Composer, guitarist, singer, and bandleader Frank Zappa was a singular musical figure during a performing and recording career that lasted from the 1960s to the '90s. His disparate influences included doo wop music and avant-garde classical music; although he led groups that could be called rock & roll bands for much of his career, he used them to create a hybrid style that bordered on ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Still The Best Band You Never Heard 11 Nov 2005
By Sordel TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Few recording artists with a career of any length manage to go out on a definite high, but Zappa managed to buck the trend. Towards the end of his life he supervised a programme of re-releases, put the final polish on some unreleased material and, as here, released live recordings that demonstrated the awesome machine that the Frank Zappa touring band had become by 1988.
This for me is Zappa's greatest live recording, featuring a twelve-piece big band of musicians playing out of their skins on music that only genuine virtuosos could tackle. Zappa himself joked that the fact that the instrumentalists were good wouldn't make any difference to the sort of people who would want to listen to his music, but when a band is this tight, you just have to sit up and take notice. The sax solos on "Sinister Footwear" are blistering: "jazz noises", maybe, but you don't have to be a jazz fan to love them. The brass is rampant throughout the album, but there's also plenty of space for the bass, drums and, of course, Zappa's own electric guitar to shine.
The fact that most of these tracks are instrumental means that you both gain and lose by not having Zappa's lyrics. If you're primarily interested in Zappa the satirist, this album may sound too sterile to you. If, on the other hand, you are one of the many classical and jazz fans drawn to the complexity and wit of Zappa's melodies and harmonies, this is a firm recommendation.
Zappa's reputation is on the up again, with a number of tribute bands and classical ensembles taking up the considerable challenge of exploring music that often pushes the boundaries of performability. No matter how well they do, this is one set of performances that it will be virtually impossible to emulate.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Master's Voice 6 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
A true masterpiece that mixes rock with jazz with fusion with classical with avant garde. The album is more instrumental than most of his other albums and therefore not many of the tracks will make it to "Zappa's Greatest Hits" though I do believe this is his finest and musically most challenging album and one that bears listening to again and again and and again....

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful album -don't miss this 25 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I highly recommend this -it's a beautifully collated group of live recordings by big-band and Frank;some marvelous musicianship as well as much musical humor
Eric Satie was often called "un blaguer" -a wise guy-and Frank is no less,in both senses of the word.
He interjects both Stravinsky and Bartok into the works -just because he can !
There's some great extended playing,on pieces like When Yuppies Go To Hell
,Big Swifty and King Kong and some wonderful individual playing by the horns.
And Frank's guitar playing has never sounded better-both original and fitting.

I find this album immensely satisfying both as a jazz fan and as pure enjoyment

5.0 out of 5 stars An oustanding piece of work 7 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
I borrowed this CD from a local library, expecting the usual mix of (mostly) odd, bizarre and hard-to-get-into tracks with the odd gem from FZ ... but this is outstanding stuff.
There is hardly a duff track on here, and it demands repeated listenings - and still sounds fresh upon each one.
Highly recommended.
Frank ... wherever you are ... Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous 15 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
One of the criminal aspects of Frank Zappa's lack of superstardom on an Elton John level is that most people will never get to hear this album. The band is perfect, the sound quality is perfect, the music is perfect. Even the computer samples fit in well with the quality of the music. The highlights being 'When Yuppies Go To Hell', 'Dupree's Paradise', 'Big Swifty' and 'Cruising For Burgers'
