Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American t musician, composer, and bandleader. His work is characterized by nonconformity, free-form improvisation, sound experiments, musical virtuosity, and satire of American culture
I’m thrilled that Frank Zappa will finally be going back out on tour playing his most well-known music as well as some rare and unheard material, said Ahmet Zappa, co-Trustee of the Zappa Family Trust. We can’t wait to bring his creative work back to the stage with the musicians he loved to play with, such as Steve Vai, Ian Underwood, Adrian Belew, Arthur Barrow, Vinnie Colaiuta, Scott Thunes, Mike Keneally, Denny Walley, Warren Cuccurullo and Napoleon Murphy Brock among others who are committed to being part of this epic endeavor
Frank Zappa - The Grand Wazoo (1972). Zappa once said of this and its predecessor, Waka/Jawaka: They sold a few copies in Scandinavia. Although the cover depicts a band – Zappa, Patrick O’Hearn, Terry Bozzio and Eddie Jobson – only Zappa and Bozzio actually play on the album. Zoot Allures is a pretty stripped-down, straight-ahead rock album, flawed but with some amazing high points like the sensuous The Torture Never Stops and the guitar instrumentals Black Napkins and the title track. There’s a lot of mediocre parody, like opener Wind Up Working In A Gas Station and the blast at the Travolta craze of the time, Disco Boy.
The last album that guitarist Frank Zappa worked on prior to his death in December 1993 will finally be released this June
Frank Zappa began his recording career in the early 1960s knocking out copycat surf-music singles for fly-by-night labels in Los Angeles, where he lived for most of his life, latterly in the city’s fabled rock-star hangout, Laurel Canyon. Another album with an unusually narrow musical-focus – in this case, rock and jazz fusion – Hot Rats is the first instrumental masterpiece in Zappa’s discography. It was recorded shortly after he broke up the original Mothers of Invention and while he was producing Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica. Only one track on the instrumental album Jazz from Hell features a band, the rest being performed by Zappa on multi-tracked Synclavier.
