What is John Zorn, the famous composer and impresario behind the avant-garde Radical Jewish Culture movement, doing releasing a Christmas album, complete with traditional carols (jazzed up, but only slightly) and even a couple original compositions? Jake Marmer explains today in Tablet Magazine, with reference both to Zorn’s and his own life experiences, that this is in keeping with Zorn’s project of looking to his own past, being radical, and making everything, as Zorn puts it, “more what it is.”
