The Chicago Jazz Orchestra performance last night with Ernie Watts was un-fucking-real! They killed it! I could go on and on.... Sinister Footwear 2nd Movement alone! Fuuuuuuuuck!

Yep, great show. I still haven't gone through the pix I took, but I will eventually. I wish I could hear big-band Zappa more often. So many of these pieces cannot be performed by a smaller ensemble, rock band OR an orchestra. Here's the setlist:

1. Intros
2. Peaches
3. Echidna (played through twice, I believe)
4. Blessed Relief (feedback back and forth between electric violin and guitar into an Ernie Watts solo)
5. Eat That Question --> Black Napkins
6. Zappa Talk (blablabla)
7. Big Swifty (great double-shaker solo by the percussionist)

Intermission

8. Black Page (Very pedestrian imo)
9. Waka (Al Dimeola-style guitar solo)
10. Sinister, 2nd Mvt
11. 20 Small Cigars, mellow with a bass solo
12. Grand Wazoo

Encore
13. Sofa

Awesome - thanks for the setlist Arkay! I saw that they had a nice high-end digital recorder on stage. Wonder if they recorded off the board too?
(Echidna was "standard length" and also went directly into "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?")
I can't remember which track they did with that Stravinsky interlude ('88 tour arrangement).... Waka, was it?

Finally got around to going through the pix from the Grand Wazoo show. They were taken on my phone, so not great...

Here's most of the band. There is a percussionist and keyboardist not shown on the left...
Image

As well as the violinist...
Image

Here's a closeup of his violiny thingy...
Image
The violinist, Mark Wood, ran most of the show as far as talk between tunes etc... but shit was he corny! I felt like I was watching a show in Branson or Dollywood or some such haunt of the glad-to-be-here professional musician every time he spoke. He could play, but he should never talk on stage unless its for Senior Citizens on vacation.

Here's the real star of the show soloing...
Image

And another shot...
Image

And his horn...
Image

Plus I got a few shots of the dots, here's one suitably marred to keep me from being banned, hahaha

Sweet! Thanks for the pics, Arkay! I'm *still* reeling from the show - what a performance!
Funny what you said about the violinists' MC skills. Did he look like Alice Cooper's stunt double to you too? :mrgreen:

Here Come The Mummies are a 10-12 piece funk/r&b band based out of Nashville. Word 'round the campfire is that they are all professional musicians who have contracts with different recording companies and thus causing contract disputes with the record lables involved. To get around this issue they've each adopted an alias as well as wearing the disguise of a mummy. They are a funny and talented band from what I've seen on Youtube.

Current members:
Mummy Cass - Guitar, Lead vocals: Mummy Cass(annova)
Java Mummy - Percussion, Vocals: Java (born 1974 B.C. as J Mummy Love)
Eddie Mummy - Drums, Vocals
Mummy Spaz - Keyboards
K.W. Tut - Bass, Vocals: K.W. 'Big Bomb' Tut
Mummy Rah - Tenor Sax
The Flu - Baritone Sax
Teste Verde - Trumpet
Ramses Mummy - Bass
Bucking Blanco - Trumpet
Midnight Mummy - Baritone Sax
The Pole-Bass

I see what ya mean, but to me he kept reminding me of the magician from the 70s, Doug Henning. Maybe he doesn't totally look like him, but it was enough to make me keep feeling like he was about to say "Its Maaaaaaaagggic!"

Haha - nice! Doug Henning was all about the overbite though. This guy had the off-stage Alice Cooper mannerisms down along with the look. :wink:
