Moved to Portland!
In January 2020 I moved to Portland, where I was meeting some great musicians when Covid-19 came. I am hoping to restart the band in the future. Check out this site for information and demos from Eugene and Seattle.
—Jazz Flute Project
Jazz Flute Project plays swinging jazz standards, soulful ballads, and bossa nova.
Frank brought the Jazz Flute Project to Eugene in the Spring of 2015. The concept is to have a jazz quartet featuring the flute, with piano or guitar, bass, and drums. The group can also perform as a trio or a duo with various combinations of instruments.
Frank started the project in Seattle in 2012, with Kurt, Barry, and Rogene (pictured below). They made some demos and played a few gigs in Seattle.
In September 2014, Frank moved to Eugene, Oregon. Just before he left, he recorded some more demos with Greg Bumpus on piano, Greg Domingo on acoustic bass, and Bob Chester on drums.
