Zappa’s catalog is so extensive, there is truly no other American composer like him. I’m always finding new gems and nuggets he’s left behind and still finding new ways to appreciate his standards. I got to see him perform in Providence around 1985 (may have been 1984) and he was just amazing. Volatile, brilliant, demanding, just unwilling to settle for anything but an “all in” performance.
