John Zorn: John Zorn&
Title: John Zorn's Oiympiad - Vol. 2 Fencing 1978
Label: Tzadik
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Two extremely rare live recordings of the classic Zorn composition "Fencing" from the early days of the Downtown scene. Featuring two realizations of the piece - one recorded at Zorn's artist loft The Theatre of Musical Optics with Eugene Chadbourne, Duck Baker, and Randy Hutton on guitars - and the other at Bard College with Chadbourne, Polly Bradfield, and John Zorn, a legendary concert that took place with George Lewis, Anthony Braxton, and Roscoe Mitchell in the audience. The music is astonishing - strange sounds, odd juxtapositions, stark silences, sudden explosions, all held together by a bizarre overarching compositional logic. Featuring a 16-page booklet replete with photos, scores, and extensive notes and remembrances by Zorn, Chadbourne, Baker, and George Lewis, this is a collector's dream. Vexing and powerful sounds from the 1978 New York Underground!
