China Ranch

by Frank Briggs

Supple melodies dance over shape-shifting modes and contrasting instrumental voicings. The players carve deep jazz- and funk-based grooves while playfully displacing beats and inverting expectations around every corner.

A Classic
I predict that "China Ranch" will find it's way into every music lover's collection. This CD is SO good.
Great music, stellar playing and just awesome sounding. Top notch in every way.
I feel like I did when I discovered Pat Metheny or Return to Forever. This is special. Thank you.


I think China Ranch is great!
In fact one of my current favourites . Good tunes, some very talented players. I am a big fan of Ric Fierabracci and there is some excellent guitar playing, particularly from Brian Price who I have not heard before.
Keep up the good work! I'm already looking forward to the next album!


I Love this Album.
Hello from London!
China Ranch has been playing at my house for weeks now. Everytime I listen I hear something new. I love this music and so many great solos.
Beautiful guitars...thank you!!

Excellent project...
It really sounds great
I will use it for some cool examples with my students...Excellent Project...


What a heavy-duty CD!
I finally had a chance to check out China Ranch yesterday. What a heavy-duty CD! That\'s some serious fusion. The drum sound is really great, thick but crystal clear, and Ric Fierabracci is out of his mind. I really enjoyed it, and it was nice to hear Frank stretching out and really doing
his thing. Some nice heavy guitar riffs on there as well. Thanks for making my morning more fun. :-)

China Ranch… the entire album
To rate China Ranch as “World Class” just doesn’t say enough. Ladies and Gentlemen… this is “TOP SHELF World Class”. Here in New York State, where Frank Briggs grew up, it was a given to me and my friends that this guy would end up playing in one of the top named groups. Apparently we were wrong… He’s become one of the Top Names.

'm totally and completely blown away with China Ranch
Frank has clearly carved his own "voice" as a musician. Quite frankly, I'm just completely blown away with the whole cd in every respect. Frank's playing is at a level few musicians ever reach - the compositions area great and take me on a journey, musically and otherwise. So many things I hear recently are "okay" or maybe not even okay, and they don't take me anywhere. Oddly enough, some of them are by some of the most well known musicians, too! Each of these compositions takes me on a journey and it's the greatest thing, man!

Absolutely excellent work...
Absolutely excellent work... pristine drumming. The supporting cast of musicians shows killer taste in sidemen. It is cool to hear Travis Carlton on this- I just saw him on tour with Robben Ford and his Dad (Larry Carlton), Novak was on drums. Damn. Killer player with a bright future (Travis I mean, we all know about the rest of those names). I also keep seeing Ric Fierabracci's name popping up with great players and rightly so. The production is superb and the drumming is so inspiring. Great drum sound! Completely badass work, Mr. Briggs. Thumbs up!

D Perry

Wow - phenomenal........fantastic playing, writing and arranging and that was just the first listening!!! You should feel very good about it. I am really looking forward to digging in to it on my overseas trip! Very inspiring!
