Album Notes
J. Scott Franklin:

Hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, J Scott Franklin embraces the blue-collar work ethic of the area, forging a multi-faceted career as a poet, musician, and performer. His live performance repeatedly astonishes audiences as he layers trumpet, guitar and voice with a simple loop pedal to create a fresh orchestra of Rock, Folk, Jazz and Country sounds. Cool Cleveland states boldly that J Scott "represents Cleveland's new brand of multi-dimensional, renaissance type poets".

J Scott Franklin is currently touring in support of his new album "Chain of Words," released by the Infinite Number of Sounds Recording Company. The disc is a collection of his poems set to music by J Scott and members of Infinite Number of Sounds, Racermason, Low in the Sky, To Box With Man, and other prominent Cleveland musicians. His one-of-a-kind live show has landed him on stage at venues throughout the Midwest and East Coast, including the Toledo Museum of Art, Nashville's Boardwalk Cafe', and Cleveland's Beachland Ballroom.

In addition to his solo work, J Scott has also performed and recorded with members of the Count Basie Orchestra, Infinite Number of Sounds, Grammy-winning arranger Willie Smith, Racermason, the Aphrodesiatics, and the Ross Feranda Jazz Quartet.

J Scott Franklin - "Chain of Words" is available on-line at CD Baby, www.infinitenumber.com and at various independent music retailers throughout the Midwest. More information about J Scott can be found at his website www.chainofwords.com.

"J Scott Franklin represents Cleveland's new brand of multi-dimensional, renaissance type poets who not only write, but also operate on various artistic levels.." ~ Tisha Nemeth, Cool Cleveland

""A mixture of Lawrence Ferlenghetti, Chet Baker and Charles Mingus." ~ Dot Martin, WRUW

"J. Scott Franklin calls it a chain of words. His chain lassoes in moments in time that often go unnoticed. He approaches them from afar with the detail of total recall. The jazz and folk inspired sounds that accompany his work are so smooth its as if music and word came from the same breath. Franklin is a unique and gifted performer, equally worth listening to as a poet or musician."
~ Christine Young, Contributor to Cleveland Scene & Free Times

Lovin' it!
This is an awesome CD. It is addicting. Just kick back and relax and lose yourself in the poems and music. Very creative guy!

Easy Listening
This is relaxing easy listening. Love to play it softly while entertaining friends and to listen to the words on a laid back sunny day.

Shared thoughts...
Smooth...Subtle observations presented in a way they can be understood, pondered, and appreciated from multiple points on our life's journey. Franklin's mellow vocal delivery and unique naturalness to his unforced phrase timing makes me load this CD again and again. This is the work of a genuine artist. You'll like it!
