DOWN AT THE ZOO is the labor of love of Austin musicians Malcolm â€œPapa Maliâ€ Welbourne (Papa Mali & The Instigators, Killer Bees) and George Carver (Ponty Bone, The Modern Agriculture, Lonelyland), and features performances by other great Texas musicians including David Sanger (Asleep At The Wheel), David Carroll (Billy Joe Shaver), Amy Farris (Kelly Willis), Rick McRae (George Strait) and Mark Rubinstein.
The CD features original compositions by Carver and Welbourne, including the title track â€œDown At The Zoo.â€ So jump back with â€œThe Funky Yak,â€ step aside for the Sara Brown composition â€œKangaroo Ride.â€ You'll have a good time â€œJammin' At The Zoo,â€ and everybody sing along to the classic Meters song, â€œThey All Asked For You!â€
