Zappa Picks - By Jon Fishman Of Phish by Frank Zappa

Amazon.com

Successive generations of revisionists may argue to the contrary, but rock's best performers often draw upon a rich historical consciousness. That's the driving sensibility of this compilation of favorite Frank Zappa performances from Phish drummer Jon Fishman; the irony, of course, is that the result is a mixed sense of musical nostalgia and inspiration that veteran iconoclast Zappa himself would scarcely have subscribed to. Thus the tracks here arguably say more about Fishman's artistic ethos than they do Zappa's, with the drummer's eclectic tastes ranging from the manic prog-noodling of "Extcenrifugal Forz" and "Apostrophe" to the overt theatricality of "Magdalena," the evocative Nixonian cabaret, "Son of Orange County," and Zappa's loopy tribute to low-budget horror films, "Cheepnis"; if Zappa waxed nostalgic about anything, it was no-brow pop culture of bad '50s monster films--and maybe do-wop. Given his own band's road mania, it's not surprising to find Fishman leaning heavily on live Zappa recordings (and Just Another Band from L.A. and Roxy and Elsewhere in particular), with a trio of Sheik Yerbouti (featuring Terry Bozzio on the drum throne) constructions getting special attention. If it's not definitive Zappa, it is an intriguing way to approach his daunting, musically expansive catalog. --Jerry McCulley
