5 stars With Hot Rats and The Grand Wazoo (this album is the second part of the impressive album Hot Rats) it follows the line of Avant-Jazz-Fusion, this album is made up of four songs:

Big Swifty: this piece is only instrumental and combines a base of jazz with movements of big band, the great unfolding of instruments that they go from the guitar to synthesizer, although its seventeen minutes the song can become a little boring, but is worth the trouble to listen to it.

In your mouth: Here there is a blues base, this song if there are voices, the choirs of women are very good, which if it does not have is single of guitar but believe me that does not need it.

Deal It just might be to one-shot: they follow the voices in this song, the drummer really makes an excellent work. Later a fantastic solo from guitar, and it mantains a base of country and the band maintains a jazzy base simultaneously. Finishes with a base of blues and voices.

Waka/Jawaka: The song begins with a domination of the wind instruments, has a jazz base, continues with a solo of synthesizer and a other of guitar. the drummer for constant changes and has been seeming automatic, does a solo really fantastic. It finishes with a great unfolding of wind instruments and an acceleration.

This album for the lovers of the jazz is recommendable and for which he does not know Frank Zappa is a good beginning.
