5 stars Zappa's son playing his father's music is like seeing Zappa when he was young. Well does Frank Zappa ever been old, dying before 50. The voice of Dweezil is so close to his father that you can avoid thinking about Frank. The guitar playing is spot on and so, as all other musicians who looks like they didn't get older themselves.

So, you get the feeling that the spirit of the music of Frank is carried on by this band with two well professionally shot concerts, nice picture and a big 5.1 surround sound. I enjoyed the performance of the guest artists, Terry Bozzio, Steve Vai and especially Napoleon Murphy Brock. Frank Zappa, has succeed to made accessible music with his little orchestra playing rock with elements of classical, jazz and pop with a originality and sens of humor that is difficult to surpass. I just find that his extended guitar solos are a bit boring to my taste, but the rest is very enjoyable.
