He is as important to our time as Beethoven was to his day.

Zorn, the classical composer, jazz saxophonist, composer of XYZ genres of music (including the popular Naked City and Painkiller bands). Doesn't get much better than that.

From his earliest projects to his current ones, he's covered so much ground and holds such a strong artistic integrity the whole way through.

The recent "Songs For Petra" album is also really fun and beautiful.

Back in the day I had (nearly) his entire discog, and a couple extra records from his Tzadik label. Absolutely prolific and so varied without ever losing that little screaming edge that makes his compositions so god damn interesting and fun.

Love this man.

The irony is that he is so prolific that whatever 'back in the day' was, he's released like 80 since then lol.

He's released three coming up this year already, and that's just up till April. All the way into December last year he was still releasing stuff.
That month he released "The Turner Diaries" which are classical etudes for solo piano.
In November he released another classical album, one called "Azoth".

This site is a good resource for basic cateloging of his projects:

Oh f u c k I'm so happy this website exists, I had no idea. Thanks!

Yeah my back in the day was the 2000s and he's released a lot more since then. The man is a machine.

I really doubt any one individual could have an impact on the infinitely wide array of musical practices in our globalized and decentralized world that would be comparable in any meaningful sense to the impact of Beethoven on the rigidly codified musical practice of central Europe in the early 19th century.

The analogy is simply not helpful in trying to understand the significance of any artist working today and what that artist's project or trajectory are all about.

I agree. It really isn’t helpful to place creative artists on this kind of faux worship pedestal during their lifetime. When a small number of elements concerning the quantity of their output are artificially highlighted as to make them a larger universal creative force than they really are, it tends to look ridiculous even to those who may actually admire their work.
