Jack Franklin Wise is a piano artist who creates original compositions and arrangements that will "paint a portrait" in the minds of listeners. This was the inspiration to produce "Portraits in Piano" , his first CD album of original songs. His second release, "Hymns Project" is a tribute to some of the world's most beautiful sacred songs. The "Portraits of December" CD was released in 2016. Among the familiar carols and classic Christmas songs on the album, two of Jack's own holiday songs are included: a rhapsody titled "Advent of The Christ", and "The Little Child in Me" featuring vocal artist Rachel Williams. "Adagio Piano” is the 4th album and latest release from Jack Franklin Wise. This is a collection of soothing solo piano. 12 original compositions performed slowly (adagio) and softly (‘P’, or piano) for easy listening and relaxation. In the early 90's, Jack Franklin Wise was pianist for Belmont Nazarene Church in Pueblo, and also participated with worship teams for young adult retreats at the First Presbyterian Church in Colorado Springs. He composed music and lyrics for “The Luckiest Donkey”, a children’s Christmas play. This delightful musical was performed two consecutive years at the Sangre De Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, Colorado through the sponsorship of a local Christian organization. Music from all four of Jack's albums can be listened to on Pandora and Spotify.
