Rick Frank

Rick Frank began playing jazz drums at age 10 after hearing a dixieland jazz band at a local fair in Central NY. He played with dixieland groups with adults 3 to 4 times his age while still in middle school and high school, playing at the Bix Beiderbecke Jazz Festival, and numerous concerts and clubs around Central NY. He started studying drumset with Jazz Drummer Dick Howard in the 8th Grade. In addition, he started to listen to Miles Davis and other more modern jazz artists, quickly moving through the various styles before he was done with High School. He moved to Boston in 1976, and instantly began playing jazz clubs and commercial gigs in Boston with local established musicians

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
