When John Zorn and Bill Laswell meet, all hell breaks loose. Both consummate improvisers, Zorn, a saxophonist, experimental composer and impresario, has built a reputation as a driving force behind the downtown scene, while Laswell, a prolific bassist and producer who has appeared on more than 3,000 recordings, knows how to explore the downtown region of the fretboard. They are joined by free jazz drummer Milford Graves. Presented as part of the Zorn at 60 celebration, commemorating Zorn's sixtieth birthday year, the evening promises to show that despite his age, the avant-garde progenitor remains the enfant terrible he has always been.
