Re: Frank Zappa - The Jazz Discharge Party Hat (1983)

A gem from Frank's album The Man From Utopia, but I still prefer the piece "Dangerous Kitchen" instead. The best piece is the opening song Cocaine Decisions.

Cocaine Decisions

Frank Zappa - The Man From Utopia (album)

While on Zappa topic, this is a good interview session from a few of the drummers that played in Frank's group either in 1970s and 1980s. It's too bad Vinnie Colaiuta nor Terry Bozio were not part of the interview group.

And on topic of electric guitars, nothing like the transcript work that shows what Jay Graydon's guitar solo work from Steve's album looks like.

Steve Kipner - The Ending (1979)

Jay Graydon's guitar solo on "The Ending" (TRANSCRIPTION)

Although I play drums and can appreciate quality guitar playing such as Jeff Beck, Frank Zappa, Allan Holdsworth, Steve Vai, Pat Metheny, Larry Carlton, Mike Landau, etc, I was not familiar with Jay Graydon until about mid 1980s. After listening to the solo from "The Ending" for first time back in mid 1980s, I was impressed with Jay's work as well.
