A Frank Zappa show goes way beyond a mere concert. It is an experience‚Ķa flight of improvisation, musicianship, and cerebral cynicism. An unparalleled composer and guitarist, Frank Zappa redefined rock ‘n’ roll paradigms by introducing into the mix his favorite influences from classical music, jazz, blues, doo-wop, traditional and non-traditional music. And he did so with unparalleled humor and audacity. But it was the music itself that influenced generations of musicians and, quite frankly, blew minds. Roxy: The Movie, filmed over three nights in December 1973 at Hollywood’s Roxy Theatre, is a powerful display of this experience and reveals what made Zappa such a pioneering musical revolutionary.
