For a long time, Frank’s dazzled audiences with his guitar-strumming prowess. Recently, he’s developed his solo game by adding what he calls “foot bass,” which is sure to amaze you on a level beyond the standards of jazz. It’s an instrument he plays with his feet! Frank has honed his skill to the point where he can play both bass and guitar at the same time, something only a skilled few can boast. Carl Cox is an accomplished talent straight from the heart of Connecticut – literally. Carl W. Knox was born in Los Angeles, California, and lived on the west coast until his early teens. After moving to the Midwest he received the Bachelor of Arts degree from William Penn College (currently William Penn University), a small Quaker school in Oskaloosa, Iowa, noted for its distinguished jazz studies program. In 1981, while at William Penn, he was awarded the Outstanding Soloist Award at the prestigious Elmhurst Jazz Festival.
