O’s Notes: Rebecca plays trumpet and flugelhorn. She produced and composed all of the music for Check The Box, a narration of her life to date. She continues to develop as a musician and even takes the lead vocals on several tracks including the blues on “Starting All Over” and on the Latin based title track. Franks really shines with her brass on “Love Storm” shadowing vocalist Summer Carrie and on “Mass”. Luis Perdomo (p, B3), Mary Ann McSweeney (b) and Richie Morales (d) are the rhythm section providing a solid backbone behind her. The album is dedicated to her father who inspired her to play her own music that she does here very well.
