ZORRO documents themes and highlights from the Ensemble's live score to The Mark of Zorro (1920) starring Douglas Fairbanks. The score nimbly navigates quick cutting action and drama while fleshing out political and social overtones underlying the swashbuckling adventure.
ZORRO is performed by composer Jack Curtis Dubowsky (conductor), Alicia Byer (clarinet), R. Scott Dibble (piano), Angelo Metz (guitars), Slam Nobles (percussion), Jeff L. Schwartz (double bass) and Charles Sharp (bass clarinet, flute, cornet, electronics).
ZORRO was recorded by legendary engineer Earle Mankey known for his work with The Beach Boys, Elton John, Concrete Blond, Sparks and many more. The album was recorded live and mixed in two days by Mankey.
