Pat got a four-LP set from John Zorn's Tzadik label and thought an episode catching up with recent events in the Zorniverse might be a good idea. Mike thought the title of this episode was a good idea. Brace yourselves. All four albums feature Zorn the composer, while only one features Zorn the alto saxophonist and only one features a demonically possessed Muppet on vocals. Pop matters reveals that Mike still doesn't like Joanna Newsom and still has mixed feelings about Frank Zappa.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
