Description

For decades, the Los Angeles jazz community has been fortunate to have bass player Henry “The Skipper” Franklin in their midst. He’s a paragon of jazz consistency, as trusty as they come. The best musicians living in the area or visiting the area have called on this technically assured bass player for gigs and/or recording dates: Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Archie Shepp, Freddie Hubbard, Roswell Rudd, Hugh Masekela, Willie Bobo, the list stretches on and on. Franklin even turns up on the gold record Stevie Wonder’s Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants.
