Don Francks
“Jackie Gleason Says No One In This World Is Like Don Francks!” 1963

” Francks broke into Vancouver vaudeville imitating vocalists. Performing for years in Canadian nightclubs he then formed “three,” a jazz trio with legendary guitarist Lenny Breau, Francks developed an intimate, unmistakably personal singing style. On a trip to New York, he appeared on The Jackie Gleason Show. Gleason was so enthusiastic about Francks’ voice that Kapp Records decided to produce an album for him. Recorded at the Village Vanguard, the album was titled Jackie Gleason Says No One in the World is Like Don Francks. Soon, Francks was trading quips with Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show. This is the versatile, inventive, reflective Don Francks who challenges you to live for awhile in his own remarkable world.”
