The Grand Wazoo is the eighth studio album by Frank Zappa and The Mothers, released in November 1972. It was written and recorded during Zappa's period of recovery after being assaulted in December 1971 in London. Along with its predecessor Waka/Jawaka (July 1972), this album represents Zappa's foray into big band music, the logical progression from Hot Rats (1969) which used a much smaller lineup. This was the last release on Zappa's own Bizarre Records label, and the quality of the music after 50 years is as compelling as ever.
