Musician, educator, and composer: Frank Vitolo born and raised here in the Pacific Northwest. After graduating from Western Washington University, Frank resides in Seattle where he is creating music with some of Seattle’s elite musicians. Frank has started active projects such as the Franky Vitolo Quartet and the funk sensation, Bad News Botanists. Listeners have describe his playing reminiscent of music titans like Joshua Redman and John Coltrane. The jazz vocabulary is apparent in every moment of his playing with fluidity and unapologetically. Frank performs a mix of traditional jazz from New York to New Orleans, as well as a variety of original music. Though jazz is close to his heart as family, he plays in a variety of projects from Rock, Blues, Hip Hop, Soul, Pop and so many different genres. He is an artist who explores the unknown and is always at the ready to jump dimensions.
