It seems every time that I hear Project Object perform, they just get better and better all the time. Check out the following three videos below for yourself. The first, an excerpt from “Cosmik Debris” featuring Ray White and Ike Willis and Project Object performing at Martyr’s in Chicago on January 2nd, 2010. The second, has them opening the show with “Zoot Allures” at The Met in Pawtucket on October 30th, 2010. The last video, features Ed Mann, Don Preston and Ike Willis performing “Filthy Habits” at Papa Pete’s in Kalamazoo, MI, on February 6th, 2009.
If you are in the neighborhood, I’d check out these exceptionally talented Zappa alumni in action. Definitely not to be missed.
