Zappa, Frank - Waka /Jawaka CD

SKU 28-ZPRCZR3848.2
After Frank was thrown from the stage in London and broke his leg very badly, he was stuck in a wheelchair and couldn't tour for about 9 months. As Frank was always working, he decided to indulge himself in two larger-scale projects that wouldn't be practical to tour with, but were personally interesting to him.
Waka/Jawaka was the first of the two, and for it he assembled a 'small big-band' and did something along the lines of 'big band Mothers'. It's a pretty great album overall, and it's fun to hear real straight-ahead jazzers with monster jazz chops playing this music (and, I assume, having a blast doing so).
