Frank Sinatra – Unique and Ultimate Style

Home/Articles/Frank Sinatra – Unique and Ultimate Style

There’s this thing Sinatra does with his hand. We are not likely to see it before 1975, but after middle 1970s, he does it a lot in his concerts. For the past few months it has been getting my attention when i am watching the concerts over and over, and i decided to make a video about it.

When Frank does this, i know he is enjoying the concert a lot.

[Video is taken down from Youtube, and I have lost the original file. It won´t be available again in the near future]

I’ve mostly used the following concerts when preparing, since the video quality is good and it is frequently done.

Frank Sinatra in Japan (1985)
Live at Caesars Palace (1978)
Concert for The Americas (1982)
Egypt Concert (1979)

    I mean this gesticulation is about his macho sobrador(haughty,arrogant) position .
    And beware I´m a widely Sinatramaniac but there are some things that bother me as a woman .

      Well..Silvia i understand what you want to say but u know an artist like Sinatra has a mannerism that goes with the his singing attitude too. But i agree that in personal life (as far as i know from biographies) he wasnt always pleasant..but i am..;) (kiddind)

      I wish you all the best.

    The comment that is this is about “macho” or “arrogant” is truly ridiculous. Do people have to make things up so they can have something to worry about?
    Sinatra would do this–what–once or twice during a show?
    To this day I see Italian people who talk with their hands–I still do…and it’s pretty useful up on a stage. It’s like punctuation, it underlines, it exclaims, and helps make a point. Sinatra is very good using his hands for expression.
    So why worry about it? (I’m making the same motion right now.)
