We also have a new addition to the band. A new keyboardist who also plays a little violin and has nice vocal range. He's only 23 and has never been on the road before... Dah-Duh- Duhnn...We're making him watch 200 Motels and Baby Snakes on a loop.

What's his name? Wouldn't you like to know. In due time my friends. I will make a special announcement about him very soon!

Since he's 23 and never been on the road before chances are that he's a complete unknown (so far). Hence, no guesses from me.

Must have been quite some job just to get that video made! Let alone play Inca Roads as well... :o
Plays keyboards, sings and edits video? Jeezz...

Fits well for ZPZ's robotic concept. What is the sense in playing like a sequencer?

Sounds a bit unfair to me, regarding this guy's ability. He is strictly performing some song parts. Imagine this human being stretching and exercising his full creative capabilities (adding his eyebrows to the music). Great addition to any Zappaning effort...

The Chris Norton Inca and Black Page auditions, while mechanical, were what was asked for and I think most would be hard pressed to top that. Looking forward to seeing ZPZ with dedicated keys again, and hearing this guy solo. Well done. Congrats Chris Norton.

I'm sad that I'm getting married and this important time falls at the same time as dwezilla, zpz in hampton casino on 2nd, and Nateva fest. Couldn't convince the new mrs to change the wedding and honeymoon dates for zpz. I would have loved to attend dwezilla with my bari sax and do this 'music camp'. Great idea.

Get to the northeast for nateva. I think zpz will steal the show with frank's music.

That was great, but I wish he had done the amazing keyboard solo. Will see him along with the rest of the band June 14th here in Seattle!!

Tom Grose did some very good audition tapes as well. Pure piano renditions, which I kind of liked: Hear here, e.g.,
