Discographie Frank Zappa part 27 - Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar



frank zappa shut up and play yer guitar
Frank Zappa : "Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar"
Label : the Frank Zappa family thrust
Date d'enregistrement : 1981

Cas unique dans l'histoire du rock, "Shut up'n play your guitar" est à l'origine un coffret de 3 vinyles ("Shut up'n play your guitar", "Shut up'n play your guitar some more" et "Return of the son of Shut up'n play your guitar"), vendu par correspondance et regroupant exclusivement des solos de guitare du maître. L'idée à de quoi effrayer. Près d'une heure quarante cinq de solos non-stop, d'exploration musicale débridée – jazz, baroque, hard, contemporain, rock, blues – et pas une seconde d'ennui… Tous les solos datent de 79-80 sauf une petite perle qui ferme ce coffret : "Canard du Jour" un solo de 73 avec Jean Luc Ponty et son violon dingue. A l'époque, le coffret a fait l'unanimité, consacrant définitivement Zappa comme compositeur. Il faut dire qu'à part Frankie, on ne voit guère personne pour réussir un tel exploit. La continuité de l'album n'est pourtant pas des plus évidente puisque certains solos sortis de leur morceau initial n'ont plus les structures communément admises dans le rock. D'où le point: Zappa est le plus grand guitariste de ce siècle et cet album en est une preuve plus que magistrale.
