TRANK ZAPPA GRAPPA IN VARESE? (TZGIV) “Play Zappa Live In Waremme 08”

sold out!

“Insightful arrangements provide a glimpse of the Zappa genius.”

“Of particular interest are the instrumental takes on “Mother People” and “Mom and Dad”. Sax replaces the vocal lines and some improvisational liberties arise in the middle sections… this crew mixes a nice blend of slavish recreation with its own stylish improvisations. “The Gumbo Variations”, driven by double bass, is a standout track as the boys alternate strutting their stuff. This offering should delight fans of Zappa.” (Warren Barker, Progression magazine, Autumn 2010)
