I don’t consider my Zappa project any kind of crusade or following any trend for that matter. It’s just music I love. I’m often asked if the jazz community will ever embrace Zappa’s music. I have no idea. I don’t even really care. Maybe that’s a selfish point of view, but life is short. Why waste time worrying about such stuff. Zappa himself said before he died that he didn’t care how he was remembered or even IF he was remembered. Eventually, I and my band will stop doing this Zappa project and go back to my original material, once again happily outnumbering the audience.
