Here is a great example of TMOI in 1968 challenging listeners regarding the stylistic orientation of their music. Contains some amazing Zappa conducting, rock grooves, jazz visuals, and vocal madness. Zappa’s conducting alludes to ‘high art’, yet his image is that of a rock musician – the combination of which is exactly what makes his music so difficult to classify. Why is there no music like this around today???? I would be interested if there was any difference regarding the extent to which the band could get away with their ‘Art Music’ exploits in other parts of the World. For example during the 1960’s – did they have different sets for the UK, Mainland Europe and the States.
