- perico sambeat ensemble: perico sambeat plays zappa
(2016, cd, spain, nuba records)
Spanish saxohone and flute player Perico Sambeat shows one of my favourite approaches. Perico uses re-arranged Zappa melody lines as a basis, as a vehicle for his ensemble to improvise on.
And take it from me, when I say "re-arranged", I mean "RE-arranged". This is great !!
It all started at the Jimmy Glass Jazz Bar in Valencia as a project entitled "Frank Zappa's Alchemy", directed by Perico Sambeat as part of the Jimmy Glass Festival on November 18, 2015.
The actual album got recorded in June 2016.
