The name HOT RATS MEDIA is an hommage to the famous album by Frank Zappa. Zappa’s first true solo album, HOT RATS (1969) is considered the be the first Jazz Rock album and was recorded on 16-track equipment and one of the first albums to use this technology. It was groundbreaking in music history and influenced many jazz fusion musicians later on. The jazz-rock fusion style that Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin advanced in 1971 can be traced directly to HOT RATS.
