3.5 greatLambda | February 2nd 15

Spillane consists of a twenty-five minute long file card piece (in which Zorn writes different musical sections on cards, then arranges them, creating a series of 'sound blocks'), a two-part eighteen minute blues piece written for and featuring Albert Collins, and an avant-garde song featuring a ton of quick-cut transitions, with a Japanese narrator occasionally speaking overtop. The file card piece is fantastic, and the avant-garde song is fantastic too. However, while the blues track is decent, it is overlong. Zorn used crime writer Mickey Spillane's work as the unifying theme for these songs, hence the album title. 3.8
