The American jazz master John Zorn – leading man of the New York avant-garde scene – has written some three hundred bagatelles. Officially, a ‘bagatelle’ is a ‘a short unpretentious instrumental composition’, but John Zorn would not be John Zorn, if he didn’t want his to be delectably complex compositions. Curious? Don’t go looking for a recording of previous performances: Zorn forbids ‘m! The only way to hear the unique compositions is in person.
At Gent Jazz Festival, John Zorn will perform over five hours of his bagatelles with an impressive number of renowned jazz musicians in no less than fourteen different formations. Among them: Gyan Riley & Julian Lage, Brian Marsella Trio, Ikue Mori and John Medeski Trio.
