Jazzyfrank Launches New Album @ VIE Hotel, Bangkok.
Jazzyfrank was joined by jazz legends Brian Simpson and Koh Mr. Saxman when he launched his brand new album "Sundance" at VIE Hotel in Bangkok on March 9th 2012. The album, Jazzyfrank's first, has been three years in the making, a period that he describes as "taking the time to develop my identity."
Brian Simpson became involved when the pair became friends through Facebook. The American keyboard player was looking for new venues in Asia to perform when Jazzyfrank and he discovered they had very similar musical tastes. This led to the duo's collaboration on the track "Social Network".
The album has eight tracks in total: Sundance, Frank's Groove, Moving Along, Ivar, Social Network, West LA, Sea Breeze and Night Mood.
Words, photos and movie by Paul Hutton, Bangkok Scene.

Channel 5 News Anchor Elizabeth Sadler acted as Master of Ceremonies for the event, introducing the musicians to gathered media representatives and members of the music industry. A mini concert was then held with Brian Simpson joining Jazzyfrank and his band on stage to perform Ivar, Moving Along and Sundance.
The album is already in shops, and is available at INT Music, on the fourth floor of CentralWorld in central Bangkok.
