Franco is one the Grand Maitre on the Guitar and this person has the voice, is a great bandleader and has excellent songs. His most famous song is "Mario" in 1985. His Group was O.K. Jazz created in 1956, which he renamed to Tout Puissant OK Jazz in 1970. Nobody couldn't leave Franco because he was like a hard rock, which was tough to crack. Musicians mostly from Afrisa went to TPOK Jazz because it was a better band. Over 50 Musicians were in Franco's Band. He had great singers, great guitarists and a great horns section in his rumbas. Sadly, he died in 1989 of Aids. However, he has recorded over 50 LPs and that makes truly a great.
