The Jazz Record Art Collective presents the Chris Siebold Octet performing Frank Zappa’s 1969 release Hot Rats.
Hot Rats is Zappa's second solo album and first recording after the dissolution of the Mothers of Invention by Frank Zappa. Ian Underwood is the only member of the Mothers to appear on the album as Zappa's primary collaborator. Other featured musicians were bassists Max Bennett and Shuggie Otis; drummers John Guerin, Paul Humphrey and Ron Selico; and electric violinists Don "Sugarcane" Harris and Jean-Luc Ponty. This album was recorded on 16-track equipment and one of the first albums to use this technology.
"Hot Rats' genius lies in the way it fuses the compositional sophistication of jazz with rock's down-and-dirty attitude -- there's a real looseness and grit to the three lengthy jams, and a surprising, wry elegance to the three shorter, tightly arranged numbers (particularly the sumptuous "Peaches en Regalia"). Zappa's wonderfully scuzzy, distorted tone is an especially good fit on "Willie the Pimp," with its greasy blues riffs and guest vocalist Captain Beefheart." -Steve Huey
