Frank Sinatra

Born:

Francis Albert Sinatra was an American singer who is considered one of the finest vocalists of all time, renowned for his impeccable phrasing and timing. Many critics place him alongside Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley and The Beatles as one of the most important popular music figures of the 20th century.

Sinatra launched a second career as a dramatic film actor, and became admired for a screen persona distinctly tougher than his smooth singing style. Sinatra also had a larger-than-life presence in the public eye, and as "The Chairman of the Board" became an American icon, known for his brash, sometimes swaggering attitude, as embodied by his signature song "My Way"

Read "Bill Cunliffe: Always Doing It The Right Way" reviewed by Jim Worsley

Non è la prima volta che su queste pagine intervistiamo Daniele Sepe; del resto il musicista partenopeo è saldamente sulla scena dai primi anni Novanta, sempre mescolando ogni genere musicale—dal folk alla classica, dal jazz a ogni “nuovo ritmo" affacciatosi sulla scena giovanile—e inventandosi spesso formazioni e spettacoli che vanno oltre la sola musica, attingendo al ...

Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke: Diverso Lontano Incomprehensibile

Read "Diverso Lontano Incomprehensibile" reviewed by Chris May


In English, the Italian singer and composer Vanessa Tagliabue Yorke's Diverso Lontano Incomprehensibile translates as “different, distant and incomprehensible." It certainly is different. But it is neither distant nor incomprehensible. It is close-up personal and, though strange, it makes perfect sense, just like a Thelonious Monk piano solo makes perfect sense. It is also beautiful, beguiling ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
