El Dorado, Frank LoCrasto's second release is the missing soundtrack to your life. Remember the first time you saw the sunrise? Listen to the opening track Simple Times. Frank's ability to recombine sounds of the past with the melodies and sensibilities of the future has made for a both haunting and blissful listening experience.
Frank is known for his superb keyboard work with Greg Osby, Jeremy Pelt, Pat Martino and Joshua Mease. With influences ranging from Erroll Garner to Raymond Scott to Brian Eno, Frank honors those moments you hold closest to your heart. And you can't help wondering which one of these lovely songs will be playing when your heart finds another.
