As a long-time Jazz fan it is always great to realize that there is a new young and fresh generation of musicians, who dedicate their great talent to that musical genre.
One of them is pianist Carey Frank from Los Angeles who recently released his debut CD. Frank mentioned that he named the CD ‘KEEP SMILING’, because his grandfather was always saying that. And you can feel that positive message on every single track
Frank, who holds a Master of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern California, presents his music in a classical trio with himself on the piano, Sezin Ahmet Turkmenoglu on bass and Jamey Tate on drums, only in two tracks a saxophone (played by Bob Mintzer) is added.
