Henry Franklyn

The Skipper at Home


Format: CD

Out of stock

Jazz-man Henry Franklin, widely respected for his service to the finest jazz players, brought that ineffable quality called soulfulness into play when he made his first record for producer George Porter at Black Jazz, The Skipper. Not unexpectedly, his follow-up affair titled The Skipper at Home teems with the same jaunty uplift. In sync with Franklin's musical spirit on the second recording are returnees Charles Owens on saxophone, Oscar Brashear on trumpet and Kenny Climax on guitar along with several new faces: trombonist Al Hall, Jr., soprano saxophonist Kemag Sunduza, drummer Leon "Ndugu" Chancelor and keyboardists Kirk Lightsey (a Black Jazz regular) and David Durrah.
