One Last Time
Contemporary Jazz meets Classic Rock in 'One Last Time'. It might take a long list to itemize the many influences on this album, from Jimi Hendrix to Deep Purple to Miles Davis to Larry Carlton to Carlos Santana to Eric Johnson, but there is one unifying element: this album is really all about GUITAR. Artist's Liner Notes: One way to describe this rather eclectic group of tunes would be that they fuse classic rock tone, rhythms, sounds,and feels with a jazz-based melodic and harmonic vocabulary. If that either sounds too academic or just like nonsense, listen to a few previews. You'll get the idea. 1. Next Generation Rock-fusion. Many guitar tracks. A little Miles Davis influence. 2. Guidepost TV Show theme meets AC-DC. Many guitar tracks. Classic Rock in the middle. 3. I Need to Know Slightly melancholy, blues-influenced. Again, many guitar tracks. 4. Fifths Tribute to the Seattle's gift to the guitar, played on the guitar type he is most associated with. 5. Homecoming Country-influenced. Written after my father came home for the last time before he passed away. 6. No Singing in the Garage Rock. Country. Many different guitars. Short tribute to John Lord of Deep Purple in the middle. 7. I'll be Here Fusion. Many guitar tracks. 8. One Last Time Fusion with substantial classic rock influence. 9. Watch this Space Congas, percussion, latin dance beat. 10. Red Current Jam Power trio, rock shuffle. New Old Stock is the jazz/rock fusion vehicle of guitarist and composer Richard Franklin. 'New Old Stock' showcases music resulting from an eclectic variety of rock and jazz influences, including Jimi Hendrix, Steely Dan, Pat Metheny, Larry Carlton, Eric Clapton -- also Southern and Classic Rock. 'One Last Time' will also give you your money's worth -- more than 3/4 of an hour of music with no 'filler' -- cool, rocking tunes, tight arrangements, and first rate playing.
