Naked City: Naked City. There's not much I can say about this album that will do it justice. The band is the brainchild of avant-garde composer John Zorn, and encompasses free jazz, hardcore, experimental, country, lounge, film score, cartoons, surf, classical and much more. Many of the tracks flip between genres every few measures and feature frequent tempo changes. On first listen, the album might sound utterly bonkers, but the virtuosity and sheer scope mean I never grow tired of hearing it.
