Zorn, a recipient of a 2006 MacArthur "genius" grant, defies any categorization more specific than the catchall "improviser." Since his first record in 1980, he has played (to name a very few) Japanese S&M-influenced metal, bluesy hard-bop jazz, noise rock, tributes to film music and avant-garde classical.
