- stanley jason zappa: 88888888
(2010, cdr, usa, new texture – private release)
Stanley Jason Zappa has released "88888888", an album that collects various recordings from 1999 up until 2009. Those of you who are familiar with SJZ's work, or those who have seen him performing at Zappanale, know that Stanley Jason Zappa is into experimental, improvised jazz and that his main instrument is the saxophone.
On "88888888", however, we get to listen to 8 synthesizer pieces. Eight short, but very impressive pieces.
Think of Uncle Frank's "Jazz From Hell", or Conlon Nancarrow's player piano pieces.
Great music. Beautiful package.
You definitely have to check this out, and shouldn't wait too long as this album was produced in a very limited edition of 33 copies.
