National Bird follows the dramatic journey of three whistleblowers who are determined to break the silence around one of the most controversial current affairs issues of our time: the secret U.S. drone war. At the center of the film are three U.S. military veterans. Plagued by guilt over participating in the killing of faceless people in foreign countries, they decide to speak out publicly, despite the possible consequences. Their stories take dramatic turns, leading one of the protagonists to Afghanistan where she learns about a horrendous incident.

Jazz / Avant-garde Jazz / Experimental / Heavy Metal / Prog Rock / Art Rock / World Music

The fourth CD in a 12-month period by Zorn’s most powerful new ensemble presents nine genre-busting compositions mixing jazz, metal, classical, world music and more. This time their trademark sound is augmented by the ringing tones of Kenny Wollesen’s vibraphone to create their wildest, most insane CD to date. Juxtaposing complex atonal lines, driving vamps, heavy metal riffs, improvisational madness, shredding solos and moments of profound lyricism, The Painted Bird is a surreal and expressive new world in sound. Moonchild meets Nova Express!

Jazz Vocals | MP3 320 kbps | 52:21 min | ~123 Mb
Label: Tru-Nu | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 2016

Liner notes by Dave Gelly: The merest glance at the titles and composers of these twelve songs should tell you that Sue McCreeth is not your average jazz singer: pieces by popular songwriters (Ray Noble and Noel Coward), jazz composers (Stan Tracey and Alison Rayner), European composers of the early 20th century (Frederick Delius and Ralph Vaughan Williams) – and, of course, by Sue herself. And the remarkable thing about it is that, when she sings them, they all seem to belong together. She sings in a warm, intimate voice and a deceptively simple style.
