I'm a fan of Steve Vai, and I've heard some of the songs he has played with Frank Zappa, and I liked them, so I would like to be introduced in his music. If anyone could tell me wich are Frank's best albums, because his discography is too large to choose.<br>Thanx. <br><br>Jaime, Spain.

If you like Steve Vai, you must like instrumental music so I'd recommend "Make a Jazz Noise Here" (lots of awesome FZ composition) then "Shut Up -n-Play Your Guitar" (lots of awesome FZ improvisation).  For an introduction to his vocal stuff, get "Overnite Sensation."<br><br>If you wanna hear the best of Steve w/FZ, the track Moggio from "Man From Utopia" is about as good as stunt guitar gets.  I'm not crazy about the album as a whole, but Moggio alone is worth the price of admission.  Steve also does some incredible stuff on Jazz Discharge Party Hats on the same record; if you like "So Happy" from Flex-Able, you'll love it.<br><br>VCF <br><br>VCF
