Your are AMAZING.....
Neil Franklyn was playing in a small club in West Palm Beach, and he blew the place away. I've heard a lot of live jazz and live sax, and I have never heard sax like that before. The subtle, improvisational melodies and gorgeous runs were pure magic. His skill, combined with the beautiful vibe that he emotes, brings his audience to new heights. This musician is a treat for southern Florida to cherish.
