    Written by Brad Barker

    If Frank Zappa were to suddenly open a Parisian café, the music they played inside would sound like this record.

    Stanley Clarke and Jean-Luc Ponty are household names, even to people who may have a casual acquaintance with jazz, especially fusion. 

    Ponty is known for his work with Frank Zappa as well as his equally astonishing solo career.  And Stanley Clarke has all but reconstructed what it means to be a bassist in any kind of music. Lesser known to some, guitarist Bireli Lagrène comes from the classic French mold of Reinhardt-laced gypsy swing.

    Stretch from the album D-Stringz is your First Listen for October 30th.
