Sid Mark's Anniversary Concert with Frank Sinatra Jr. and All-Star Band at Harrah's, Atlantic City
Although Sinatra was a complex figure who often alienated those around him by his street-wise arrogance, he was also a man of great generosity and purpose, never flinching from manifesting his real and true self, whether in his music or his life. Undoubtedly, he would have been proud to see the more humble, self-effacing way his son has dedicated himself to the music, values, and tradition that his father stood for and, to a great extent, was responsible for creating.
[This reviewer would like to express special thanks to his long-time good friend, Janine Carazo (educator, accomplished vocalist, and Sinatra fan), who accompanied him to the concert and contributed many useful musical observations. Finally, deep appreciation to Sid Mark's wife Judy and members of the Mark family for their unreserved hospitality and warmth.]
