Marc Ribot's contribution to Tzadik's series of interpretive film scores, Shoe String Symphonettes features music inspired by such cinematic oddities as Jacob Burkhardt's Landlord Blues and Yakov Protazanov's 1928 farce Aelita Queen of Mars. With musical themes ranging from the edgy minimalism of '50s suspense thrillers to P‚rez Prado's swanky lounge-mambo, Symphonettes features some of Ribot's most compelling work to date, both creatively augmenting the originals and sketching out cinematic spaces more or less autonomous from the films they were inspired by. Guest musicians include Greg Cohen, Andy Haas, John Zorn, Bill Ware, and Curtis Fowlkes. ~ Sean Cooper
