(1978 ) Frank Zappa - Studio Tan
ZAPPA's masterpiece!!!!! A perfect mix of classical, rock and jazz music in the TV cartoon style!! Funny, but extremely complex music!! "Studio Tan" is one of the most complex music of Frank ZAPPA! The contribution of Eddie Jobson was absolutely necessary to make possible such an album! This guy is extremely talented!! Lemme take you to the beach is the most accessible song, which young kids should like! It's more than ordinary, if you listen carefully. It is a rather funny song, with addictive high frequency voice. The yodeling voice behind is EDDIE JOBSON's!!!!!! ZAPPA's guitar is quite appropriate! The revised music for low orchestra song cannot be better: lots of latino influences with the trumpet or trombone? and spanish guitar parts, all played with orchestral arrangements: WOW! "Greggary Peccary" is another chef d'oeuvre: comics music, but how complex and great! Around 20 minutes of dynamic, rythm changing music full of funny moments which only ZAPPA knows how to manage! So many instruments involved, especially percussions!! Again, classical orchestra really takes part in the music, not only as a back ground! But in my opinion, "REDUNZL" is the main reason to like Studio Tan: because it absolutely and deeply reaches the quintessence! A complex Waltz bit? Maybe, but one thing is sure: it will never be played live as well as in the studio!! There are some names behind this: Eddie Jobson, Ruth underwood and Chester Thompson! Drums, percussions and keyboards at their best! Cannot find better!! One of the best songs ever!!! Really!
