  32. Dallas Says:

    in my humble view Frank was without a doubt the greatest mucisan who ever lived. The man wrote and cuducted symphonies literally. He did a Jazz album for fun and won Jazz album of the year. HIs continual proding to get people to vote by having voter registration booths at all his shows. Well in all honesty it just goes on and on. Had a chance to see him in the early 80’s but had something come up and missed my chance, my biggest regret of my life. Frank RIP my man. Because when it comes to music you were and still are the man.
