Sinister Sister is made up of five excellent rock / jazz musicians.
Early March, the quintet did concerts in Brussels, Eeklo, Brugge and Sint Niklaas. I was told that they already have some concerts scheduled for later this year as well.

I caught them in Brussels and got blown away. An excellent choice of compositions. Fine and playful arrangements. And great playing.
Besides the exceptional technical level, each of the musicians has a very personal and typical style, adding extra colors and moods to the improvisations.
To me, this is the way that Zappa's music has to be performed.
