Friday Frank: Ravel's Bolero*; 1988, Barcelona

Frank Zappa, this time wearing his conductor's hat, leads a stunningly talented crew of musicians. Ravel's sexy masterpiece sounds brassy and muscular--just better than ever, I think; Maestro is clearly in his dictatorial element and loving it; Ike Willis wears his Beer 'n Titties t-shirt.

For a few blessed minutes at least, all is right with the world. Enjoy.

And Bon Weekend, everyone.

Also at Cogitamus.

*Yes, I've posted FZ performing Bolero before, a while back; this rendition of it is even more wonderful. Promise.
