Frank McComb tributes Donny Hathaway
Featuring Andreas Öberg & Anna Christoffersson
Opening act: Gospel Choir: The Golden City Singers
Frank McComb is a divine soul man who speaks with the native tongue of blues, jazz, gospel, pop and some hip hop. His virtuoso piano and organ work have made him not only an indispensable and highly sought after session musician, but an underground favorite on the soul and jazz scenes. He has recorded or performed with many of musics giants including: Prince, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Teena Marie, Chaka Khan, Lalah Hathaway, Terri Lynn Carrington, Phyllis Hyman and Teddy Pendegrass. He has also done double duty music directing starting his career with Gerald Leverts Rude Boys (Written All Over Your Face) and with pop diva Anastacia. It was Franks performance with Prince, the NAACPs Lifetime Achievement Award Winner on the 2005 telecast that thrust Frank back onto a world-stage. This night served as an introduction for some, but a re-emergence for many fans whove never seen one of their favorites live.
Holding down his first jazz trio at 17, Frank McComb has been a music master since he first tickled the ivories at age 12 under the tutelage of an aunt. Frank counts Herbie Hancock and Oscar Peterson as musical heroes. After one listen you can also throw Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Chick Corea into the potpourri of influences heard through Franks various bodies of work. The world got a taste of his genius on wax and on the road when young lion Branford Marsalis laid down his seminal Hip Hop Jazz recording Buckshot LeFonque which featured DJ Premier and Maya Angelou alongside his legendary ensemble of sidemen and artists. On the release of Buckshot LeFonques second recording Music Evolution Frank handled the vocals on a hit called Another Day.
It was after a false start at Mojazz (Motowns Jazz Label) where an album was recorded, but never saw the streets that Frank hooked up with Branford Marsalis which after time spent led to a recording deal with Columbia Jazz. Columbias indecision on marketing Franks very personal recording Love Stories led to the end of very short road with Columbia. Frank has however defied all efforts to shut him down by remaining an active fixture on the live music scene performing around the world from London to Japan and now FASCHING in Stockholm!
