Episode 60 - Frank McComb

Frank McComb is a divine soul man who speaks with the native tongue of soul, jazz, blue and pop. His virtuoso vocal and piano work has made him a highly sought after session musician.
His fans affectionately describe his work as the perfect combination of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Frank has worked with many of the entertainment industry’s giants including: Prince, Bransford Marsalis, Patrice Rushen, The Rude Boys, Gamble and Huff, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Teena Marie, Lalah Hathaway, Valerie Simpson, Phillip Bailey and more.
After signing to Motown’s short-lived jazz label “MoJazz” from 1992-1994, Frank was able to lend his vocal chops to the Buckshot LeFonque hit song “Another Day”. This feature led to a recording contract with Columbia Records where Frank would record and release his debut CD, “Love Stories” in 2000. In 2003, Frank signed with Malibu Sessions for the release of his 2nd CD, “The Truth Vol. 1”.
After a bit of soul searching, Frank decided to release his works independently and in 2004, he released his 3rd CD, “Straight From The Vault”, an entirely self-written, self-produced and self-recorded CD that would win him “SoulTracks Readers Choice Award” for “Best Album of the Year” and earn him a spotlight with Jill Scott in an 2005 publication of Oprah’s “O Magazine” as one of Ms. Scott’s favorite CD’s. “Straight From The Vault” also became Prince’s favorite body of work by Frank McComb. “Straight From The Vault” was followed by 12 album releases between 2006-2017 under Frank’s own label, Boobeescoot Music, the latest CD being “No Rehearsal/Live In Amsterdam”.
Frank McComb was honored by Music Radar as the 27th greatest keyboard player of all time.
