Newsgroups: rec.music.bluenote,alt.music.alternative From: proussel@pdx144.NoSubdomain.NoDomain (Patrice Roussel) Subject: Re: A Zorn Discography! Message-ID: <1993May4.205440.13345@ichips.intel.com> Organization: MD6 Date: Tue, 4 May 1993 20:54:40 GMT Lines: 1314 This is a first draft of the discography of John Zorn. Records and tapes have been listed by chronological order for edition (and not recording). The following records and tapes are listed: * records and tapes by John Zorn and/or his bands, * records and tapes featuring John Zorn, * records containing composition(s) by John Zorn, * records containing arrangment(s) by John Zorn; the following ones are not listed (I think this would deserve a special section): * records produced by John Zorn (with the exception of Rodan by Michihiro Sato), * records which include samples of Zorn's music (except when explicitely mentionned, like with Alfred Harth and Bob Ostertag), * records having Zorn as a technical or musical consultant * records with liner notes by John Zorn; though arguable, I omitted most of the time the name of the com- positions (not a very DC (discographicaly correct) choice, I agree); also, you won't find anything on extra material like (maybe in a near future ?): * books, * magazines, * interviews, * concerts, * videos, * tee-shirts (even if Shimmy has some very interesting ones !). It goes without saying that I would really appreciate any com- ments, corrections and extra informations which could improve the quality of this discography. Specially, if people could send me: * missing records and tapes, * wrong references (on dates, musicians, etc), * extra references (for vinyl, CD, or different pressings); for example, I am looking for informations on the following records: * TRIO: Zorn, Bradfield, Chadbourne (Ictus, 1979) * EXPERIMENTAL PERFORMANCE: John Zorn, Takayanagi (Japanese ?) * CYNICAL HYSTERIE HOUR: ??? (Eva) * THE ART OF BEAUTIFUL BUTLING: Frith, Zorn, Sovetskoe (1stRec) * OCTOBER MEETING 87 VOL. 1 & 2: ??? (Bimhuis 1 & 2) * UNDERTOW: ??? (Enemy 107) * REPLICANT WALK: Friction (Enemy 109) * RADIO, VOL. 1 & 2: Naked City (Avant 3 & 5) * ABSINTHE: Naked City (Avant 4) * LO FLUX TUBE: Old (Earache) * POSSESSION: God (Virgin) (many of these references are listed in Ed Price's John Zorn discography).
