Close

Time Together is a jazz vocal album released in 2011 by Michael Franks with Shanachie Records. It is Franks’ seventeenth album and marked a departure from his previous recordings by being his first with an independent record label.

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars and stated “The singer’s use of Zen wisdom in the modern jazz lyric and melody, underscores everything fine and right in Franks’ art from The Art of Tea to the present day. While his framework may be contemporary, his execution is timeless, making Time Together Franks’ most consistent, graceful collection of songs in the 21st century.”
