I bought this after my 24 year old guitar playing son came over and said "You're not going to believe this", proceeding to put it in my DVD player.
He was right.
If you are a Frank Zappa fan, you have to have this. If you are a musician - of any instrument, no matter the style or genre, this will leave your jaw on the ground. I have many, many music/concert DVD's and tapes. I don't have ANY that contain the top to bottom virtuosity that this one does. Rent it, borrow it, or just go ahead and buy it. You shall not be disappointed. They're on tour this summer (2010) and I strongly encourage you to catch them live if you can. This DVD will remove all doubt whether it would be worth it.
And I'm sure Frank is quite proud of the strides Dweezil has made.
Wow, this was beyond expectations, great recording, great concert, excellent musicians and performances. Dweezil does not have Frank's charisma, but this is a nice touching tribute from son to father, and a real treat for fans of Frank's music. Highlights for me were performances by Napoleon Murphy Brock, the Dweezil/Vai guitar duels and alto saxophonist Scheila Gonzales. Great show!!
The first time I saw ZPZ was when Naploean Murphy Brock, Terry Bozio, and Steve Vi were playing with the group. Astounding is the only word that even comes close. Shela Gonzales is a goddess and everybody else is at least up to the Frank Standard. I don't know what you know about Frank Zappa but that is one hell of a statement.
The music is at a techincal level that is incomparable. I mean the precision is off the scale. It will introduce you to a level of precision and near perfection that no other band has achieved.
The second time I saw them was with Ray White. Ray is really great and extremely entertaining. However, I would have to say that the first one was a level above this one.
Now if they can just get Ike Willis to show up.
Buy the DVD. Go to the concert. Don't miss it.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED.
I love live music DVD's and I have quite a large collection of them. This one is the absolute best I have ever had the pleasure of viewing! Dweezil's group is unbelievably good! Frank would be very proud and the camera work is the best I've ever seen. There is a newer sound technique being used here that sounds simply amazing on my home system. Do yourself a favor and buy this if you love live music in the comfort of your home anytime you want that live concert experience.
You should also try to catch ZPZ at their next show near you. I went late 2007 to see them at Berkeley. The best ever!!!!! Thanks Dweez!
If you are a Frank Zappa fan, you will love this set. Dweezil Zappa is an excellent musician/conductor etc. who does real justice to his father's work. This is real music performed by some of the best to be found anywhere.
