Zappa sideman Brock in Zappa/Bach project

Napoleon Murphy Brock, former lead singer in Frank Zappa's band, plans a project with music by Bach, Zappa, Hendrix, Miles Davis, Satie, Schubert and George Gershwin.
At least one concert is planned, at St. Katharinen Kirche in Hamburg, Germany on July 16. The ensemble includes Swedish pianist Mats Öberg. Rumours say that there may be a concert in Öberg's old hometown Umeå as well. Umeå is Cultural Capital of 2014 (along with Riga of Latvia).
