In 1972, FZ experimented with an “Electric Orchestra” concept which resulted in two albums: Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo; Celebrating the 50th anniversary of this endeavor, Waka/Wazoo documents the recording sessions with outtakes & oddities.

Also included is a live show from the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco on 12/15/72 + the unreleased FZ-produced George Duke demos. A Blu-ray Audio disc features both albums with brand-new Dolby Atmos & 5.1 mixes + the 96/24 high-res stereo remasters.
