KJAZZ Radio UK introduces and welcomes the very smooth and talented Guitarist Composer Frank Piombo. Recording and performing his own music has been a lifelong dream. Frank hopes that everyone enjoys his songs and finds a connection to each and every one of them. Here at KJAZZ Radio UK we feel you the listener will indeed enjoy Franks music and that is why were delighted that Frank has joined our growing “Family of Musicians”.
Franks first introduction to music came at the age of three. He remembers sneaking into his grandfather’s closet to strum his old acoustic guitar. Later, at the age of six, his family relocated from North Africa to Rome where Frank was able to enjoy the romantic sounds produced by his father’s accordion. Next, at the age of eight he found himself, along with his family, relocating to the good old USA. Finally, at the age of thirteen, Frank was introduced to the great sounds of, a well known band, the “Beatles”. After that, life as Frank knew it would never be the same. I guess, that’s how it all started.
Franks musical career spans three plus decades of professional entertainment as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. He has appeared as a lead guitarist and vocalist with many live bands throughout his career. Frank’s performance history includes work with bands such as Sidewalk Symphony, The Fantasy Band, Stepping Out, The New Prince Band, US & Co., and the original Infernos. He has shared the stage with such great recording artists as The Duprees, The Mellow Kings, Vito and the Salutations, and Vito and the Elegants. He has also shared the stage with various European performers, touring the New York Metropolitan Area, such as “I Nuovi Angeli” and the “Formula Tre.”
Frank has recorded two CD/albums entitled “Smooth Reminiscence” which is a combination of straight ahead jazz, latin jazz, smooth jazz, and easy listening. His latest CD titled “Sleepwalk” is a combination of jazz, smooth jazz, and easy listening with some easy listening vocals tunes as well. Frank has appeared several times, along with vocalist/keyboard player Angelo Uccello, on the “Steve Ames” Cable TV Show.” we have included a video below.
