John Zorn’s Masada w/ Secret Chiefs 3 & more @ Symphony Space (pics)

John Zorn‘s Masada aims to “put Ornette Coleman and the Jewish scales together” and he’s been writing Masada material for about 25 years now, with 613 compositions as part of the Masada collection. On April 12 at Symphony Space, Zorn held a special concert to celebrate the release of “The Book of Beriah,” the third and final book in the tome. It featured three of groups that are part of the extended Masada family: Zion80 who played a series of works titled “Hod,” Secret Chiefs 3, who performed “Malkhut” and Banquet of the Spirits who performed “Yesod.” Pictures from that show are in the gallery above.

In other Zorn news, Zorn’s club The Stone is up and running at its new The New School home where Secret Chiefs 3 will play a residency in August.
