Frank Zappa - Orchestral Favorites (2002) Retail CD
Don't be put off by the terrible cover art for this album (it was released by Warners without Zappa's permission or control), there are some great tunes here. It's a little on the short side (34 minutes) but the density and intensity of the music make up for that. "Strictly Genteel" is a new version of the tune from the end of 200 Motels, and it sounds beautiful. "Pedro's Dowry" is a pointillistic modern classical piece, as is "Naval Aviation in Art". "Duke of Prunes" is an orchestral version of the tune from Absolutely Free, and it includes a great feedback guitar solo from Zappa. The highlightmore… is the 13 minute "Bogus Pomp" which contains music from several older Zappa pieces rolled into one big fanfare. Also worth mentioning is the unusual instrumentation on a few of these tracks. As well as the orchestra, we have (electric) guitar, bass and drums on a few tracks, a harmonica, and what sounds like a violin through a wah-wah pedal. Has to be heard to be believed!
