From the official Tzadik site:

Continuing in the tradition of his popular album The Gift, Zorn again combines a lifetime of musical passions—world music, movie soundtracks, jazz, minimalism, exotica, funk, surf rock and more—to create a vibrant and multifaceted album of instrumental fairy tales. Masterfully performed by the all-star players from Electric Masada, The Dreamers is a project of breathtaking variety and will attract listeners of all backgrounds and ages. Bathed in a lush package created by the acclaimed artist and exclusive Tzadik graphic designer Chippy, and accompanied by a sheet of collectable character stickers, The Dreamersis one of Zorn’s most beautiful and appealing projects. Seductive lyricism, hypnotic grooves, catchy hooks and romantic moods from this genre-bashing master of surprise.

From the official Tzadik site:

Another volume of FilmWorks is always a cause for celebration—Zorn’s freewheeling soundtrack music is among the most listener-friendly in his entire catalog. This installment presents a charming and lyrical score created for renowned Russian animator Dimitri Geller’s delightful animated parable The Rain Horse. Beautifully performed by the dynamic trio of Erik Friedlander, Rob Burger and Greg Cohen, these eleven cues are some of Zorn’s most appealing music for film. Passionate and poignant chamber music for another masterpiece by one of the world’s great animators.
