I. Soprano sax in Bb:

Big leg Emma

II. Tenor sax in Bb:

III. Trombone:

IV. Bass guitar:

V. Vocal part sample:

Big leg Emma, intro and verse (arr. FiftyII50).
Note: the vocal part is included in an mp3 file I also received, upon which I'm basing part of the analysis (like the harmony upon V being a B chord).

Idem in the literal Zappa in New York execution, stressing the mingling of Dorian and Mixolydian in the vocal part too.
