Creamcheese (Ian Underwood plays a variety of alto saxophone low-register phrases, simulating farts under the dialogue)<br>Third Movement:Zappa Guitar Solo.<br>Fourth Movement : Zappa speak slowly: "F a r t".(A Big zappa Laugh)Then, it's time to Underwood electric sax solo.<br>Fifth Movement: Zappa simulate a fart with your mouth.Don preston makes the coda on grand piano.<br>

"Sure," said Frank. "We recorded this thing last night. I found some violins in a closet and I gave them to three of the guys. None of them had ever played a violin before. They were making all these weird sounds on them, and then in the middle I got them to add some farts. It's a concerto for farts and violins."
