subject: david tanenbaum cd featuring zappa
the earliest piece on the recording is a little serial exercise by frank zappa. at age 18, zappa was experimenting with serialism and the guitar and tossed off waltz for guitar. it remained unknown until keyboard and guitar player magazine published a zappa celebration edition in 1992. i have a copy of the magazine if you would like to see a copy of the music.
