John Zorn's Masada project has been published in some of the most exciting new Jewish music of the past century. Spawning classic modern bands like the Masada Quartet, Bar Kokhba, Electric Masada, The Masada String Trio and Joe Sandman, Secret Chiefs 3, Pat Metheny, Cyro Baptista, Erik Friedlander, David Krakauer, Medeski, Martin and Wood, Cracow Klezmer Band and countless others, the music of Masada has become a touchstone for New Jewish Music in the 21st century. In the first decade of Masada (1993-2003) the repertory was focused on Masada Book One. 2004 saw the birth of Masada's book Two-The Book of Angels, which has been filmed over 30 different ensembles across 32 cds. For the third decade of the Masada dynasty Zorn completes his collection of 613 compositions with Masada Book Three-The Book Beriah. Masada family across three nights. Outrageous, exhilarating, intense, lilting, soulful, beautiful, cathartic, twisted, driving, lyrical, complex, insane, and unforgettable, this is the Masada Legacy. Instrumental music from rock to jazz to world music to the outer realms of madness! The Book Beriah at Porgy & Bess wants to be the unforgettable moment of New Jewish Music that runs the gamut of emotions, influences and styles. (John Zorn)
