John Zorn

John Zorn is an American composer, record producer and multi-instrumentalist with hundreds of album credits as performer and producer across a variety of genres including jazz, hardcore, surf, soundtrack and improvised music. He incorporates diverse styles in his compositions, which he identifies as avant-garde or experimental. Zorn was described by Down Beat as "one of our most important composers". Zorn established himself within the New York City downtown music movement in the mid-1970s, performing with musicians across the sonic spectrum and developing experimental methods of composing new music. After releasing albums on several independent US and European labels, Zorn signed with Elektra Nonesuch and received wide acclaim with the release of The Big Gundown, an album reworking the compositions of Ennio Morricone, he attracted further attention worldwide with the release of Spillane in 1987 and Naked City in 1990. After spending a decade travelling between Japan and the US, he made New York his permanent base and established his own record label, Tzadik, in the mid-1990s.

Tzadik enabled Zorn to maintain independence from the mainstream music industry and ensured the continued availability of his growing catalog of recordings, allowing him to prolifically record and release new material, issuing several new albums each year, as well as promoting the work of many other musicians. Zorn has led the hardcore bands Naked City and Painkiller, the Jewish music-inspired jazz quartet Masada, composed 613 pieces as part of the three Masada songbooks that have been performed by an array of groups, composed concert music for classical ensembles and orchestras, produced music for opera, sound installations and documentary. Zorn has undertaken many tours of Europe and the Middle East performing at festivals with many other musicians and ensembles that perform his diverse output. John Zorn was born in New York City and learned piano and flute as a child, his family had diverse musical tastes: his mother, listened to classical and world music, his father, Henry Zorn, was interested in jazz, French chansons, country music, his older brother collected doo-wop, 1950s rock and roll records.

Zorn attended the United Nations International School from kindergarten to high school associating with school friends from many different cultures. He spent his teenage years exploring classical music, film music, and, "listening to The Doors and playing bass in a surf band." He acquired an interest in experimental and avant-garde music after buying a record by Mauricio Kagel in 1968 at the age of fifteen. He taught himself orchestration and counterpoint by transcribing scores and studied composition under Leonardo Balada. Zorn started playing the saxophone after discovering Anthony Braxton's album For Alto when he was studying composition at Webster College in St. Louis, where he attended classes taught by Oliver Lake. While still at Webster, he incorporated elements of free jazz, avant-garde and experimental music, film scores, performance art and the cartoon scores of Carl Stalling into his first recordings which were released as First Recordings 1973. Zorn dropped out of college and, following a stint on the West Coast, moved to Manhattan where he gave concerts in his apartment and other small NY venues, playing saxophone and a variety of reeds, duck calls and other instruments.

Zorn immersed himself in the underground art scene, assisting Jack Smith with his performances and attending plays by Richard Foreman. He founded a performance art project called the Theatre of Musical Optics in 1975 and became a major participant in the downtown music scene as a composer and producer of music that challenged the confines of any single musical genre. Zorn's early major compositions included several game pieces described as "complex systems harnessing improvisers in flexible compositional formats"; these compositions "involved strict rules, role playing, prompters with flashcards, all in the name of melding structure and improvisation in a seamless fashion". Zorn's game pieces were titled after sports, include Track & Field, Lacrosse, Curling, Hockey, Fencing and Archery, several of which were recorded and released on Eugene Chadbourne's Parachute label, becoming the first albums under Zorn's leadership, his most enduring game piece is Cobra, composed in 1984 and first released on album in 1987 and in subsequent versions in 1992, 1994 and 2002, revisited in performance many times.

In the early 1980s, Zorn was engaged in improvised performance which included "blowing duck calls in buckets of water at fringe venues" as both a solo performer and with other like-minded artists. Zorn's first solo saxophone recordings were released in two volumes as The Classic Guide to Strategy in 1983 and 1986 on the Lumina label. Zorn's early small group improvisations are documented on Locus Solus which featured Zorn with various combinations of other improvisers including Christian Marclay, Arto Lindsay, Wayne Horvitz, Ikue Mori, Anton Fier. Ganryu Island featured a series of duets by Zorn with Michihiro Sato on shamisen, which received limited release on the Yukon label in 1984. Zorn has subsequently released these recordings as CDs on Tzadik making them more available than the original vinyl pressings. Zorn's breakthrough recording was 1985's acclaimed The Big Gundown: John Zorn Plays the Music of Ennio Morricone, where Zorn offered radical arrangements of music from Ennio Morri

The Premier League is an association football league that serves as the top tier of the English football league system. The league was founded in 1992 when the clubs of the First Division decided to break away from the Football League, as a commercially independent entity that negotiated its own broadcast and sponsorship agreements. Since the 2012–13 season, a player needs to have played in a minimum of five matches for a title-winning team to qualify for a medal; this is down from the previous standard of ten matches played. At the discretion of the Premier League board, additional medals can be awarded to players who played less than five matches; this special dispensation is reserved for back-up goalkeepers and players who did not make the minimum number of appearances through injury. For the first season, players received a miniature version of the trophy rather than a medal; as of the end of the 2018–19 season, six clubs have won the title – Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea, Manchester City and Leicester City – with 508 medals awarded to 262 players.

Having won 13 Premier League championships, Manchester United have more title-winning players to their name than any other club, with 86 players awarded 247 medals.
