No I don't have his number but it's possible to correspond with him on his website.
It just might be a one-shot deal.

Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.

You're right. He can basically call any vegetable.

I ordered the 4-1/2" LP version as soon as I could.
This will be very interesting.

So here I was, driving back from Cactus Record in downtown Houston, fancying me some Zappatunes. Through Quobuz I stumbled upon the Road Tapes. Volume 2, in this case. Pretty much the Roxy era. This one also recorded in Finland (like YCDTOSA #2), but this one is so amazingly different! This is the band (August 23-24, 1973


FZ—guitar, vocals
Jean-Luc Ponty—violin
George Duke—keyboards, vocals
Ian Underwood—bass clarinet, synthesizer
Ruth Underwood—percussion
Bruce Fowler—trombone
Tom Fowler—bass
Ralph Humphrey—drums, cowbell

And this is the band, 13 months later:

FZ —lead guitar/vocal
Napoleon Murphy Brock—sax/vocal
George Duke—keyboards/vocal
Ruth Underwood—percussion
Tom Fowler—bass
Chester Thompson—drums

I think the 73 combo is far better. In particular the contribution of the french fiddler makes a significant impact. He rocks like Sugar Cane did. Didn;t think Jean Luc had it in him.
Mind you, they do a terrible rendition of Brown Shoes. Switch it off after Father O'Blivion. The rest is gold, I tell ya. Gold!

Wow, thanks Charlie, I haven't made it all the way through the interview (yet), but the live footage with Ponty and the full horn section is ace (didn't know Sal Marquez was in the live band during the Pacific leg of the 73 tour)

Thank you. Will certainly listen to this in the evening.
