On This Day
- Thomas Dippel announces Jean-Luc Ponty & His Band will be playing Zappanale 2010!
- Paul Carr publishes a new paper on FZ and The Big Note concept.

Jean-Luc Ponty in 1972
Rare footage of Jean-Luc Ponty from 1972. Performing his only original composition from his album King Kong: Jean-Luc Ponty Plays the Music of Frank Zappa. While the album version goes 7:12 in length, this version (it is surmised that this recording is from a German TV Archive – can anyone confirm this?) goes 10:13. Though recorded under the Ponty name, King Kong is largely considered a Zappa record by fans.
