Zorn 60 in Poland

A full-length video of the Zorn 60 band performing in Warsaw a couple of years ago. The all-star ensemble was put together for a series of recordings and concerts called "Song Project" that happened to coincide with John Zorn's 60th birthday. Excellent playing by everyone, but especially Marc Ribot, John Medeski, and Mike Patton. Zorn conducts animatedly, as usual. A surprise standout for me is the vocalist Sofia Rei, who comes in on the second track.
