Excerpt Dweezil Zappa ZPZ Blog
30 December 2008
DOWNLOAD UPDATE DETAILS
"Anyone who is curious about the quality can hear an audio stream of
"Bamboozled By Love" from Chicago 10-17-08 on nugs.net right now."


Happy New Year!

DZ

Ray White's voice is golden as any blues singer ever recorded.
Like a fine red wine it only gets better with age.
As I have said for years ZPZ sounds as good as any touring FZ ensemble.
In addition these recordings are on par in engineering fidelity to any 100% live Zappa ever released.
While only a stream the source, mixing and overall engineering is superb.

This arrangement reminds me of FZs 1979 through 1988 bands thrown in a blender.
The dynamics are just so vivid performed and engineered above and beyond FZs demanding standards.

In the opening section the vocals have the clarity and soul on par with anything I have ever heard,
by any vocalist in the history of live music.
All those old blues singers are under neath the lawn lawn lawn and Ray just keeps raising the bar.
The orchestration of the horns is off the hook. The rhythm section is pronounced with
the fine remnants of Vinnisms along with Jamie Kimie 's superb rendition of the Denny Walley aluminum finger.

As the guitar solo begins layers of octave divider are ever clear.
This is only one small glimpse of DZs rig and performance capabilities.
Oh I'll just stop for people gotta use their own ears on this,
including the rest of this arrangement that I have not talked of for it is that good..................

Given DZs tenacity for achieving engineering nirvana,
yes it's a quality and or state of being,
I expect my Halloween show to be produced along the lines of
where the ZPZ Halloween Download will definitively be a show
I will listen to as much as any other in the Zappa catalog.

Saying it for years doesn't make it more true.

I find ZPZ very good, but inferior to any band that included Frank Zappa. Hence, ZPZ is inferior to any FZ ensemble. Gee, Dr. Watson, it cannot be so hard to realize!

Not bad Gary..........sounds a bit like a John Lee Hooker show I once attended. (In a blues kinda way).

Thanks for the post Trendy ; as for comparisons, I don't get into that. It just takes up to much enjoyment out of music.
