Embed Experiment: Zappa, Inca Roads
Not for everyone, this Zappa piece is nevertheless a brilliant composition, at least in Porthos' personal canon, especially the 2 1/2 minute guitar solo that starts 2 minutes in--one of the best and most searching guitar solos ever. Nice percussion and xylophone, too.
The breathless techno video presentation/message is well-done but not of interest to me--it's just that this is the only YouTube of the studio version of Inca Roads . . . I do not endorse the philosophy here, which for the most part is alien to me. (I hope the author who was nice enough to put it together does not mind that ungrateful reflection . . .)
