Biography

“Frank Minion was born January 3, 1929 in Baltimore. He attended that city’s schools until the Army called him to its ranks. Just for kicks he bagn singing with a group of fellow MPs, and rather rapidly wound up being a member of ther 15th Army Band. Because of his showing great promise, the Army was responsible for his entrance to the University of Minnesota, where he was a math-major and, of course, a music student. Upon leaving school at the age of 19, he returned home, where he joined the Lou Bennett Quartet, which at the time was one of the East Coast’s finest groups. Working with Bennett proved to be an interseting and invaluable training period. being aggressive and restless, Frank soon formed his owxn group and enjoyed a great deal of success and recognition along the East Coast. When the oppotunity came to enter a dramatic school in New York City, he disbanded his trio and attended and finished his dramatic course. Music, however, is his first love and staying in new York, he worked the better night clubs, including Birdland, where he sang with Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb, Bill Evans, Tommy Flanagan, Kenny Burrell, Ed Thigpen and Jimmy Jones. They all agree - as I do - that thios is a man with all the tools to make it big in singing or writing. I’m betting, that once you hear this tremendous LP, you’ll be a FRank Minion convert for life.

Side One is an original suite, done with the superlative backing of Tommy Flanagan, George Tucker, Roland Alexander, and Dannie Richmond.
