Though 1967's Lumpy Gravy contains touches of the pop satire that made Freak Out! and Absolutely Free so outrageous, it represents Zappa's first solo foray into the modern-classical zone. An astute student of musique concrète, electronic music and sound collage, the freaker weaves together scraps of orchestration, psychedelic rock, jazz, what sounds like television soundtrack fodder and even oddball snippets of dialog. It makes for a listening experience that's deeply focused and contemplative rather than gut-bustingly absurd -- what Zappa's work with The Mothers was all about. Frank Zappa - Lumpy Gravy 2012-09-07
