“Frank Zappa is an influence of mine because he was a visionary. Self taught, in the beginning, like me, he learned to read and write his compositions down. I named track 3 on my "O.1.K" album 'Zappa' in tribute to Frank.
Frank also employed another huge influence of mine, George Duke. My favorite track, with George Duke on it, is Inca Roads.
I met Dweezil Zappa auditioning for a tour with him playing his fathers music and it was a joy to jam Inca Roads with him.”
Out on Bandcamp. Check out his amazing version of 'Toxic' and the inspired 'Zappa' piece.
