Otto, or the Otto Chamber Quartet as they might also be called, recorded two Frank Zappa compositions on their "Little Pieces" album that came out in 2008.

Otto is:

  • jim hoke: pedal steel, autoharp
  • kirby shelstad: vibes
  • robbie shankle: flute, clarinet, sax
  • austin hoke: cello

and it's of course Jim Hoke's Pedal Steel that makes this quartet stand out.
Nice coverversions of 'Mom And Dad', and of 'Aybee Sea'.

  1. Thanks so much for the mention!

    Otto has actually recorded several more FZ compostions but as yet unreleased. Including: Uncle Meat, Teenage Postitute and Duke of Prunes.

    Hopefully these will appear at some point.
