Jazz Genesis - Don Francks

In honour of his recent passing, we wanted to share Don Francks podcast with you.

Don Francks was an accomplished actor, jazz singer and activist. He performed and recorded for many years with Lenny Breau and will be releasing a double live CD later this year.

Don shared his love of Dixieland, ragtime, swing and blues in his Jazz Genesis podcast, which includes some of the earliest jazz recordings from New Orleans, Manhattan and St. Louis.
