i guess you could classify dave frank as an underground pianist at this point in his carreer.  "underground" in the sence that dave mckenna was always defined as an underground pianist... ie one of the present day greats but not well known by the public.  his credentials rank him amongnst the elite in that he has the nod from such greats as pat martino, charlie banacos, and the deceased lennie tristano. he is a world class pianist in that in the week prior to his post odds are he just got home from giving a series of concerts in moscow or in china or london and had nothing to do with the making of his web page and absolutely has no idea of how to type html or even the vaguesist idea what it is.   he has authored two very successful books and spends little time on the internet.  i am sure he has no idea that ljp is a very successful and important site.  and no idea that there is a protocol for trying to sell products here.  i would suggest a friendly email  to him explaining the nature of ljp and how the site can help him and what he should do if he would like to sell his products here.  
and handles correctly maybe the forum could continue to get posts from one of the worlds finest jazz pianists  and teachers alive today. and maybe scot could get royalties or whatever from multiple sales of his already very successful products.  
there are two dave franks
one is currently focused mostly in the pop/hip hop genre
and whats her name arguelera's primary producer/song writer
the other is world class jazz pianist and jazz school owner and teacher in new york city.  it is the latter that has posted in the forum.
    if jazz + were really mark levine why would he have to hide behind that name and a personality that rarely posts anything half way intelligent.  certainly mark levine would be posting things that we would all be wowing about all the time? (instead of gaging?)
