Following the remarkable success of his solo debut, Adult Themes (Tzadik 7015), Mike Patton, best known as the vocalist of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, steps out as a composer.
Patton's extended composition, Pranzo Oltranzista: Musica da Ravola per Cinque (Banquet Piece for Five Players) is inspired by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti's Futurist Cookbook (1932). Performed by an all-star ensemble, Pranzo Oltranzista magically transports the listener to a surreal ambient world of the unexpected.
In addition to his rock career, Mr. Patton has worked with the Rova Saxophone Quartet, Bob Ostertag, the Kronos Quartet, David Shea, Bill Laswell and John Zorn.
