Frank Zappa: Son of Orange County + More Trouble Every Day (Repost)

I’m not sorry at all to repost. This performance deserves every bit of attention you can lend to it. Keep it alive as part of YOUR culture.

Mainly, as some may know, I am learning to play keyboards, and the Rhodes sound is just my favorite thing in the world. It has its place, whatever. Anyway, George Duke. George Duke. George Duke. Underappreciated. As are other artists who played with Zappa.

A real record store in the before time, in the wayback, could populate an entire aisle with Zappa records. Not only was he prolific, but he assembled crack teams of ninja starfighter musicians who had to be for real-real to make the team. And, among all of those, George Duke. George Motherfucking Duke. Learn it. Live it. Love it. He’s the man surrounded by multi-tier keyboards, looking like he’s manning his station on the bridge of the starship Zappa.
