After releasing two albums of original material, Bonfires of Sao Joao (2006) and Light A Candle (2009), the time was ripe for Forró in the Dark to reconvene and try something out of the box; a cover record of the famous American avant-garde composer, arranger, producer, saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist John Zorn. Zorn worked with the band to hand pick the material, composed two new pieces for inclusion on the album, and will release it on his cutting edge record label TZADIK in July 2015. Producer Jesse Harris utilized Refosco’s Bushwick, Brooklyn studio for the majority of the recording, and special guests include Brazilian piano legend Marcos Valle (a dream come true for longtime fan Zorn), bassist Rea Mochiach, accordionist Vitor Gonçalvez, and vocalist Sofia Rei.
The Django opens for small plates and crafted cocktails at 7pm Wednesday- Saturday. Live music 8pm-Late. Reservations encouraged.
