|John Zorn chronology|
Voodoo is an album by The Sonny Clark Memorial Quartet which comprises John Zorn on alto saxophone, Wayne Horvitz on keyboards, Ray Drummond on bass and Bobby Previte on drums. The album was released in 1986 on Black Saint Records and features the compositions of hard bop pianist Sonny Clark.
The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars stating "This unusual album is an unlikely success... Zorn creates fairly boppish solos with occasional hints at more advanced improvising techniques. Worth checking out".
The Rolling Stone review by Steve Futterman said the album "brings out Zorn's anarchic tendencies... Quartet masterminds Zorn and Wayne Horvitz spit fire, never allowing this heartfelt tribute to get too reverential... Here Zorn sounds like he's having serious fun".
