Ten years after their debut Smooth Jazz album ALWAYS… made a strong international impact – earning airplay throughout the U.S., Norway, the UK, Japan, Poland and South America – GTF makes a highly anticipated return with CROSS PATHS – an eclectic jazz, pop and R&B infused collection of powerhouse instrumentals, soulful vocals, infectious originals and lush re-imaginings of classics by George Duke and Nat King Cole.
The title CROSS PATHS is a reflection of a group whose core dynamic is driven by the intersection and intuitive chemistry of musical talents from Northern and Southern California and beyond. The five piece band is led by its namesakes, San Francisco based married couple George and Tracy Franklin. George is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who plays bass, keyboards and guitar; songwriter and associate producer Tracy also contributes backing vocals.
Their new single “Ever Since We Met” is a stunning interpretation of Chris Botti’s classic.
