4.0 excellentLambda | October 13th 15

Four diverse tracks, each a sonic representation of a different work by 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud. "Illuminations" is an interesting (if overlong) track: the piano part is fully notated, whereas the rhythm section is improvised. "Conneries" is one of Zorn's infamous file card pieces-- it features the French actor/director Mathieu Almaric yelling/speaking Rimbaud's words over Zorn's eclectic instrumentation. "A Season in Hell" is a noise track, and "Bateau ivre" is a fascinating, endlessly shifting modern classical piece. Overall, Rimbaud is excellent. 4.0
