“He has the passion, creativity and ability to be a real leader amongst his generation.” — Taylor Eigsti

James Francies is the youngest recipient of the American Federation of Musicians President’s Youth Award, and DownBeat magazine has already recognized him twice for Composition and Jazz Arrangement.

His band opened for the legendary Jazz Crusaders reunion, and he has performed at many festivals, including the Monterey Jazz Festival. Grammy-nominated pianist Taylor Eigsti describes Francies as “poised to become a major voice on the instrument.”
