zappa sings zappa
from the myspace entry:
Zappa, Ed Palermo, Nigey
Lennon, and John Tabacco have again joined forces to present ZAPPA
SINGS ZAPPA, a two-hour concert experience featuring Candy's spine-tingling
vocal renditions of her brother's songs, along with original compositions in the
Zappa spirit, composed by Nigey Lennon and John Tabacco. As always, Ed Palermo's
arrangements are superbly performed by his hand-picked band. The rich program
includes many of Ed's most popular FZ reworkings, as well as some world
premieres. Nigey Lennon is featured on guitar and vocals, and John Tabacco
continues in his role as the Palermo band's 'swell vocalist' -- a position he
has occupied since 2002.
something to be said for family ties. Candy Zappa has been living and breathing
her brother Frank's music for decades, and her white-hot vocals sometimes
uncannily echo FZ's equally fiery guitar performances. And there's no doubt in
her mind that her brother would have approved of ZAPPA SINGS ZAPPA.
"Performing with Ed and his band is like being in a dream," she says.
"Whenever I sing with them, I can see Frank right down front, beating his
knee and grinning up at me."
