An excellent tenor saxophonist who hardly ever rose beyond the journeyman stage despite his abilities, Frank Socolow had a transitional golf swing to bop design. He first proved helpful skillfully in 1941 with Jack port Melvin and acquired stints with Georgie Auld, Ted Fio Rito, Roy Stevens, Truck Alexander, and Shep Areas. He was highlighted with Boyd Raeburn’s Orchestra in 1944 (and afterwards in 1948 and 1956-1957), the short-lived Pal Rich big music group, and Chubby Jackson, touring Scandinavia using the last mentioned during 1947-1948. Socolow is at Artie Shaw’s beboppish big music group during 1949-1950 and in the past due ’50s, used Johnny Richards’ Orchestra. He documented with Raeburn, Wealthy, Jackson, Shaw, and Richards plus Sid Catlett, Johnny Bothwell, Pal DeFranco, Charlie Ventura, Sal Salvador, Terry Gibbs, Cecil Payne, Manny Albam, Gene Krupa, Teddy Charles, and Joe Morello (1961) amongst others. Frankie Socolow also led two classes of his personal: four tracks in 1945 having a quintet also including trumpeter Freddy Webster (noticed at his greatest) and pianist Bud Powell, and a complete album having a sextet in 1956 for Bethlehem (reissued on Compact disc by Fresh Audio). But despite all this activity, he continues to be just a footnote in jazz background.
