Frank Zappa - The Grand Wazoo

The Grand Wazoo is a 1972 jazz fusion album by Frank Zappa. Composed and recorded during Zappa's period of convalescence following his assault in London, the album, along with its "twin brother" Waka/Jawaka, represent Zappa's foray into big band fusion, the logical progression from Hot Rats, which used a much smaller lineup.
Has a lot of Jazz Fusion,great and complex works,likely Hot Rats but with more Jazz stuff that the other.The songs are full of ''confusion'' and complex rhythm that makes the Grand Wazoo
