3.5 greatEasterInTheBatcave | June 10th 16

Avantgarde rock and jazz-rock interpretations of Zorn's compositions. Somewhat reminiscent of volume 7 (Marc Ribot's Asmodeus), but more structured and with a gimbri instead of a bass-- the gimbri (a three-string African bass) basically sounds like a regular bass, though, so its presence doesn't provide much interest. Overall, Abraxas is superbly performed (the drumming on "Maspiel", the guitar solo on "Domos") but it doesn't sustain my interest for its duration.

★★ I formerly had a soundoff for this album, but Sputnik doesn't let you delete soundoffs, so I
replaced the soundoff with this. Check out my new account, EasterInTheBatcave, for all of my
soundoffs and reviews, including the one for this album. ★★
