Frank's stuff has performed last night by a local jazz ensemble here in CLE. They did selections from The Grand Wazoo, Waka-Jawaka, and Roxy & Elsewhere. It was part of the annual Tri-C Jazzfest, and I certainly hope it will be a mainstay from now on. The crowd was very enthusiastic and , of course, diversified. There were two special guests performing-- Ernie Watts(Cletus-Alreetus) he was fantasic! And Mark Wood from Trans-Siberian Express Orchestra, who has been a Zappa enthusiast since he was knee-high. All in all it was great to hear jazz musicians attempt the complexities of FZ's music.

The name of the group is the Jack Schantz Jazz Unit. I got the impression that they normally don't do FZ's material. They are a local group here in Cleveland, in fact I went to Comm. College with the bass player, he wrote the arrangements for the concert. But I'm not aware of any CD's they might have.
