About the Author

Artt Frank, bop drummer/composer, and author, is best known for his long-term association with Chet Baker, with whom he collaborated for over 20 years. Artt has also worked with an impressive list of jazz luminaries over the past sixty years including the great Charlie Parker, Tadd Dameron, Dexter Gordon, Sonny Stitt, Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Jimmy Heath, Al Cohn, Ted Curson, and many others, including one memorable night with the great singer, Billie Holiday. In 2004, Artt completed his book “Essentials for the Be Bop Drummer” with Pete Swan and published by Tim Schaffner, publisher (and drummer!) of Schaffner Press, Inc. Artt Frank was inducted into the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame in November, 2010. He currently lives in Green Valley, Arizona with his wife, Lisa Frank.
