Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ED PALERMO BIG BAND

Eddy Loves Frank

2009-07-21

To put it in a nutshell, this is Ed Palermo's big band covering the compositions of Frank Zappa. After performing the music of Zappa for some fifteen years, this sixteen-piece band knows what it's doing. This isn't note-for-note covers. The band puts its own stamp on the music, while keeping it recognizable. This is Zappa for the big band jazz fan. It also satisfies this Zappa fan. I'm not all that into covers or tribute bands, but this band plays the complicated stuff well and with respect for the composer. Give it a listen, Zappa fan or not, you might just like it.
