Ed Palermo Big Band w/ Napolean Murphy Brock


Frank Zappa’s purely musical genius nearly always trumps his satire whenever saxophonist-bandleader Palermo’s 18-piece ensemble whips up the late composer-guitarist’s repertoire, as they’ve been doing since 1980. And as FZ’s longest-tenured sideman, the singer-guitarist Napoleon Murphy Brock infused Zappa’s music with r&b vitality and plenty of the spontaneous funny, so expect the same during tonight’s sit-in.
