2012 CD release.
Inspired by the spiritual mythology of William Blake, A Vision in Blakelight is the latest in Zorn’s continuing series of 21st century mystical works. With a cinematic sweep reminiscent of his best film scores the music is alternately romantic, ominous, ecstatic, driving and meditative. Featuring the Nova quartet augmented by harp and percussion—and the charismatic Jack Huston reciting from Blake’s Jerusalem on one mysterious track—this suite of ten instrumental miniatures references jazz, classical, easy listening, film music and minimalism. A lovely and varied suite reflecting the humanistic philosophy of the immortal visionary William Blake with a dramatic and brilliant lyricism.
