5 stars Frank Zappa had many albums where his music changed immensely. On this one he jettisoned the baggage in his band, and hire some top notch players to perform some big band versions of his brand of fusion (he continued this with the also excellent "Grand Wazoo"). The result was another masterpiece from a guy who created more of them than most.

The two featured tracks are thr opener, Big Swifty, and the closer Waka/Jawaka. Both of these are long tracks, where the band gets tested, playing some of the most intense compositions you will here anywhere, with some fine solo sections interspersed.

The two tracks in between, Your Mouth and It Just Might Be A One Shot Deal, are great as well. These are vocal tracks, that offer a brief respite between the two fusion powerhouses.

An absolute must for the fusion collector.
