Top 2 from October 15, 2013

The Hudson River Valley from Albany to NYC

Playing John Zorn's Volac - Book of Angels, Vol. 8, from his seemingly infinite part Masada project. (Upon seeing an album called “the Unknown Masada” my reaction was “there's basically more Masada than any one person could know, that I now know about this one as opposed to about 50 other discs”) Anyway, a great performance in a tiny space at the corner of Avenue C and 2nd street. A diagonal front right on the corner with the name in tiny writing on a glass door with a black curtain on the inside, took me about 15 minutes to figure out that was the place (only when the audience from the first show exited) Rachsiel is the top 1 of the set - some amazing pizzicato playing bringing an unusual dimension to the cello.
