Frank Zappa – Make A Jazz Noise Here

Frank Zappa, The Black Page (New Age Version)

Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the blues, for you.

Sun Ra & His Arkestra, Door of the Cosmos

All right now, that’s Sun Ra & His Arkestra playing “Door of the Cosmos”. Kicking us off we heard Frank Zappa play “The Black Page”.

As a jazz composition student I have a great interest in 21st Century jazz composers. Although Frank Zappa and Sun Ra both died in 1993 I think any discussion of 21st century jazz is incomplete without them. As composers and performers both of them were ahead of their time and they remain influential today.

Something Blue is broadcast on KASU, 91.9 FM and streaming on the internet at kasu.org.
