The Yellow Shark is a live album where Ensemble Modern perform Zappa’s songs and some of the songs were conducted by Frank Zappa.
This was recorded at Alte Oper in Frankfurt, at the Philharmonie in Berlin and the Konzerthaus in Vienna in September 1992. By this stage Zappa was seriously ill from cancer and he died on December 4, 1993, a month after this album was released.
Zappa was only well enough to appear at two of the concerts in Frankfurt where he received a 20 minute standing ovation. These were his last public appearances.
