For the first time in its history, the entire Jazz em Agosto programme was organised around a single musician. And the choice could hardly fall on a more striking name—both for the history of the festival and for the fundamental course of music he helped shape in the last decades: John Zorn, an artist with a highly personal style and whose activity is as prolific as it is varied. His music is so essential as a soundtrack for this time that he has become an icon of New York's artistic avant-garde, not only as a creator but also as an explorer of new territories and as someone who draws together a community that revolves around his boundless creativity.

This installment features photos from the concert series spanning July 27 to August 5 and included Marc Ribot, Mary Halvorson, Thurston Moore, Dave Douglas, Kris Davis, Craig Taborn, Ikue Mori, Trevor Dunn, and many others who appear regularly in Zorn's countless projects.
