I was just playing some Sinatra this morning. The album he did with Jobim. Bossa Nova stuff.
freediver ... Yep, Dean Martin was an amazing singer too. Do you have his "Dream With Dean" album. I have a couple of the originals ... but its been reissued on 180 gm. If you don't have it ... buy it. It's Dean Martin's best.
I knew this guy years ago and he would always tell me that the mafia promoted Frank Sinatra and that's why he was so big. I did know a prominent entertainer from the 60's so one day I had the chance to ask them that question. He basically said that Frank did have mob ties that did help him but if he wasn't such a talented singer he would have never made it as big as he was.
