ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
FRANK UNZUETA RELEASES DEBUT JAZZ RECORD
THOUGHTS REVEALED out June 12 on Sunstone Records




30 April 2012…Sunstone Records will be releasing the debut full-length record from Southern California-based jazz artist Frank Unzueta. The nine-song THOUGHTS REVEALED will be available June 12, 2012.
Influenced by Bill Evans, Chick Corea, and Oscar Peterson and reflective of his classical studies, THOUGHTS REVEALED is the culmination of many years of composing and playing. From the beautiful ballad "The Me You Created" to the Scott Joplin-influenced "Happy Toes Rag" and the Latin rhythms of "Elisa's Dream," each track is infused with personal story and diverse style inspirations that cross both era and geographic boundaries.

Frank has advanced classical piano training, but is entirely self-taught when it comes to jazz. “I was a guitarist first, but jazz always interested me. It’s very natural to transfer those sounds to piano.” Frank has been a staple in the Southern California live music seen for several decades, including with the world jazz outfit One World, which performed with Los Lobos, The Yellowjackets and Los Angeles Philharmonic. He lives in the San Pedro area, is active in the community he loves, and is working with the Music on Wheels program to bring music to people and institutions that do not have easy access to it.

The trio is rounded out by Larry Steen on bass, who has worked with artists including Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme, and drummer Gordon Peeke, whose credits include Stanley Clarke, Michael Jackson, and Bonnie Raitt. Also appearing on the record is saxophonist Eric Marienthal, who has worked with Chick Corea and David Benoit.

Producer Rafa Sardina has worked with Michael Jackson, Macy Gray, Michael Jackson, Shakira, Dr. Dre, Mariah Carey, and Angie Stone. He has received 25 American and Latin Grammy nominations for his work with Stevie Wonder, Luis Miguel, and Alejandro Sanz.

The trio will be at the Crowne Plaza LAX on May 24, and celebrating at the CD release party on May 29 at Spaghettini’s Seal Beach. More dates TBA.

THOUGHTS REVEALED will be available on iTunes, Amazon, other online retailers, and in stores. For more information about Frank Unzueta, visit https://www.facebook.com/pages/Frank-Unzueta-Jazz-Piano-Trio/208312855907277.

SmoothJazz.com Review
Southern California-based jazz pianist/composer Frank Unzueta debuts a most impressive project, THOUGHTS REVEALED, and I absolutely love it. It’s the ticket to Worldwide acclaim for a musician who is already well known and revered in the So Cal music scene. Mr. Unzueta’s primary influences are Bill Evans, Chick Corea, and Oscar Peterson. You can’t do better than that! Inspiration is one thing… then add his own talent and creativity and that’s what delivers the quality, and believe me, Frank Unzueta’s compositions and playing are the epitome of quality. With Larry Steen on bass, Gordon Peeke on drums, and Eric Marienthal on sax, amplified by the production acumen of Rafa Sardina, THOUGHTS REVEALED is World-class jazz personified. This one found its way into my iTunes directly after my first listen. Someday a young pianist will include Frank Unzueta’s name to their list of major jazz influences. Yes, he’s that good!
