Zappa, Frank - Waka/Jawaka (2012 remaster)

SKU 28-ZPRCZR3848.2
"Analog transfer by Joe Travers 2012. Mastered by Doug Sax, The Mastering Lab, 2012."

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 totally 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).
