Masonic Zen

This album starts with an execution. The three fellowcraft masons who murdered the 3rd Degree Master Mason, Hiram Abif, are each executed by decree of King Solomon.

Coyote was attending weekly meetings of his Masonic lodge and performing flute, (as Masonic organist), or acting as the lodge's Assistant Secretary. Engrossed in freemasonry, Coyote again transformed the songs of his life into a rock opera about King Solomon.

During the recording of this album, Coyote, aka Richard Del Connor, discovered the "Masonic Kung Fu" form he had been teaching since 1984. Its secrets and pantomimes were exposed once Coyote became the first 3rd Degree Master Mason to teach this Kung Fu Form as "Lian Bu" or "Ling Po."

With the divorce of his family and financial hardships since 2010, this album was left "almost finished" until 2015 when Coyote recorded the flute solos to complete the album recording.
