Many folks think of Frank Zappa as a quirky and strange songwriter…well he is. But he was also an amazing composer. Here is an instrumental piece called Be-Bop Tango. The mad scientist conductor leads The Mothers of Invention in this amazing piece. A violin with a whaa pedal…nuff said.
The best line up I can find is: Frank on guitar, Bruce Fowler on Trombone, Napoleon Murphy on Tenor, Patrick O’Hern or Tom Fowler on Bass, and Ruth Underwood on the Xylophone.
