Edizione speciale e commemorativa su etichetta Tzadik di due celebri lavori dei primi anni novanta di John Zorn con Naked City: Torture Garden e Leng Tch'e, qui riuniti in unico cd (un'edizione del 1996, Black Box, già li accoglieva entrambi ma come due cd distinti). Con Zorn erano all'epoca Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith, Joey Baron e Yamatsuka Eye.

he controversial and influential Naked City Black Box couples two of Zorn's most extreme and violent creations. Torture Garden (1991) presents Naked City's intense and groundbreaking music combining free jazz, bebop, r&b, country, funk, rockabilly, surf, metal and grindcore - usually in the same song! The rare, seldom heard Leng Tch'e (1992), released only in Japan and long out-of-print features Naked City in an agonizingly slow, brutal 32-minute assault. This special 20th anniversary edition brings all the music together on one CD, accompanied by a booklet complete with artwork, photos and essays old and new.
