Masada - Stolas - Book Of Angels, Vol. 12 (Tzadik, 2009) ****

After the original Masada series, John Zorn started with the Masada Song Book Two, the Book Of Angels. A series which is possibly among his best projects. The Radical Jewish Music series becomes a little repetitive, the Anniversary series was not always of the same inspired quality, but the Book of Angels is among my favorites for the variations in approach and some of the superb surprises and high quality. This is the 12th album, with the real Masada band, but with some changes. Zorn himself plays on only one track, and is replaced by no one less than Joe Lovano on sax, with Uri Caine on piano, Dave Douglas on trumpet, Greg Cohen on bass and Joey Barron on drums. This slightly altered line-up also changes the music. The compositions themselves do not vary from the known music with the usual klezmer angle, but the style is now mainstream, and hence much more accessible than anything Zorn has ever done. Nice, sweet and of course with the expected high quality delivery. Douglas is stellar.

I am not a specialist in angels, so I checked the internet to verify where all these angels keep coming from, wondering whether Zorn kept inventing names, what their characteristics are, and what their number is. From the list below, and the overview of all Book of Angels albums, you can see that
- some of the Masada song book angels do not figure in the list I found
- the Masada song book has not yet reached a third of the existing angels.

Stolas, the one that is the title for this album, is again a fallen angel, a commander of twenty-six legions of demons and he teaches astronomy (?!). The same angel may have several small changes in its names, depending on the tradition (jewish, christian, muslim). Stolas, is also Solas as listed below. Volac is the same as Valac in the list below, etc.

So, like it or not, there is potentially still a lot to come if Zorn wants to cover the whole list with songs. Also interesting to notice is that the songbook luckily covers as many, if not more, of the fallen angels, than of the good-natured ones. I have some natural sympathy for the fallen angels.

I love the Book of Angels series, too... Stolas is the best one since Xaphan, if you ask me.

my Xaphan review:

Thanks for the posting of the lists of Angels... interesting stuff people make up.

It's your space, but the listing of angels stikes me as a waste of space and effort that could be better devoted to some of the new music coming out.

Many thanks for that list! I actually compiled a list and possible future candidates, but having your list would have been the easier route.
