ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Frank Senior blind from birth, is a native New Yorker and was raised in Harlem, where jazz played a major role in his musical career. His style of music is jazz, blues, standards and gospel, ranging from the 1930s to the present. Early on, he was influenced by artists such as Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, and Aretha Franklin.
Prior to Frank’s musical career, he attended the High School of Music and Art, Lavelle School for the Blind and New York University as a voice major. Frank eventually followed the music a bit later in life. He chose to put voice and acting aside to operate a newsstand, marry and raise a family.
In the early 1980’s, after the birth of his daughter, he auditioned and received a small part in the movie “Turk 182.” As Frank said, “After earning this once in a life time opportunity to become a Screen Actors Guild member, I knew that this was the time to take advantage of my status and show my voice now.”
The Universal Jazz Center was the first of many venues throughout New York in which he performed. Frank Senior has also appeared in places such as Village Gate, Bryant Park, the Angry Squire, Sweetwater’s, the Bluenote and numerous others.
He has worked with many of the legends including, Frank Owens, Earl May, Barry Harris, Harold Maybern, Dakota Staton, Abbey Lincoln, Harry Witaker, George Coleman, Harold Ousley and many more.
During 2000 and 2004, his unique phrasing and smooth style of singing enables him to reach people of all ages. As a recipient of one of the most prestigious awards, the National Endowment for the Arts, Frank was able to produce and perform a series of concerts in the New York area and a featured vocalist on the CD “New Standards” produced by Robert Kelley.
Some of the more prominent festivals in which he performs are Montréal Jazz Festival and the Lighthouse Metropolitan Museum of Art. Other performances include jazz concerts in educational settings, session singing and jingles.

Bob Mover: alto, tenor and soprano saxophone
Richard Clements: piano

It's a good feeling knowing I, along with many of your friends have the privilege of knowing the performer of this fine collection of songs. You have sung them with lots of feeling, expression and soul, especially the balads in which you sound like you are performing with all you've got, excellent!
