Little Dots is the sequel to 2005’s Imaginary Diseases. It features additional hand-picked selections from the Maestro himself of the 10-piece ‘Petit Wazoo’ tour of late 1972. Although FZ worked on this material during different time periods throughout the 70s and 80s, nothing was ever officially released. Now we get the chance to hear more from this horn-driven ensemble, featuring mammoth improvisations and unreleased compositions.Read More

Little Dots contains more recordings of the under-documented Petit Wazoo Ensemble, which toured at the end of 1972 (previously heard officially on Imaginary Diseases). Again, the sound isn’t pristine here, but it’s quite listenable. The show starts with a very early version of “Cosmik Debris,” but other than that and “Rollo” the material is all new (mostly due to being largely improvised). “Little Dots, Pt. 1” is a previously unreleased piece that features bassist Dave Parlato and drummer Jim Gordon in dialogue, joined by FZ on guitar about halfway though.Read More

The Crux of the Biscuit is the fourth installment of the Project/Object series that offers a peek behind the curtain at the making of FZ’s albums, in this case, Apostrophe (‘). If you don’t know Apostrophe (‘), there’s really no context for this material. The first quarter or so of the album is an early sequence of side one, all with 1973 mixes by Kerry McNabb. Read More

Composer, guitarist, singer, and bandleader Frank Zappa was a singular musical figure during a performing and recording career that lasted from the 1960s to the ’90s. His disparate influences included doo wop music and avant-garde classical music; although he led groups that could be called rock & roll bands for much of his career, he used them to create a hybrid style that bordered on jazz and complicated, modern serious music, sometimes inducing orchestras to play along.Read More
