2 thoughts on “Slonimsky On Zappa”

  1. Slonimsky has some fantastic observations of Zappa. Especially how much of his abilities were self taught. I have often pondered the question, was Zappa such a unique iconococlast because of his rejection of standard educational practices, or because he gave himself the freedom to experiment and fail outside of what might have been considered “a proper musical education” of his time?

    In any event, the result is obvious. Genius given the freedom to roam where it pleases, will roam both in some beautiful and disturbing places.
