Bio..THOUGHTS REVEALED is the debut full-length record from Southern California-based jazz pianist and composer Frank Unzueta. Influenced by Bill Evans, Chick Corea, and Oscar Peterson and reflective of his classical studies, THOUGHTS REVEALED is the culmination of many years of composing and playing. From the beautiful ballad "The Me You Created" to the Scott Joplin-influenced "Happy Toes Rag" and the Latin rhythms of "Elisa's Dream," each track is infused with personal story and diverse style inspirations that cross both era and geographic boundaries. Frank has advanced classical piano training, but is entirely self-taught when it comes to jazz. "I was a guitarist first, but jazz always interested me. It's very natural to transfer those sounds to piano." Frank has been a staple in the Southern California live music seen for several decades, including as founder of the world jazz outfit One World, which performed with Los Lobos, The Yellowjackets and Los Angeles Philharmonic. He lives in the San Pedro area, is active in the community he loves, and is working with the Music on Wheels program to bring music to people and institutions that do not have easy access to it. .. .. .. .. .. .. ............
