- the yellow snow crystals: live
(2016, 2cd, ger, private release)
Actually, they use Zappa's songs as a vehicle to tell and to sing funny stories, and to improvise. They're hilarious.
The Yellow Snow Crystals got founded by Paul Hubweber in 2011.
With Paul on the trombone, Alexander Morsey on the double bass (and sousaphone), Martin Verborg on the violin and saxophone, Simon Camatta on drums and the engaging Gerhard Horriar on lead vocals, they're not your average rocking teenage combo.
This is jazz. This is experimental. And it's fun to hear and to see.
I've seen the band on a couple of occasions (Mosae & twice at Zappanale) and I'm glad to tell you that the joy that the band showcases in concert has been translated on this live album.
"Live" collects the Yellow Snow Crystels in concert at various times and at various occasions. An excellent collection.
The 2 CD set is accompanied by an informative booklet (lyrics and pictures) and is housed in a beautiful package. Artwork by Alfred Reuters.
Even if wouldn't understand German, this album is worth your while.
