All throughout September 2003, saxophonist John Zorn held concerts to commemorate his 50th year of being and his long, prolific career. These concerts were all recorded live, and portions of the best concerts are all one by one being distributed by Zorn's label Tzadik. Masada is Zorn's output for his compositions, which are unique to Zorn's style, and also borrow from Klezmer traditions.

In my opinion, Electric Masada is the best release out of this wonderful series. Zorn plays alongside some top-notch musicians, including Marc Ribot (guitar), Trevor Dunn (bass), Ikue Mori (electronics), and three (!) percussionists and a keyboardist. All of them work together works that range from Zorn's intricate Masada compositions to the free improvisation that Zorn is best known for. The energy is incredible as are the solos contributed by each member.
