His hundreds of album credits include legendary work with the great Tom Waits (Rain Dogs, Frank’s Wild Years) as well as with Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, John Mellencamp, Soloman Burke, Neko Case, Diana Krall, Beth Orton, Marianne Faithful, Arto Lindsay, Caetano Veloso, Laurie Anderson, McCoy Tyner, The Jazz Passengers, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Cibo Matto, Allen Ginsburg, Madeleine Peyroux, Allen Toussaint, Norah Jones, The Black Keys, Jeff Bridges, Jolie Holland, Elton John/Leon Russell and many others. Additionally, Ribot has recorded extensively under his own name and with projects including Ceramic Dog and Los Cubanos Positzos. He is a frequent collaborator with both T Bone Burnett and John Zorn.

Jennifer Reeves’ SHADOWS CHOOSE THEIR HORRORS is the dark and melodic diary of a necromancer living on the edge between the mortal world and the realm of lost souls. Sinister forces surround Madame G (Winsome Brown) as she tries to bond with her favorite undead. Using magic and ritual to give them new life and pleasures, Madame G is shocked by the devastating outcome. This camp and experimental reworking of early silent horror was inspired by both the un-staged Aaron Copland ballet Grohg, and the film that stirred the young Copland to write his ballet, Nosferatu.

SHADOWS CHOOSE THEIR HORRORS was originally created for a live performance of Grohg by the American Symphony Orchestra at Bard Music Festival, with Leon Botstein conducting.
