INTRODUCTION:

Michael Franks was born on September 18, 1944 in La Jolla, South California. (Note: According to Yahoo, La Jolla is one of the best place to visit after a break-up!) A young Michael absorbed the literature of American standards by the greats: Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Johnny Mercer, plus the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Nat King Cole. At age 14, he spent $29.95 for a Japanese Marco Polo guitar. He studied English at UCLA. During that time, he was mesmerized by the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Miles Davis. In the late ‘60s, he relocated to Canada, where he opened shows for Gordon Lightfoot and worked briefly with the band Carnival, later Lighthouse. He cut his first self-titled record in 1973 for Brut Records. Then, he was signed by Warner Brothers. His first record on Reprise was The Art Of Tea (its title lifted from the book by Okakura) in 1975. His only charted hit was Popsicle Toes (43/1976). From 1973 to 2012, he has a total of 23 record releases (including compilation and greatest hits). Except the Dream box set in 2012, I have every Michael Franks CD.

Today Michael Franks lives with his wife Claudia in Woodstock. He is indeed the mystical, mellow messenger: the weaver of dreams. He is the wise and gentle poet placing passion fruit at the feet of the sleeping gypsy, transforming her mirages of amore into Tropic of Virgo moonlight she will cup in both hands.

CONTENT:

Dragonfly Summer (1993) is Michael Franks’ 14th album release. For this album, Michael retained Jeff Lorber and added the Yellowjackets, Gil Goldstein, and Ben Sidran to the lineup.

I first heard Michael Franks cold on a recommendation. And a pretty startling first listen it was too - a clear voice with unusually perfect enunciation singing over a cool jazzy background. Perfect listening!
Then I listened further - what were these lyrics about? Slippery and cunning - even nods to TS Eliot and and Lucille Ball. I thought to myself, this is intelligent stuff for the discerning and educated listener, not any old rubbish.
Impressed? You bet! I think I tired of Dragonfly Summers eventually - you , but still get it out for those warm summer evenings with guests drinking Pimms. Think of it as warm and friendly music and enjoy the maestro of this genre.

I've had this CD for years. I bought it after hearing "Dragonfly Summer" on Jazz FM (UK); and I've never looked back.
Such beautiful music... just listen to "You Were Meant For Me" and all will become clear!
