Sinatra — Father & Son

Sinatra_frank_jrFrank Sinatra Jr. stopped by my office today on his way to record a second “Family Guy” show. He’s singing a parodied “On The Road To Mandalay” — to the classic arrangement Billy May had composed for his father.

Frank Jr. continues on his own classic career (now in its 45th year!) in upcoming dates with his 37-piece orch in Wendover, Nevada (Sept.15), Reno (Oct.5), St.Louis (Oct. 6-7), and with the Houston Symphony (Oct.12-13-14).

And he’s added another career — narrating  author-director Paul Lyriazi’s CIA thriller “McKnight’s  Memory” with this all-star cast: Robert Culp, Nancy Kwan, Don Stroud, H.M.Wynant, Alan Young, Edd Byrnes, Gary Lockwood, David Hedison and Henry Silva. It’s a K.M. Production. Sinatra, Jr. made his debut narrating the CD, “As I Remember It” — his father’s career — in 1995.

The 10th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s death, May 14, 2008 will, no doubt, be noted with remembrances of the music performed by him and by those  who have made careers out of imitating him. Tina Sinatra reminded to me that all likenesses must be cleared with Frank Sinatra Enterprises through the family attorney Robert Finkelstein. She confirmed that an agreement has already been worked out with Unshackled Studio Artist Tom Zotos for his tribute to Frank Sinatra entitled, “Meeting Adjourned,” a Special Collector’s Edition lithograph.

C.Christie Craig joined forces with artist Zotos and will exhibit his Sinatra tribute along with his other artistic creations at Artexpo Las Vegas, Sept.28-30 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Of course, Zotos does it his way.
