About the album

Gathering pieces from Lower East Siders Elliot Sharp and John Zorn, Russia’s Sofia Gubaidulina, Pakistani singer Pandit Pran Nath, and Chicago bluesman Willie Dixon, among others, “this bracing collection of short, disparate pieces admirably depicts the Kronos Quartet’s vast range” (The New York Times).
