John Zorn's Masada
March 9 & 10, 2007
New York, NY -- Jazz at Lincoln Center is proud to present Cecil Taylor and John Zorn as they bring their respective ensembles to the Rose Theater in Frederick P. Rose Hall, home to Jazz at Lincoln Center, on March 9 and 10 at 8pm.
Tickets are $30, $50, $75, $100, $120 and can be purchased at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office on Broadway at 60th Street, by calling CenterCharge at (212) 721-6500.
Cecil Taylor: New AHA 3 is led by the avant-garde pioneer who has recently reunited with long-time associate, bassist Henry Grimes and is joined by the dynamic Pheeroan AkLaff on drums. Mr. Taylor's long career has spanned music from the mainstream to the experimental, performing with John Coltrane, Max Roach and the leading exponents of creative improvised music, and he is known for his inspired solo piano recitals.
John Zorn created Masada in 1994, achieving a unique sound by combining elements of klezmer, Eastern and Middle Eastern music with jazz, avant-garde, rock and classical to produce a body of work that defies academic categories. Since then, Masada has had many incarnations, but the ensemble performing in Rose Theater is the original quartet, consisting of Mr. Zorn (alto saxophone), Dave Douglas (trumpet), Greg Cohen (bass) and Joey Baron (drums).
