John Zorn: The Hermetic Organ Volume 3 - John Zorn, Solo Organ Improvisation, St. Paul's Hall, Huddersfield - Tzadik Records, 2015

Volume three of John Zorn's brilliant organ improvisations was recently requested, so here it is in all its majesty and curiosity. I am very fond of this disc as well, however due to time restraints I am simply going to post the music without any background so as to try to post a few more things for once.

A brief blurb from Tzadik:

Zorn’s organ improvisations are transcendent, inspiring, outrageous and ecstatic experiences, offering a direct line to the workings of his rich compositional imagination. In this performance, recorded live at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in 2013, Zorn creates a shockingly dramatic world of bizarre sonorities, spectral experimentation, hypnotic moods and stirring melodies. From first throbbing moment to last this third volume documenting Zorn’s legendary organ recitals on majestic instruments around the world presents the power of organ music at its most surprising, extreme and sublime.

Enjoy ye organ fiends and adventurous travelers
