Biography

Bar Kokhba is the Bar Kokhba Sextet playing the Masada Book Two. So far, they’ve only released one album under this moniker - Lucifer: Book of Angels Volume 10. About Lucifer, Tzadik says: “Lucifer is the first studio recording in over ten years by the most popular and best selling Masada ensemble ever. Here they play better and tighter than ever, blending Sephardic and Ashkenazi sonorities with latin, surf, world music and more in an inimitable easy listening instrumental style. Lyrical and soulful, this is some of the most exciting and enjoyable chamber music you are ever likely to hear. Lucifer is yet another brilliant release from Zorn’s Book of Angels — one of the most consistent and compelling collections on Tzadik.”

    This should be separated from "Bar Kokhba Sextet".

    totally disagree InASafePlace. They're basically covers. You wouldn't scrobble a death metal cover of some gay pop song under Lady Gaga, you'd scrobble it under Death Faeces or whatever.... yeah?

    But the arrangements are done by the performers!

    John Zorn. Anything by performers Electric Masada, Bar Kokhba, Secret Chiefs 3 etc etc playing Zorn songs should be scrobbled under John Zorn, just like classical music. Artist is the composer.

    Pretty sure it's under John Zorn. I will just go with both names, regarding the other issue.

    Even Tzadik shows two bands: Bar Kokhba and Bar Kokhba Sextet, Lucifer corresponding to the first one and The Circle Maker and 50th Birthday-something to the other one. How to deal with this? And btw, is Bar Kokhba (the album) by Bar Kokhba or John Zorn (speaking of tags)?

    Vote for Bar Kokhba Sextet as the correct artist name.

    I think Lucifer is great, but still way behind Xaphan! IMO, of course
