Looks like they've added a bunch of avant-jazz labels: HatHut, ESP, Tzadik. I may have to start listening to that kind of stuff again.

Anyone want to help me with some Tzadik recommendations? I basically stopped paying attention around 2000.

Every time I see this thread bumped I expect a link to a news article saying they've finally folded.

hmm, I've been disappointed by recent Tzadik albums I've tried. Anything written by or featuring Zorn in the last 15 years seems to be an aimless mess.
I like these from after 2000:
Kayo Dot, Choirs of the Eye, 2003Wadada Leo Smith, Lake Biwa, 2004the Scott Johnson reissue, John SomebodyAyelet Rose Gottlieb, Mayim Rabim, 2006

I don't have any interest in the no-wave improvisational klezmer punk side of the label, but I have dipped into their New Music offerings. IIRC, I liked:
Maryanne Amacher - Sound Characters, Sound Characters vol. 2Alvin Curran - Animal Behavior, Theme Park, Lost Marbles, Shofar RagsArnold Dreyblatt - Animal Magnetism, Who's Who In Central & East Europe 1933Annie Gosfield - Burnt Ivory and Loose Wires, Lost Signals and Drifting Satellites, Almost Truths And Open DeceptionsLukas Ligeti - Mystery System, Afrikan MachineryLois Vierk - River Beneath the RiverThe Cracow Klezmer Band - Balan: Book of Angels Vol.5, Remembrance
The latter group could be described as Penderecki does klezmer, and may get me into the genre yet.

The Morton Feldman Patterns in a Chromatic Field on tzadik is fantastic.
Also, emusic has reverted to certain albums which are one long track being priced super cheap. I just got two Feldman chamber music albums on Bridge Records for like a buck each.
