Meditations on the Tarot
AiR John Zorn
Various expressions, feelings and references from the mysterious Tarot world form the basis for Zorn's compositions for a dazzling piano trio.
Zorn's musical version of this world is performed by a spectacular piano trio from New York's creative downtown scene with pianist Brian Marsella, bassist Trevor Dunn and drummer Kenny Wollesen. The band interprets Zorn's suite through various expressions, from introspective elegance to terrific excursions. Beautiful, engaging, virtuoso and varied music, where nine compositions each represent their own card in the deck. The critics describe Zorn's theme as brilliant and write that the three musicians contribute to further enhancing the qualities.
Brian Marsella - piano, Trevor Dunn - bass, Kenny Wollesen - drums
