Album : “Circle Maker” (Tzadik , 1998).

The Allmusic review by Joslyn Layne awarded the album 5 stars stating “Zorn skeptics will find the superb and elegant music on The Circle Maker surprisingly stable and accessible… All of these musicians are accomplished in jazz and improvised music, and have performed extensively in world and/or classical settings as well. The Circle Maker is a very necessary recording for all appreciators of chamber jazz, new Jewish music, or any of these stellar musicians”.

Thomas Theodor Büttner says:

I confess I do not know anything about Jewish mysticism as far as the title “Gevurah” is
concerned. The beauty of this piece of music is kind of mystic in itself and does not need a reference to be heartfelt. What is truly amazing about these seven minutes is the way these men play together in utmost concentration and harmony and joy.

An interpretation of the Torah, that actually might be useful if applied to the correct vibrational centres. For instance, I would recommend this if you aren't feeling "earthed".

Love the whole piece. Can't underestimate the effect that Cyro Baptista's percussion has on this piece.  It is unifying, yet makes it feel like it may go off the tracks at any moment.  what genius this group exudes.
