John Zorn - Masada 1998-08-29 Willisau

Coincidentally, I'm getting re-acquainted with Masada after many years ... prompted by some online discussion. And I'm loving it, just as I loved it back when I first heard it - you guessed it: this radio broadcast, live from Willisau, was my first ever exposure to this group's glorious music.

If you happen to be a Masada connoisseur, please help with the setlist!

This is available both as FLAC and as MP3 (320 kbs).

I think this is the complete concert
If I remember correctly, #5-11 were broadcast live

#1-4 are taken from later a later "Jazz Live" re-broadcast (that duplicated several of the other tracks)

Thanks. A strong band. I'm no Zorn expert when it gets to titling, though some must know these.
