G-Spot Tornado for Orchestra

Category: Zappadan — Brady Bonk @ 9:40 am

There are many reasons to adore this clip.

First, it’s “G-Spot Tornado,” composed on Synclavier, performed live, and it it awesome.

Second, the dancers are incredible, especially the girl dancer, who is just smokin’ hot and can lift that guy above her head. (A warning, I guess: When I posted it to the Twitter earlier this year, a fellow tweep tut-tutted me about it being NSFW. I dunno.)

Third, it’s Frank Zappa at the end of his life and at the top of his game and doing what he loved doing most, directing an orchestra. There is a character on the television program Seinfeld who insists on being called “Maestro.” In the immortal words of Suzy Creamcheese: Fferget it. Zappa was the Maestro.

You watch it now:

    The dancers are incredible…and WTF? NSFW? Bite me!
