Come Fly With Me I’ve Got You Under My Skin Summer Wind Luck Be A Lady Moonlight In Vermont More Old Devil Moon Night And Day The Most Beautiful Girl In The World The Best Is Yet To Come All Or Nothing At All (duet with Veronika Rodriguez) The Lady Is A Tramp (duet with Veronika Rodriguez) My Way
A celebration of the music of Frank Sinatra, plain and simple. I'm from New York and was asked to front the 40 piece Côte Ouest Orchestra in France. We toured 7 cities and one concert was recorded. The orchestra was so good that they alone deserved to be heard. I did my best to give a straight ahead presentation of some of the great music Sinatra recorded. This CD features arrangements by Billy May, Nelson Riddle, Don Costa, and Quincy Jones, some of which were augmented by a fabulous string section. A couple of duets between myself and France's great jazz singer, Veronika Rodriguez highlight this swinging album.
