 Notes & Reviews
 
Great album, versatile, sharp and fun.
- Retief Van Wyk, 10/14/2010, South Africa

In 1993 John Zorn began composing and performing his 208 tunes that now comprise what is known as the Masada songbook. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this, his most popular musical project, John Zorn has organized a series of CD, featuring his most illustrious colleagues performing their own unique arrangements of these classics of modern Jewish music. This first release contains three guitarists whose styles are as varies as the compositions they perform. From the singular brilliance of Marc Ribot, the lush sonorities of Bill Frisell, to the Orchestral virtuosity of Tim Sparks, Masada Guitars is a glittering tribute, lovingly executed by three of the most original guitarist in the world.
