Michael Franks

It’s been seven years since we last visited with Michael Franks, when he had just released his last studio album “Time Together.”  In a few weeks, his brand new album “Music In My Head” is set to be released and it continues in his tradition of combining elements of jazz, pop, and Brazilian styles, with his unmistakable voice leading the way.  “Music In My Head” was a collaboration with several producers, arrangers and musicians, including the late Chuck Loeb, Jimmy Haslip, Scott Petito, Gil Goldstein, Charles Blenzig, Bob Mintzer, David Spinozza, Eric Marienthal, Manuel Quintana, Rachel Z, Billy Kilson, Larry Koonse and many more.  The album drops in early June, but during our chat with Michael we’ll play a few samples to whet your appetite. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome back Michael Franks.
