Jean Luc PontyKing Kong – Jean Luc Ponty Plays The Music Of Frank Zappa ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Trippy electric fusion from the west coast – a record that features Ponty, who was working with Zappa at the time, playing a set of electric jazz takes on Zappa tunes – with lots of added help from George Duke, who was also working with Zappa too! The set's almost a "birth of fusion" one – with Zappa arrangements that are clearly in a jazz-rock mode – and lots of electric bass, electric piano, and electric violin in the set. Tracks are long, and riff-heavy – and other players include Ernie Watts, Wilton Felder, Buell Neidlinger, and Ian Underwood. Titles include "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Music For Electric Violin & Low Budget Orchestra", "King Kong", and "Twenty Small Cigars". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank ZappaChunga's Revenge ... LP
Bizarre/Reprise, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $18.99
One of the most jamming Zappa albums from the early days – a set that's still got some of Frank's complicated musical leanings in play – but which features interpretation by a smoking group who no doubt helped the great one reach a much larger audience! George Duke plays lots of organ and heavy keyboards – and other players include Aynsley Dunbar on drums, giving the whole thing a great punch at the bottom – plus Mothers luminary Ian Underwood on more keyboards and electric alto sax, Jeff Simmons and Max Bennett on bass, and Frank himself on some mighty amazing guitar! Titles include "The Clap", "Chunga's Revenge", "Tell Me You Love Me", "The Nancy & Mary Music", "Twenty Small Cigars", and "Would You Go All The Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a partially split bottom seam.)

Frank ZappaZappa In New York ... LP
DiscReet, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Frank Zappa live in the 70s – working with a surprisingly hip large ensemble, with all the sharp changes and unusual moments of his classic studio albums! Like some of Zappa's other concert performances, there's an approach that steps a few years back – clearly to please the group coming to hear their favorites, but in a way that also offers up a nice sharpening-up of the music too – especially given that the whole thing's happening live on stage! There's some great jazz help here – horns from The Brecker Brothers, Lou Marini, Ronnie Cuber, and Tom Malone – plus wonderful vibes from Dave Samuels and keyboards from Eddie Jobson – and even a bit of narration from Don Pardo. Titles include "I'm The Slime", "Titties & Beer", "Cruisin For Burgers", "The Illinois Enema Bandit", "Punky's Whips", "Big Leg Emma", and "Sofa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Censored version.)

✨✧ Frank Zappa & The MothersOver-Nite Sensation ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $12.99
One of Frank Zappa's biggest-selling albums of the early 70s and it's also one of his best ever! Over-Nite Sensation finds Zappa's leftfield weirdness and sly social satire at play within adventurous, but accessible arrangements. It's got some early fusiony rock bits paired with heavy drums and muscular rock riffs – and it's a hell of a great sound! The songs themselves are sharp here, too. If forced to make a list of favorite Zappa songs, it'd certainly include "Camarillo Brillo", which kicks this record off – and other titles include "I'm The Slime", "Montana", "Dinah-Moe Humm", "Zomby Woof", and "Dirty Love". Features keyboards from George Duke and violin from Jean Luc Ponty – plus horns by Ian Underwood, Sal Marquez, Tom Fowler and Bruce Fowler – plus percussion by Ruth Underwood and amazing drums by Ralph Humphrey.

Frank Zappa/MothersRoxy & Elsewhere ... CD
Barking Pumpkin, 1974. Used ... $6.99
"Mostly" live genius from Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention – recorded at The Roxy with some studio additions – and the players include George Duke, Tom Fowler, Ruth Underwood, Walt Fowler, Ralph Humphrey and the other great players from this peak period! It's astonishing stuff – and as strong of a mix of the tightly rock-centric and exploratory/hard fusiony sides of Zappa as you could hope for – shoot, even the stage banter is priceless! Includes "Penguin In Bondage", "Pygmy Twylyte", "Village Of The Sun", "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?", "More Trouble Everyday" and "Be-Bop Tango (Of The Old Jazzmen's Church)" and more. CD

✨✧ Jean-Luc Ponty with George DukeJean-Luc Ponty Experience With The George Duke Trio ... CD
Liberty (Japan), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A better album than you'd expect – without any of the too-familiar modes of either players' later albums! At the time of this set, George Duke and Jean-Luc Ponty were both playing with Frank Zappa – but they're breaking out of the hippie weirdness here to get a bit more serious – working through some long, extended modal grooves that rank with the best MPS work by either player – especially their early recordings! Duke's on electric piano, ringing out in a weird spacey sound, and Ponty's violin is mostly restrained, used to cast waves of sound over the top of the tracks, in a way that works well with Duke's soulful resonant approach. Titles include "Foosh", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Starlight Starbright". CD

✨✧ Das Saxophonorchester Frankfurt/Frankfurt SaxophDas Saxophonorchester Frankfurt/Frankfurt Saxophone Orchestra – Live ... LP
SAJ/FMP (Germany), 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pretty fierce stuff from this German all-sax group that includes Alfred Harth as the major writer, arranger, and soloist. The record has a fair number of short tracks, but they have an incredibly dense and loud sound – and redd players include Max Eipp, Thomas Conrad, Chris Becker, Gerhard Gugel, Florian Nikel, Robert Sprun, Ole Schmidt, Michael Kloss, and others. Titles include "Theme Fur Orpheus", "Halloween Fantasies", "Unisono", "Harth Rock" – and versions of Trane's "Giant Steps" and Zappa's "Sofa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)
