With all the long, free-wheeling solos, it might be technically accurate to categorize Zappa Plays Zappa, guitarist Dweezil Zappa 's tribute to his father's music, as a jam-band experience.

Well put!! I really enjoyed the show, and I originally was worried that I was wasting my oney on a glorified tribute band. The band seemed to enjoy themselves, and DZ really seemed to appreciate the audeince, something other performers should learn to do. Both he & Ray White stayed after the show and spoke with the fans too. The King Kong finale remined me of a Tye North "conducted jam" at the end of a String Cheese Incident show a few years back, where he would signal various band members, who would them play according to his direction. It was fun to watch. I first saw FZ Halloween 1976, and I think ZPZ does a fine job of keeping the tunes alive.
