Our Chapter Sixteen, Sinatra on Sinatra, was inspired by Frank Jr.’s Angel Records project, As I Remember It.
Grab this one, everyone. It’s well worth the price of admission.
Frank and Rosie
Of course, he had been sharing the mic since the forties. Join us for a sampling of those earlier collaborations in the studio and in the movies, Saturday, June 8 at 6pm EST and Sunday, June 9 at 8am EST on Metromedia Radio.
Will Friedwald (Da Capo Press)
Sinatra! The Song Is You is the first full-length work to document the musical life of Frank Sinatra.
Drawing upon interviews with Sinatra collaborators, arrangers, and musicians – as well as previously unpublished conversations with The Voice himself – author Will Friedwald chronicles this five-decade career, tracing the evolution of his vocal style.
Will’s a great researcher and a fine writer. Sinatra! The Song Is You is a first-class resource that you will consult time and again. While this 1997 volume appears to be out of print, digital downloads are available.
JUNE IS NELSON RIDDLE MONTH
ON METROMEDIA RADIO
Heard the documentary, Nelson Riddle in His Own Words yet? Response has been fantastic.
As we promised, the program gets you closer to Riddle than you ever imagined possible. Complements to producer, Stephen Paley for his wonderful work on this production.
Encore performances are scheduled for June 2, 2013 at 6:00 PM, June 7 at 8:00 PM, June 13 at Noon and June 21 at 8:00PM. All Eastern times.
Can’t think of a better way to commemorate Nelson’s June 1 birthday. Riddle would have been 92 years old.
