Absolute Zappa

On Thursday 1 April 2004 7.30pm at Barbican Centre, the electro-acoustic Absolute Ensemble is giving a concert entitled “ABSOLUTE ZAPPA“. The 20-piece band lend their own distinctive jazz-inspired style to heart-pumping remixes, reinventions, re-imaginings and rearrangements of Zappa originals. Special guests include Zappa’s original sideman, Napoleon Murphy Brock and Mike Keneally plus hip-hop turntablists the X-ecutioners and jazz musician Django Bates. (thanks SOFA!)

One thought on “Absolute Zappa”

  1. In case some of ya don’t know, some of this is being broadcast LIVE on BBC Radio 3. Radio Times, the UK’s TV/radio listings paper, says that JAZZ FROM HELL will be performed live. Non UK residents may wish to know that the concert can be streamed live at 19.30GMT from the BBC’s website. Furthermore, for those of you at work/school/in bed at that time, the BBC offers an “on demand” radio service, where the concert will be available as a stream for the following seven days.
