AN ALBUM APPRICIATED BY FRANK FANS MOSTLY... AN ALMOST ALL INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM LETS FRANK AND HIS SEEMINGLY DO EVERYTHING BAND... TAKE A FEW MUSICIANS AND TURN THEM INTO A FULL ORCHESTRA.... THIS IS WHAT FRANK IS ALL ABOUT... HAVING SEEN 46 OUT OF 48 POSSIBLE SHOWS HE PLAYED IN CHICAGO... MISSSING 2 BECAUSE OF SCHOOL I CAN SAY I AM A TRUE FRANK NUT. EVERY SONG AND CONCERT IS A STORY IN INTSELF.

||FZ Jazz Fusion|
This is a fantastic album, especially for fans of jazz fusion, like Mahavishnu Orchestra or Return To Forever. "Eat That Question" is my favorite. Frank's guitar is amazing. A must have... Actually all 78 (or so) FZ albums are must haves!!!
By Cy Borg (Pygmypony, IL, USA)
This is brilliant Zappa, in a perfect record, with an amazing group of players and a big, strong wind section...
It features Ernie Watts, and weird trombone phrases!!
A good introductory record for Zappa
fans, and a must for zappa maniacs.
This definitely a classic in the history of orchestrated jazz-rock.

||The Title Says it All|
The Grand Wazoo is a nearly all instumental jazz explosion without lyrics to weigh the experience down after numorous listenings. Though I have loved Zappa's humorous titles time and time again it is his masterful arangements that keep his legacy alive.
