"The Torture Never Stops"
Frank Zappa released in 1969 "Hot Rats" a crucial work of pop music of the sixties. By his side he had his mate Captain Beefheart and together they gave blues music for the first time an eclectic and transgressive treatment, not always well understood and assimilated. Zappa's genius, first as a music writer and later as a guitarist, also had the blues as his starting point, which he did not cease to have as a reference throughout his career. His unclassifiable music destroyed all the schemes that pop music had known until then, he created orchestras of wonderful musicians to express his ingenuity and intelligence without caring in any case that his proposal was digested by a greater or lesser number of audiences. With this he managed to be considered one of the most admired and respected artists of popular music of the twentieth century. From Turin (Italy), the veteran and surprising guitarist Filippo Bellavia is a deep connoisseur of Zappa's work, he released in 2008 a first album dedicated entirely to his music, "Zappa In Blues", in which he delved into the songs in which the Baltimore guitarist explicitly immersed himself in his particular blues universe. Following with his passion for Zappa, Bellavia directs the band Ossi Dury, formed, in addition to other musicians, by his three sons Martin, Ruben and Simone with the proposal to continue in the wake of paying homage to the genius. To continue the celebration, "Zappa In Blues Vol II" has just been released, always through his own record label Lazarimus, a second part of the album released in 2008 and where Filippo Bellavia once again leaves us stunned with his treatment of the guitar and his complicity and empathy with Zappa's work. Not only should you listen to these albums if you are a fan of Frank Zappa, the music they contain is a delicacy to the ears.
