John Zorn - Spillane

...and now for something completely different... or not. I have been trying to introduce new elements to the blog, so here's a start.

The title track is a rambling jazz track with all the cool elements of noir thrown in, while side two sports a very cool blues track and and a track with the unparalleled Kronos.

The whole mess is gonna take more time typing in players than it takes to listen to, so you will have to take my word for it that this is 50 minutes (or so) worth your effort.

Did I mention Kronos on the final track?
