Candy Zappa Trio

...To Be Perfectly Frank...

In 1969, a small article in Billboard magazine mentioned that Frank Zappa was producing recordings by his sister Candy and brother Bobby. No such recordings were ever made. It was just another quirky FZ news story to keep things interesting. More than four decades later, Candy Zappa now has her album!

Compiled from various sessions that Candy has done with Neonfire, her husband Nolan Porter, as well as classy live versions of Frank's songs with The Ed Palermo Big Band and Project Object (with Don Preston and Ike Willis), Candy Zappa proves with her amazing voice and personality that she really IS perfectly frank!
