Tzadik

Founded by John Zorn

(New York, United States) Created in 1995, the Tzadik music label specializes in avant-garde, experimental music and Radical Jewish Culture, avant-garde Jewish music.

"As the jewish people continue to grow into the 21st century, they carry their culture along with them. Tradition, history and the past have always played a strong role in the life of the jews but it is also important to think about the future. As we grow as a people, it seems natural that our culture should grow along with us. Just as jazz music has progressed from dixieland to free jazz and beyond in a few short decades, and classical music went from tonality to chromaticism, noise and back again, it has occurred to me that the same kind of growth should be possible�and is perhaps essential�for jewish music. Questions arose, as did the need to address them. The cds on the Radical Jewish Culture series is a first attempt at addressing some of these issues." John Zorn
