Rebecca Coupe Franks’ album “Planets" featured on WBGO’s New Day, New Play January 9-13
With the attitude of ‘60s jazz, trumpeter Rebecca Coupe Franks looks to the sky on her new album Planets, a collection of originals, capturing what she says is, " a musical interpretation of 9 planets and the Sun and the Moon." Rebecca takes on her Milky Way musical journey with fellow explorers Louis Perdomo on piano, bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Johnathan Blake. Enjoy the ride, knowing you didn't even need Elon Musk to get there.
From Monday, Jan. 9 through Friday, Jan. 13, one cut from Franks’ Planets album will be featured each morning on the New Day, New Play spotlight on my Daybreak show.
Listen to “Planet X” from Planets, above.
