In the summer of 1999 Chris Comer conducted a rare radio interview with
composer and saxophonist John Zorn. Right off the bat the pair discussed
the Masada jazz quartet and book of compositions, then the conversation
led to other performers Zorn has collaborated and performed with,
including Derek Bailey. John Zorn's chamber music compositions are
a featured topic of this interview. Specific attention given to Zorn's
string quartets and an in-depth discussion of his composition for
string quartet, Momento Mori. This is an engaging, fun and relaxed
conversation with an artist of the highest caliber.
