Gems From the Vault & Fresh Tracks Too!

Yay!!! Gems from the Vault! Just when you think you've heard everything here are a few things no one beyond Gail and the Vaultmeister have played in the UMRK.

More Trouble with a new vamp out -- sheer pleasure to hear something "new" from Frank himself.
The Gorgeous Inca solo is just that -- gorgeous precious and sweet.
Ancient Armaments is another gem from Halloween.
And America the Beautiful closes a show in a way only Frank can.

Contributions from Diva and the rest of the family put the emphasis on "for no reason at all..." why not? And it's nice to put Melanie out front after all her work behind the scenes slaving away in the UMRK.

A fresh recording of 20 Small Cigars produced by the vaultmeister, Joe Travers, is a delight, and a reminder of how great a jazz composer Frank was.

Lacksadaisial, a Travers composition featuring ZPZ players Scheila Gonzalez and Pete Griffin, simply rocks my socks off.

Worth every cent, with a little something for everyone. Happy Birthday Frank!

Hapi Birfdai Frank!

I love you and miss you. This release is yet another exampler/sampler of the wonder and marvel that Frank's music holds for all. If you got ears ... you better listen!

Viva Zappa!

Gorgeous Inca and Ancient Armaments - both give me goosebumps! I also love the fun tunes. Absolutely phenomenol playing (not surprising!) by Joe Travers, Scheila Gonzalez, and Pete Griffin. Hey ZFT - thanks for releasing these tunes! More, More, More!!!!
