In Kohl's hands, each tune is an expedition, and his patient, painterly approach uncovers jewels. - Bill Milkowski. Over the many years, Frank Kohl has thoroughly explored the fine art of solo jazz guitar. From his NY upbringing to his years at Berklee, time spent in the Bay Area to his last 30 years in Seattle, the influences of Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, Pat Martino, and particularly Joe Pass, informed his path. Kohl's evolved approach strives to connect the guitar to the great solo piano traditions where he stretches the time, colors the tone and uses the melody to guide him, often to destinations unknown. Through "Pacific," his seventh recording and the second of all solo guitar, Kohl holds close to his heart the voices and journeys of his musical guides. "His soaring solos and swinging tunes unveil a spirit tuned into the moment and where the notes may lead... his solos sing true with room for breath and emotion." - Earshot Jazz
