FREAK OUT! LISTENING SESSION AT THE AB IN BRUSSELS, OCTOBER 16
Golden jubilee of Zappa’s debut
Introduction in Dutch by Zjakki Willems
Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention released their first album in 1966: Freak Out! In many ways, it was a milestone of musical history in terms of both music and recording technique. Before Freak Out! who would ever have dared to think that doowop and rhythm & blues could seamlessly cross into classical avant-garde? Not to mention the satirical lyrics, the artwork, Suzy Creamcheese, the multiplicity or the conceptual continuity.
Before we listen to the album in its entirety, it will be introduced in Dutch by Zjakki Willems (radio maker and Zappa fan right from the start)
Classic Album Listening Session: 50 years
AB launches a new series: CALS 50 years! In this series we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of a number of legendary albums with an intimate listening session. On each occasion, the Golden Anniversary will be introduced by an expert/fan of the album in question, after which the classic will be heard under the most optimal circumstances.
