Music Great Hall
Perico Sambeat Plays Zappa Festival Jazz Palma 2021
The internationally acclaimed saxophonist Perico Sambeat leads an impressive group of important jazz musicians in the performance of musical motives from his successful recording Perico Sambeat Plays Zappa (Karonte, 2016).
This magnificent work, undertaken in detail with all the professionalism of these great musicians, who give life to the exceptional avant-garde repertoire of the progressive rock genius Frank Zappa, is brought to the world of jazz without losing any of the essence of its original creation.
Musical themes from Zappa’s emblematic recordings, Hot Rats, Over Nite Sensation, The Grand Wazoo, One Size Fits All or Roxy & Elsewhere and others, have been recorded under the direction of Sambeat, sparing no effort, rehearsals or transcriptions and giving everything necessary to make this production one of the most interesting and attractive projects at this time.
It is an absolute treat, a masterpiece of quality, geared to Zappa fans as well as jazz aficionados.
Presented in Fila U, for The Summer Festival of the Teatre Principal de Palma
