Birthday of Frank Sinatra – Happy Birthday

By | 2017-06-10T00:19:37+00:00 December 12th, 2011|Categories: Articles|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

On December 12, 1990, Frank Sinatra celebrated his birthday by giving a concert at Meadowlands, and having a party after it. During the concert, Sinatra started with “You Make Me Feel So Young”, sang many songs, New York New York with Liza Minnelli, and songs with Eydie Gorme and Steve Lawrence. At the end of the concert, every single person at the Brendan Byrne Arena shouted “Happy Birthday” to him.

Frank Sinatra: This is without a doubt the finest birthday celebration I think I’ve ever had in my life. Not think, I know. I just simply want to say I love you all dearly and I thank you for taking part in this wonderful night for me. I should never forget as long as I live. God bless you all, and good night. Thank you.

After the concert, Barbara Sinatra threw a party for Frank at Waldorf Hotel with a hundred people. She rose to her feet, made a toast, and said:

“Darling, All these years you’ve given the world beautiful, wonderful music, but you have given me the world… One more thought, the fourth time around is really lovely!” said Barbara to Frank Sinatra at the private party after his Meadowlands concert in New Jersey Wednesday on the occasion of his 75th birthday.

Mrs. Sinatra was a dedicated and ravishing hostess at the Waldorf in New York when about 200 of the creme de la creme of the Sinatra world gathered to exude the milk of human kindness together.

The party was fairly low-key and sedate, yet warm and informal. Sinatra did a karate chop at his birthday cake, as if dismissing it, and he seemed overcome with emotion after all the speeches, particularly by his wife and children. So he decided to make a few jokes about the room’s sound system. “Charlie Waldorf better get in there and do something about this room; I’ve lived in this hotel for years and was never in here before. I never want to party here again.” This was all jest and comic relief.

Steve Lawrence, as emcee, said: “A lot of people would like to say something to you tonight, Frank, but some of them have day jobs.” New York Mayor David Dinkins commented that “the danger with success is that it makes us forget injustice. This is not true of you, Mr. Chairman!”

Alan King: “Mozart and Caruso could not have given me the pleasure Frank Sinatra gave me for 50 years!”

Jule Styne dubbed Sinatra “the only man who phrases the lyric; not music.”

Liza Minnelli: “In my whole life, I have never had more pleasure or fun than I have had with you. My sister thanks you, my mother thanks you, my father thanks you and I thank you!”

Robert Wagner: “Your real talent is as a friend.”

Phyllis Wagner: “You were always giving.”

Robert Marx” “Thanks for giving so much love to my mother and making her happy.”

Roger Moore read a rave about Sinatra by the Pulitzer Prizewinning writer William Kennedy.

Jilly Rizzo: “Happy Birthday. I never thought I’d live to see the day. A lot of other people didn’t think so either.

Tina Sinatra, weeping: “You are an American treasure. I am so grateful that you’re 75 and I expect so much more from you because without you, I’m nothing.”

Frank Jr. attributed his father’s long life to his eating properly and never letting smoke or alcohol touch his tongue. Sinatra responded: “These few days have been sensational for me. It was 6000 to one that I’d get to be 50 years old, but 75? I love it. I’ve had some fun in the past weeks and a few tears.” (by Liz Smith, 16 December 1990, The Evening Post)

Today, after 21 years of this concert, we are celebrating Frank Sinatra’s 96th birthday. Much has changed since then, the whole world has changed. But there are still millions of Sinatra fans out there, and a simple Sinatra song can make their day better.

Thank you Mr. Sinatra, for singing more than a thousand songs during your career, singing perfectly. Thank you for making us cry when we are sad, without your songs “sad” is never really “sad”. Thank you for the happy days we get when we listen to your songs. You are love, you are loneliness, you are happiness. You are every feeling there is.

Happy 96th Birthday Frank Sinatra, we miss you. May you rest in piece…

Pamela Anderson To Host Frank Sinatra’s Birthday

PAMELA ANDERSON TO HOST FRANK SINATRA’S BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA BENFITTING THE ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION
Three unique event experiences to honor the Chairman of the Board

Hosted by Pamela Anderson, A Swingin Affair gala, benefiting the Alzheimer’s
Association, which takes place Sunday, December 11, 2011 at the Riviera Palm
Springs, celebrates Frank Sinatra’s birthday in grand style.  The event
series includes three unique celebrations in one day beginning with an
exclusive VIP cocktail party at Sinatra’s former home, gala and after party.
Performances throughout the event include Frank Sinatra Jr. and his 20-piece
Orchestra, singer/pianist Daniel Joseph Baker (America’s Got Talent), X
Factor finalist Phillip Lomax, jazz artists Matt Dusk and Luca Ellis, and
actress/Broadway star Lainie Kazan.  The gala features a sumptuous
three-course dinner, signature cocktails and a star-studded blue carpet in
honor of Ol’ blue eyes.

This is not your typical gala,” says Ricardo Coronado, co-chairman of the
event. “This is a lifestyle experience. They say, ‘They don’t party like
they used to.’ Well, we do. We are bringing back the decadence of Frank’s
lifestyle and putting it into three luxurious parties in one day and night,
and if guests party like Frank did, the extravaganza could go into the next
morning. This is all about honoring Frank’s legacy, style, and swagger and
helping a great organization in the process.”

First stop is the exclusive VIP cocktail party at Sinatra’s former Twin
Palms estate, which was designed by famed architect E. Stewart Williams and
lived in by Sinatra and first wife Nancy and then Ava Gardner. Canadian jazz
artist Matt Dusk, Jr. Trio, who has three No. 1 international hits, will
perform with The Buddy Greco and cocktails and canapés will be served
poolside from 2-5 p.m.

Stop two of the night will be the main gala boasting a celebrity blue carpet
at the posh Riviera Palm Springs where Sinatra held most of his lavish
parties. Architect and visionary Irwin Schuman designed the historic
location and the event will be fashioned in the grand Hollywood Regency
style.

The night closes with an after-party, starting at 11:30 p.m., at the swanky
Starlite Lounge in the Riviera and featues performances by Phillip Lomax,
Daniel Joseph Baker and Luca Ellis, and cocktails will be flowing into the
wee hours of the morning. A special toast and a cake will be cut at midnight
in honor of what would have been Sinatra’s 96th birthday.

Frank Sinatra Sydney Concert 1961 – 2 December – Australia

By | 2017-06-10T00:19:37+00:00 October 23rd, 2011|Categories: Articles|Tags: , , , , , |

There are hundreds of concerts of Frank Sinatra, but some of them are very special. This might be because one particular concert was on a historic date, or very important people attended it, or it was at a very important place, OR it was so good. This 1961 Frank Sinatra Sydney concert is a special one, because in many ways it is awesome, magnificent, and brilliant. And what’s more? We have the video of it.

Frank Sinatra Sydney Concert 1961

Sinatra comes to stage while the orchestra is playing the music of Ring a Ding Ding and the show starts. He is totally in the mood for singing the songs in this concert, and the way he sings makes some of the songs much better than their studio versions. You can feel the swing and his energy while watching it.

When I wrote this post, there were many available videos of this concert on Youtube, but allmost all of them are taken down now. I specifically want to mention the performance of  “I’ll Be Seeing You” because in my opinion, this is the best version ever. Some might find the tempo fast though. Sinatra performed this song only few times live, so it is a treasure. Below is Frank Sinatra’s “Without A Song” performance.

Here is the songs list of the concert.

I’ve Got the World on A String
I Concentrate on You
Night and Day
Moonlight in Vermont
In the Still of the Night
I’ll Be Seeing You
Day In, Day Out
The Moon Was Yellow
You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You
Monologue
Come Fly with Me
April in Paris
A Foggy Day
Without A Song
Imagination
The Second Time Around
Young at Heart
Witchcraft
Embraceble You
The One I Love Belongs to Somebody Else
My Funny Valentine
My Blue Heaven
One for My Baby
The Lady is A Tramp

It is a real real shame that this Frank Sinatra Sydney Concert is not officially available in a better quality. We have too many average concerts which are officially released, but this super concert can only be watched on YouTube thanks to uploaders. In fact, if I had not uploaded all the songs, you would miss some songs as not all of them were available before. Who knows how many concerts there are as good as this Sydney one without our knowledge.

Hearing wonderful news and not sharing with you? Impossible. The official Frank Sinatra fan page on facebook has announced that we have an incoming album: Sinatra: Best of the Best.

19. Oh! Look At Me Now

Now, I know this is just a Sinatra: Best of the Best album, not Sinatra: Best of the Best of the Best of The Best as title suggests, but thanks to the lovely authorities, some people keep choosing the best songs of Frank Sinatra for us over and over again. So in maybe 10 or 20 years, we may buy the Sinatra: Best of the Best of the Best of The Best album as well. These authorities are so good at choosing songs that they include “Love and Marriage” in this Sinatra: Best of the Best set. Okay, you may very well love that song; but including it in the best of best album? Don’t think that makes sense. Mayhaps in a “Most Popular” album.

Again, thanks to the authorities, we can pay again for the same songs. And why? Because they are in a different CD! And the album name is different! How wonderful.

How about editing and improving some unreleased concerts, making some effort for Sinatra? How about releasing some HD concerts, instead of putting the concerts together that were already released and naming it “Concert Collection” ? How about buying those 200+ recorded shows of Frank Sinatra and releasing them instead of letting them gather dust in a cellar in a club? But of course Sinatra: Best of the Best is a nice of making quick money.

My friends, there are lots of things to say, but who is listening? Making money using the name Frank Sinatra is easy. The important thing is, doing such work that Sinatra legacy deserves. Maybe one day…

Frank Sinatra Interview With Kerem Gorsev

By | 2017-06-10T00:19:38+00:00 August 28th, 2011|Categories: Articles|Tags: , , , , , |

Born in 1961 in Istanbul, Kerem Gorsev is one of the important jazz musicians in Turkey. I had a chance to see him perform with his trio last year, in Tony Bennett – Kerem Gorsev Trio concert, which was quite an experience. Though I am not a big fan of trios, I try to follow him from time to time to see and understand his progress, since Kerem Gorsev is the most famous cazz pianist in Turkey today. Needless to say, Kerem Gorsev has been performing in many other countries as well, due to his success. Since I know he loves Frank Sinatra, i wanted to interview with him, and he has been kind to accept my request.

Kerem Gorsev Sinatra Interview

Dear Kerem Gorsev, first of all, thanks for accepting my interview request. Firstly, I want to talk about you. You are one of the leading and most popular jazz musicians and pianists in Turkey. When did your first interest in jazz music appeared and who encouraged you about this or which musicians influenced you at most?

When I was studying at the music college, I showed interest in jazz music when listening to the LP’s of my brother and his friends. They used to convert them into cassettes and give me. I listened them and was impressed, and started to understand the way of that music. Bill Evans has been the first and the most influencing jazz pianist in my whole life.

What kind of jazz music do you love most? Do you try to stick to one when creating your work of arts?

I love acoustic jazz and the music of 1950s, 60s and 70s. When making my music, I stick to the traditional trio style. Quartet, quintet and big bands have also been a matter of interest for me. Combining the style and behavior of those eras and the stories that live gives me today, I am trying to find a taste and style myself.

Do you like Frank Sinatra? When did you first listen to him?

I am one of the millions of Frank Sinatra fans in the world. I have plenty of CD’s of him at my house. When I started to listen jazz music in the middle 1970s, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Johny Hartman and Nat King Cole were the male vocals I love at most.

Frank Sinatra was a person who proved himself in different types of music such as jazz, swing, pop, ballad and easy listening. Which style of him do you prefer, and which songs of Frank Sinatra are your favorite ones?

Frank Sinatra has impressed me most with his recordings with large orchestras. Especially the recordings, which used the arrangement of Claus Ogerman and in which Sinatra worked with Antonio Carlos Jobim are of the most important recordings of music history. The ballads he sang in TV Shows with Dean Martin and Judy Garland with large orchestras including string sections are still listened with pleasure. The song I love at most is the ballad Nancy, which is for his daughter.

What are your opinions about the orchestration, background, arrangement and quality of Frank Sinatra songs? Can you define them as rich and qualified?

Frank Sinatra worked with the best musicians and orchestras throughout his life. Working with big bands and string orchestras and with the best orchestra conductors and arrangers such as Nelson Riddle and Claus Ogerman, Sinatra has made himself timeless with high quality music.

It is for sure that Frank Sinatra was once the best. Do you think he still has an effect on musicians of today’s world? Do people know about his art as well as his fame today?

Sinatra was one of the most important musicians of the world in his times, of course. In our times, I think musicians of the young generation use the things, which they learn when listening to Frank Sinatra’s CDs or watching his DVDs and movies, in their musical career. Frank Sinatra was a very serious, successful musician.

Coming to the end of our interview, do you wish to add anything related to Frank Sinatra or TheFrankSinatra.com?

Your website has undertaken a task of introducing Frank Sinatra and teaching about him to younger generations.  I congratulate you.

Mr. Kerem Gorsev, thank you very much for the interview and your kind answers. I wish you success in your life and in your musical career, and days full of jazz and Sinatra.

Frank Sinatra Bootlegs and Selling – Trading Concerts

By | 2017-06-10T00:19:38+00:00 June 14th, 2011|Categories: Articles|Tags: , , , , |

If you visit YouTube or similar video sites, you are very likely to watch an amazing Frank Sinatra performance from Frank Sinatra bootlegs. Then you will look for more videos from the concert, but you will not see any. This is because the person who uploaded the video is one of the bootleg traders, and the video you have just watched was a sample from that concert. You can either buy that concert for 10-15$ or you can skip to another sample performance video from a different concert. Yes, this article is about the bootleg trading.

Let’s consider the “I’ll Be Seeing You” performance from the 1961 Sydney Concert, which is absolutely amazing. If you want to watch more songs from Sydney Concert, there are only 7 of them on the internet, as far as I could find. But sometimes you are not even this lucky. Most concerts have 3-4 videos on the internet. The rest? Waiting for you to buy from a guy crazy about money. If you search the terms Frank Sinatra Bootlegs in Google, you will find many lists of people that include all concerts they have for sale.

frank sinatra bootlegs

Of course, it is the person’s choice to sell them or to upload the whole concert on the internet. This must be a good way to earn money and the idea of getting 10 dollars for a DVD can be very tempting. But it is a shame if the seller is a fan of Frank Sinatra. We, Sinatra fans, know how great he is and if more people see different videos of him, then it will help to keep the flame burning. It is really a shame for a Frank Sinatra fan to sell the Frank Sinatra bootleg concerts instead of sharing them for free.

Now, if we consider what the Sinatra Family thinks about sharing the Frank Sinatra bootlegs, we clearly see from the posts in Sinatra Family Forum that Nancy Sinatra, daughter of Frank Sinatra, is strongly against the sharing of Frank Sinatra bootlegs materials. The main reason is that in many of these videos, the performance of Frank Sinatra is not that good. So they only want a concert to be released if Frank would want it to be. Of course, no singer would want any of his bad performances released since they would affect the singer in a negative way. But is this case also valid for Frank Sinatra, too?

I would say, NO. Frank Sinatra is in such a position that he is almost untouchable. All his recordings, officially released concerts and his image among public is like he was the God once. Sinatra himself and his music are so highly respected that even if people watch a bad performance of him, they would not think badly about him. When I watch a performance which is not good, I say “Mhmhm this sucks, let me watch the amazing x concert”, and that’s it. And this is the same for many other people. In fact, who would think that Sinatra sang all the songs all the time in a perfect way? Of course he had his ups and downs, nothing wrong with that. I am not saying that bad performances should be officially released, but they should at least be shared among Sinatra fans.

What’s more, many of his concerts are really great. Nothing wrong with them! All these “bad” performances are not even bad. They are quite listenable and enjoyable. So why let others decide for us about what we can listen and what we cannot?

I remember when Frank died I was in the drive thru at a coffee shop and it came
over the car radio.That was before most people had cell phones,I drove right
home and my phone rang right away confirming the news.A sad day indeed.I
remember thinking,the world has changed now in some way for better or worse,but
it will never be the same.

Danny Tintindo

Frank not a day goes on whn i dont feel ur presence… sometimes like a friend sometimes like a father… i miss you…I know you are somewhere , drinking your jack daniels… cheers frank.. you are still best and u ll be forever. rest in peace because flame is burning !!!

Frank is a CREATIVE music MAKER. A musical sound from FRANK is a HEALING Balm.

Sebastian Casmir

Frank wasn’t any voice, he was THE Voice! He had Style, charm and he gave alot of love to his listeners, There never was, and will be anybody like Frank. And when u listen to his music, it doesn’t seems that hes gone, Proof That Legends never die. R.I.P Ol’ Blue eyes.

Sami Batescoff

The Chairman of the Board means a lot to me as I was raised on big band music by my Dad and naturally, Frank Sinatra was front and centre. From his early days with Tommy Dorsey to his breakout show at the Paramount, to the Rat Pack days in Vegas at the Sands and to the end of his career, Frank Sinatra is The Voice and someone that many try to copy. Good Luck with that. He will always be the Chairman of the Board and an entertainer who will be looked up to for generations to come.

Mike Beard

He certainly was the CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD/love his singing

Angelina Mandara Morgan

JUST THE BEST,THE VERY BEST, EVER……

Carol Soltys

Francis Albert lives on forever 100 years from now he will still set the standard generation after generation have discovered and loved him in the past and will continue to do so in the future when we are long gone from the earth old blue eyes will sing on and on and on.

David Farber

I am a 3rd generation Frank Sinatra enthusiast and I listen to his songs nearly every day . May 14, 1998 was truly the day “The Man and His Music Died” but his songs, movies, and love for family and friends will never die. We will be listening to his incredible vocal stylings for many years to come. My prayers are and will always be with his family and fans.

Rick Ventura

Frank was a great entertainer and talent. I have read many books about his life and know that he lived a life of high drama but was generous and helped many people. My husband does a great Sinatra tribute show in the Palm Springs area and is keeping the music alive.

Frank Sinatra’s Death

By | 2017-06-10T00:19:38+00:00 June 3rd, 2011|Categories: Articles|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Following part about Frank Sinatra’s Death is from My Father’s Daughter by Tina Sinatra.

9th of May, 1998

The new millenium was in sight.

Dad was determined to be a part of it. “How many more months?” he asked me.

Eighteen, I told him, rounding down a bit.

“Oh, I can do that” he said. “Nothin’ to it.”…

14th of May, 1998

The phone rang at exactly 11:10 pm. It was Rex Kennamer. “I have bad news, we lost him.”

“Lost who?” I said.

“Your father. I’m sorry.”

 

13 years ago, Barbara Sinatra was outside for dinner. Frank Sinatra’s situation suddenly got worse and he was taken to hospital at around 9pm. The doctors called Barbara immediately, and tried to save Sinatra for like 1,5 hour. Despite how long they tried, they couldn’t save him. In the end, at 10:50pm, Frank Sinatra died from a heart attack…

And at 11.10pm, Tina Sinatra was informed that her father had passed away. She called Nancy and in minutes they got to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Tina Sinatra: “…My father lay facing us, eyes closed, hands over his chest; he lay on a lowered gurney, ready to be wheeled away. Barbara was seated in a chair to his left. We entered the cubicle without acknowledgment. I went directly to Dad and knelt beside him. “Oh, Poppa,” I said. At the sight of him my tears broke their dam. I wept freely, my forehead pressed against his upper arm. I looked for fear in his face, but saw none. His strain and torment were gone- in death he looked once more to be a figure of command. When i touched him, he was still warm. For an instant, I thought i was him move. I silently prayed for him. Oh God, take him and make him safe and warm, but keep him close to me. And to him: I am so sorry I was not here for you. I was filled with guilt and anger, but kept those feelings contained. I just kept saying to myself that I loved him, over and over again…”

In Sinatra family, Frank Sinatra’s death and the funeral arrangements were a total mess due to Barbara Sinatra. Sinatra’s children weren’t informed about Frank Sinatra’s Death neither when he was taken to hospital nor during the 80 minutes when doctors were trying to save him. No doubt Barbara ordered the doctors and hospital not to inform them.

6 days after Frank Sinatra’s death, on 20th of May, 1998, the Frank Sinatra’s funeral took place at Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills.

Frank Sinatra's Death Funeral

In The Wee Small Hours, Moonlight In Vermont, Ave Maria and Put Your Dreams Away were played at the church and during the religious service during Frank Sinatra’s funeral, along with some other songs probably.

Frank Sinatra´s Death Funeral Coffin

Here is a video of Tina’s, Frankie Jr’s and Nancy Sinatra’s comments on Put Your Dreams Away and how they explain the moment in the church during Frank Sinatra’s funeral.

Nancy Sinatra: When my dad died, it was the only choice when the question came up which song of Frank’s should be played at the end of the services and of course it had to be Put Your Dreams Away and there wasn’t a dry eye in the church because it’s that kind of an emotional song.

 

Francis Albert Sinatra was born in Hoboken (12th of December, 1915) and died at the age of 82 in Los Angeles, California. Frank Sinatra’s death was shock for everyone. His grave is at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City. He was buried with a pack of Camel cigarettes, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a zippo lighter and dimes.

Frank Sinatra's Grave The Best Is Yet To Come

On the grave, it says “The Best Is Yet To Come”.

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)
