David Ocker writes in to point out his “longest blog post ever” — about performing FZ’s orchestra music. An interesting read, coming from a man who obviously knows what he’s talking about; with an appreciative tip of the hat to the recent Hungarian 100% Zappa concert.
I really like it when someone speaks about something that is really close to him. And I’m also glad when it has something to do with a fine concert that I saw.
…the results were as good or better than the studio LSO recordings which Frank edited repeatedly. But these live unedited recordings were light years beyond what the LSO produced at the Barbican in 1984. Very encouraging.
David Ocker about the 100% Zappa concert. Nice text. Thank you!
