    It depends on how one defines classical (or non-classical, for that matter). Zappa is played many ways, but here is an excellent CD of Zappa music played in a classical manner (ostensibly Baroque, though I can't say it sounds like Vivaldi et al.).

    Yeah, that's a good recording! I have a bunch of those Zappa repertoire albums. Other favorites are Ed Palermo Big Band's first two CDs, and a little known Swedish release recorded live by the Bohuslan Big Band.

    I decided I didn't like the Palermo interpretations, but I'll give it another listen. Maybe it will grow on me . . . like Zappa himself did over the years.

    I think Palermo did a great job on the arrangements, and his band is phenomenal. The third CD Eddy Loves Frank didn't get me all that excited, but the other two I really like.

    Martha doesn't signal when the orchestra comes in, she's just pursing her lips..

    On Spotify:

    Charles Lloyd--Forest Flower {Live @ Monterey}. This is some outta sight music created by Lloyd and Jarret and it is definitely going to be one of my next "non-classical" purchases from Amazon.

    A folky 2-play for my morning walk - both albums I have only listened to a couple of times before, both great!

    @Conor71, Both are truly classic works, and bring me back to my youth a thousand years ago!
