I haven't kept up with most of his stuff, aside from the Astronome group with Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn and Joey Baron, which is awesome, so it's hard for me to say whether the projects discussed here have any real merit. I asked Bruce Gallanter from Downtown Music Gallery to sell me on Masada once - "Just put on the disc you think will sell this band to me." He did (some live thing), and I still left empty-handed. But a Zorn interview is worth reading because almost never talks to writers, so check it out. Here's the link.
