Z biography
Z was a short lived band in the mid-1990s, formed by the two sons of Frank Zappa, Dweezil and Ahmet. Both brothers sang and wrote the songs for the band, with Dweezil also playing guitars. The band was originally formed with two alumni from Frank's band, bassist Scott Thunes and guitarist/keyboardist/everything else-ist Mike Keneally. Before their first album was completed, Thunes left the group, and Keneally brought in Bryan Beller, the bassist for his band, Beer For Dolphins. With Joe Travers, the vaultmeister for the Zappa Family Trust on drums, this core group released two albums before Keneally and Beller left the group due to issues with the ZFT.

Z's music is highly influenced by Frank Zappa's music. The humor and complexity are unmistakable. The brothers were also influenced by metal, grunge, and whetever else they heard around the Zappa household.

Ahmet has since begun a successful writing career, while Dweezil continues recording, and now primarily works with a band performing his father's songs, appropriately called Zappa Plays Zappa.

Z Crossover Prog

Review by shantiq

4 stars Yes they have the name and pretty queer ones too [Ahmet and Dweezil they escaped the moniker chosen for their sister which is MoonUnit so maybe they got off lightly] and i would surmise Nirvana and Pearl Jam Steve Vai and Prince were much more important to the Zappa boys than Daddy's Oeuvre in all its glory...

They are VERY MUCH of their generation! Nothing Sixties there and nothing Frank; but two accomplished musicians doing their thing... and it requires serious stretch of the imagination to hear what one could call Progressive Rock here; unless we label this Progressive Grunge... A really good album which takes a few listens before one can fully appreciate it ...

Z Crossover Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

4 stars The first album by Z, the band fronted by the two sons of Frank Zappa, Ahmet & Dweezil (AZ/DZ) is quite a rollicking experience. While Frank's humor, and some of his music style can be heard in the recording, the primary comparison can be made to former FZ sideman (and all over this album), Mike Keneally. In fact, although Dweezil gets songwriting credits for all of the songs, with Ahmet adding on some, most of the tracks sound like they could have come from a Kennealy album.

The songs are nearly all hard rock, with Zappa-like rhythmic and tonal twists. There is some amazing guitar work interspersed throughout this album. Some of it I'm sure is Keneally, but Dweezil's playing is also exquisite. My personal favorite is Rubberband, where the Dweeze shreds somewhere between the styles of Steve Vai and his mentor, Eddie Van Halen.

This isn't quite a masterpiece, but it would be a great fit in any heavy prog collection.
