Here’s a real YouTube gem. Frank Zappa’s final performance in 1992 in Frankfurt. Having spent the last couple months watching/videographing Erin Rader and Max Friedman’s practice for last Saturday’s Cascade Theatre benefit performance, this dance became even more impressive to me. Take a look, and turn it up.
“G-Spot Tornado.” Nice work, orchestra and dancers. I have a far better appreciation for the difficulty of that complex dance routine now.
Frank Zappa was brilliant and irreplaceable. The brief Coda, and the ovation at the conclusion hits hard. Thanks, Frank.
