- riccardo fassi tankio band: riccardo fassi tankio band plays zappa - the return of the fat chicken
(2017, cd, italy, alfa music)
Well, he's back with another (superb) tribute album. Subtitled "The Return Of The Fat Chicken", the tracklist counts ten Zappa compositions, the George Duke classic 'Uncle Remus' and a couple of intros and outros composed by Riccorado Fassi and Antonello Salis.
This is great. A beautiful package (CD, jewel case in a slipcase) and a some great arrangements. Except maybe for the slow version of 'G-Spot Tornado'... I'll have to give that another listen...
And also featuring the fabulous Napoleon Murphy Brock on vocals on a couple of tracks.
What else do you need to know?
An essential album for the Zappa freak.
