Here is a group for us to share the songs we would like to hear Dweezil play live in DZPZ and maybe why we would like to hear them played. Lets try to be a little more original than Watermelon here folks...
Let's Move to Cleveland, at one of the Ohio shows.
.....Enigmas 1 Thru 5 from Finer Moments is an exciting number. Just the kind of Frank Zappa composition that will give Ryan Brown and various excelent musicians using percussion samples, (that can be perfpormed by Chris Norton and Scheila Gonzalez), a workout.
In some locals their are some folks that have the audacity to make jokes of how ZPZ will perform Frank Zappa works sans the physical marimba. Time and time again Frank Zappa used samples in both live and studio works. While the clouds did open up when Ruth Underwood had barcus berry's drilled into her marimba there are quite a number of performances where the sound is more important than what can or can not fit into the tour van or the orchestra budget.Some of these jokes make it look like some supposed fans are not even in the ballpark of understanding how Frank composed. Not only do I love Frank's use of percussion but I have no problem with a keyboard player or two performing multiple percussion parts. I would like to hear some of FZs compositions that focus on percussion. In speaking of ZPZ performances, surely The Black Page has had it's fair share of stage time, but I am hoping for a different kind of finer moment so to speak........
Goblin Girl for the Beacon show.
I would like to see the piece 'Pound For A Brown' make a comeback for the new tour.
A special 200 Motels mini-set including a few you've never played before. Like, Lonesome Cowboy Burt.
With all the talk of 200 Motels getting it's World Live Orchestral Premier Meanwhile on the bandstand the 70' FZ/Mothers arrangement of Would You Like A Snack/Holiday In Berlin would be a most welcomed addition to the DZPZ tour program... For those whose ears are not rehearsed in this arrangement the above request is contained within this 11/06/70 Fillmore West youtube upload.
