""Chain Reaction" Sparks Special Collaboration [with John Scofield]"

"John Scofield is one of the most renowned guitarists in modern jazz. Not only has he been the leader on such albums as 'Groove Elation,' 'Meant to Be' and 'Loud Jazz,' he's also an in-demand sideman who's worked with artists ranging from Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan and Charles Mingus to Chet Baker, Herbie Hancock and Billy Cobham. Oh, and don't forget to add New London's Carl Franklin to that list." - The New London Day

"The Graham Weekly Album Review #1752"

"Been a While ... is a thoroughly worthwhile recording that features fine playing, very good material, and a healthy dose of the influence of Steely Dan. For many, that latter quality may well be enough to land this recording on many people's want-lists. But there's enough originality that it does not turn into a kind of tribute album, and there's enough variety to keep it interesting." - George Graham, WVIA-FM

"VIDEO: Song spinners - The Franklin Brothers"

"Sophisticated, polished, intelligent pop music. If you were separating the genetic twine of their music, you'd find cellular imprints of Steely Dan, Toy Matinee, Atlanta Rhythm Section and Toto - along with a sneaky, evocative dash of New Orleans seasoning." - The New London Day
