“Most music we hear today is a collaboration of many musicians and many thoughts.” Here is a concept of one man being many; and of many concepts being of one idea… a thought to make a sound that is beautiful to behold. That one sound that explains the allure and fascination in what you hear and feel.
Frank Thompson has encompassed these concepts and combined them in a revolutionary way. So many have tried to emulate the creativity of those that have come before; an innovator in his own right, Frank has compiled selections that will astound you as you realize the complexities that are involved in being one man. Such influences as Chick Corea, George Duke, The Yellow Jackets, and Herbie Hancock have been a long standing reflection towards a life’s ambition.
A smooth whisper in the wind that speaks of a timeless soul… the fascination, the intoxication of Smooth Jazz.
The Sound of One is the second jazz release from Frank Thompson Jr. This new cd follows the same concept as his first release, Island Man. One man with many ideas, thoughts and talents. This creative spirit has again written, arranged, and produced this work of music that comes together as one coherent, mellow delicious sound. The concept of one man having the talent to play each instrument, a jack of all . The concept is evident in this musical accomplishment that is created from the soul and spirit of this talented artist.
