EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE | Carey Frank's Something To Remember Him By
Carey Frank burst into our consciousness in 2017 and is doing his best to take advantage of his time in the spotlight.
Frank got the call to join Tedeschi Trucks Band earlier this year to fill in for their ailing keyboardist Kofi Burbridge. His addition was evidence as to just how deep the TTB bench goes, wowing audiences at stops along a huge summer tour, without losing a step.
This fall, he drops his second LP as a bandleader, Something To Remember Him By, a departure from the raucous rock and soul of the TTB, but a proper showcase for his talent nonetheless.
Scaling back to a duo, Frank's Hammond organ dances around the mellow, jazzy guitar work of collaborator Bruce Forman across 11 self-produced tracks.
We are happy to be able to offer an exclusive stream of the album at Tomorrow's Verse ahead of its official release on Tuesday, November 7th.
The story behind the album lends to an even greater appreciation of the work. Inspired by Frank's grandfather Don Cornell, a notable crooner in the big band days of the 40's and 50's, each of the songs embraces the feel of that era and were even recorded using vintage equipment.
Frank's original composition "Iris Iris" -- a tribute to his late grandmother (and Don's wife) -- feels right at home amidst songs performed by Cornell throughout his career before passing away in 2004.
He'll rejoin his friends in the Tedeschi Trucks Band for a pair of shows in his hometown of Los Angeles this week and with the release of Something To Remember Him By, they will all have something to celebrate.
