I have to be honest that when I learned there would be a sequel to "The Gnostic Preludes," I thought of such a project as being very unnecessary. The initial Frisell, Emanuel, Wollesen album was an asset to the Zornian catalog but not a stand-out. While enjoyable, it wasn't remarkable enough to earn a sequel. Considering the potential of a Zornian-Frisellian collaboration, it was a bit disappointing. In contrast, "The Mysteries" is an improvement to the point that it is easy to say that newbies should skip over "The Gnostic Preludes" and shoot straight for this sophomore release. It's difficult to say why as both albums shoot for the same mark but this one somehow hits the target. For starters, Wollesen doesn't go manic on the bells. In addition, the freshman release may have been a bit too large for a minimalist project. Perhaps most importantly, Bill Frisell's beautiful guitar work finally stands out -as it should- above the harp, bells and vibes. First time around, Frisell's natural sound seemed minimized, perhaps buried under the production. This time around, his signature sound stretches out and flourishes. As peaceful and relaxing music, this is perfect for contemplative moments. The compositions, arrangements and performances are loose and light. "The Mysteries" stands as one the stronger albums in John Zorn's Mystic Series.

¨The Mysteries"is the second volume of the trio , Bill Frisell Carol Enmanuel and Kelly Wollensen. After the fantastic ""Gnostic Preludes", this album insist in the same propositions. Minimalist, modal lyricism and some poetical ambient . The results are more better than in the first album. Specially the guitar work, more eclectic and some times modern. . "The Mysteries" is part of the Mystic Series from John Zorn's book song.I think is more fresh, more nice and also more electric. For me is a very nice album with three great musicians. The musical reference came from the Ancient tradition but the music is perfect in the current context
