4 stars So this was my first contact with Mr. Zappa. What you get here is an almost instrumental album with a great big band sound. You woun't find this much guitar solos as you get on other Zappa releases but you will hear a lot of wind instruments, maybe more than on other Zappa albums, whereas Zappa always uses a lot of them. The overall picture is very jazzy and even without vocals really funny like many of Zappa's albums are. The main part of the album is for sure the 13 minute long title track "The grand Wazoo" wich I found very interesting and it stays it, so you can listen to it several times and it never gets boring. The big band sound is great and fits good on this album and especially on this track. I think that this one is a good Zappa album and is by all means a good one to start with Zappa, it worked good for me...even if this album is said to be a bit different from others I think it represents Zappa's style adequate...my favorite besides "Hot Rats"
