Two must-see quartets on the inaugural night of the double bills proposed by Zorn. It was to this group of the guitarist Mary Halvorson that the saxophonist commissioned the magnificent final volume of The Book of Angels series, a set of compositions based on “Jewish scales”. It is this musical imagery, evocative of klezmer and Middle Eastern music, that unites the evening’s two concerts, with the classic Masada quartet being the fundamental vehicle for the exploration of a point of contact between its Jewish origins and the jazz language that Zorn has been developing since the 1990s.
