Napoleon Murphy Brock and Mats Öberg play Zappa
Yesterday Zappa sideman Napoleon Murphy Brock and Swedish pianist Mats Öberg did a concert in Umeå, Sweden. According to Radio Dupree's correspondent the highlight was a set of several Zappa songs played in sequence: Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance/What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body/Oh No/Son Of Orange County/More Trouble Every Day.
In July they performed with other musicians in Hamburg. Then the repertoire consisted of Zappa, Schubert, Satie and Bach. This time they performed as a duo, and about 75 % of the repertoire consisted of Zappa songs, to the audience's delight.
