The years 1977 to 1982 were the best of this genre, and You'll Never Know fits perfect. Parts of this album are very jazzy; "God Bless the Blues" and "Journey" are tasteful piano pieces. But the highlights for me are "Felix Leo" and "The Watcher," a slow, mysterious, thoughtful track. For some reason these tracks go great whilst watching a severe storm; I first experienced this listening to the slower tracks on Herbie Hancock's Man-Child record. The rest of the album is good . Too bad it's been essentially forgotten and never released on CD. It's easily the best Rodney Franklin album, as subsequent recordings would largely descend into more commercial, less jazzy territory. Reply See 1 reply Notify me Helpful.

Rodney Franklin is a perfect example of a jazz improviser who didn't live up to his enormous potential. The s early albums were quite promising, but after that his work became increasingly uneven and erratic. And eventually people were asking, "Whatever happened to Rodney Franklin?" Recorded in 1979 and released in 1980, the artist's second LP, You'll Never Know, is his finest and most essential release
Fusion keyboardist Rodney Franklin was born in Berkeley, CA, in 1958. He began piano lessons at the age of six. After graduation, he worked with John Handy in San Francisco and toured with Freddie Hubbard, Marlena Shaw and Bill Summers. His debut album In the Center appeared in 1978 on Columbia. Two years later, Franklin hit the Top Ten with "The Groove," from You'll Never Know. The next six years brought seven more albums from Columbia; none were as successful as You'll Never Know, but Franklin continued to build his reputation as a respected fusion artist
