar songs I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. Even though this disc is very pleasing to the ears, I would suggest that you start off with other Masada releases before you start here, that way you get a good feel of the band and their killer klezmer/jazz songs. Oh and if you get the chance to see them live....DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is one of those rare Zorn albums that satisfies everyone. It's melodic and calm enough to please the squares who listen to music that makes them feel *good.* It's also exotic enough to justify putting this in the avant-garde category. If you're the typical Zorn fan, there's just enough weirdness here to make this a must-have for your collection.
And it's a must for fans of jazz guitar. These three guys play beautifully, adding creative flourishes without losing the basic structure of each song.
Buy this one and you'll listen to it over and over. It might get a little boring after the fifth or sixth time, but you'll keep returning to it as the years go by.

Each individual piece as played by the guitarist's are small masterpieces. I don't know how much direction he gave his players but a photograph seems to put him in a elevated trancendental state of mind. I would like to see a second offering that would include Eugene Chadbourne, Nels Cline, Derek Bailey, Henry Kaiser and Marc Ducret along with the current line up. Anyway, this is deffinately a good CD to add to a jazz collection.

There's really not much that needs to be said about this album, is there? Music Zorn composed for Masada, interpreted here by Tim Sparks, Marc Ribot, and Bill Frisell. (NOT in trio format - each track features only one of the three, Frisell on seven cuts, Sparks on five, Ribot on nine -- all kinda mixed-up together, so that I haven't had a chance to figure out how I feel about each player individually; track 10 obviously jumps out as being a Bill Frisell performance, but it's the only one I've had that reaction to, really NOTICING the identity of the player -- I'm slow about such things). The Tzadik obi, or whatever those things are called when it's a non-Japanese release, talks about the music including "a nod to Fahey, Julian Bream, Segovia, Van Eps and others." That, really, is accurate to the point of making my blather redundant. Strangest thing to me is that Zorn seems to be crossing over into some sort of mainstream success with this disc; the local Virgin Records ordered 15 copies of it, when usually they MIGHT pick up one or two copies of a new Tzadik release -- many they ignore outright, tho'). And this IS very accessible, easily-listened to stuff; you could probably play it for your most unhip relatives, even people who own a Kenny G disc, and they'd like it. (People with no taste can sometimes appreciate beauty, too).Read more ›

I'm more of a guitarista than a Zorn follower. The Zorn experts know far more than I do about how this album fits into his canon of work. But as far as guitar albums are concerned, this has to be one of the most sophisticated and sublime works I've ever heard.

The recording method allows much of the process to bleed through, which places the listener in the room. This creates an intimacy that is rare for this level of playing.

It's not what I would call a friendly album. Considering its theme, it shouldn't be. It's a challenging exploration of the sonic range of acoustic and electric guitars by three of the best instrumentalists to ever play this instrument.
