After Frank Zappa was knocked off stage at the Rainbow Theatre in London, England, FZ recuperated for months at his home in Laurel Canyon. Although confined to a wheelchair, his zeal for work could not be restrained
During this time, among other things, he managed to assemble an ensemble that quenched his thirst and desire to work with a large "Electric Orchestra." Eventually, a 20-piece group was contracted and completed recordings and an 8-city tour. Shortly thereafter, a scaled-down 10-piece formation, now known as "Petit Wazoo," toured for nearly two months
In the end, FZ finished the experiment with two albums, "Waka / Jawaka" & "The Grand Wazoo", as well as two tours and an archive of showmasters in his Vault. For a man with a cast on his leg and a conductor's baton in his hand, this was a monumental achievement.
