With a career spanning close to 40 years, and having sold millions of albums and performed to sold out concert audiences all over the world, Michael Franks is the quintessential romantic jazz poet. His impeccably warm, serene vocals combined with sophisticated, witty lyrics and heartfelt melodies have resulted in modern classics like “The Lady Wants To Know,” “Popsicle Toes,” and “When Sly Calls.” Superstars from Diana Krall to The Carpenters to Patti LaBelle have covered his songs and he has performed with everyone from Patti Page to David Sanborn. It’s been 5 years since Michael Franks has graced us with a new album, and Time Together was certainly worth the wait. Produced by the likes of Gil Goldstein (Esperanza Spalding, Chris Botti, Jill Scott) and Chuck Loeb (Fourplay) and featuring such legendary musicians as Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, John Mayer) and David Spinoza (James Taylor, John Lennon, Aretha), Time Together delivers the sensual warmth for which Michael Franks is famous. Highlights include the super cool “Charlie Chan In Egypt,” the intimate “Time Together,” the bossa-inflected “Samba Blue,” “Summer In New York” and more – all written by Michael Franks and destined to join his distinguished list of classic songs.
