Product Description

2011 album from the respected actor and performer. There are actors who can sing, and singers who can act and iconic screen star Robert Davi is known in inner circles as the "singer who can act." Davi, who studied opera as a young man, always intended to make singing his career, but as fate would have it his screen career took flight and there was no looking back. Now after 100 movies with remarkable diversity, hit television credits and his directorial film debut, Davi is returning to his first love, making his major recording debut with a tribute to his mentor the legendary Frank Sinatra.

About the Artist

ROBERT DAVI is one of the most recognizable entertainers in the world. As an actor, Davi has been compared to the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum and Lee Marvin. He has worked with the biggest names in Hollywood, from Marlon Brando to Clint Eastwood, appearing in such movies as Die Hard, Showgirls, The Goonies and considered one of the top three Bond villains of all time in License to Kill. His television credits are just as vast, starting with the hit NBC television series Profiler and continuing with Stargate: Atlantis and most recently Criminal Minds.

Caught Robert on the Dennis Miller Show and when they sampled his stuff I thought the entire thing
was a joke - until I realized that it wasn't and he can really, really sing.

Not only that, but Davi is a true throw-back and a guy who obviously reveres Sinatra and the composers
of that era.

This album is playing as I write this, and my wife (a musical theatre major) stuck her head in my office
and said "Wow. He can really hit some notes."

Enjoy.

Robert Davi is astounding on this CD! This is a splendid tribute to the great Frank Sinatra. Davi proves he can croon with the best of them; and I love it. He has a fine sense of timing, a strong command of his repertoire and excellent diction.

All the tracks are wonderful; there's not a dud in the lot. "Day In Day Out" has a swinging flavor to it that provides an auspicious beginning for the album; and other tracks I especially enjoy include the wonderful "Nice and Easy;" the passionate "All the Way;" "I've Got The World On A String;" "Witchcraft;" the melancholy "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning;" "Nice Work of You Can Get it;" "Summer Wind;" "The Best Is Yet to Come" and "Too Marvelous for Words."

This is a must-have for any fan of Robert Davi; and people who enjoy classic pop vocals will not be disappointed. Robert Davi deserves recognition for this excellent debut album; and if we're lucky he'll release another album soon.

I caught the Robert Davi interview on the Dennis Miller Show the previous week and they discussed Davi's new CD. I was able to download it this week, and I found it very impressive as well as the cover art. Bob did a great job on a lot of the tunes I already knew and intrigued me on some I didn't know. I think he did the Chairman proud, and I hope another CD of Sinatra tunes by Davi will be on the way in the near future. On my iPod I have a playlist title that I borrowed from XM radio called Frank's Place and features the likes of Julie London, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, and Sinatra himself. Looks like it has a welcomed new regular...Robert Davi!

There is not a track on this soundtrack that I didn't love. The first I heard it all the way through, I had a long drive ahead, it was top-off-the-car weather, and there is just something about Frank Sinatra tunes that put one at ease. Almost like you have just entered a movie set as the starring role...an old movie where one is not in a little smart car, but some classic car, with scarf around your neck, years ago...it just makes you giddy.

That said, someone who sings already famous songs are rarely a delight for me. Typically, I feel you can't redo a classic. It just sounds wrong with a new voice when the familiar voice is missing. That simply isn't so here. The singer, I kind of hate to say it, sings so perfectly and smoothly I simply wanted this version on over any classic. I truly did. I typically go for the original only.

If you are wanting dinner party music, it's great there as well. Smooth mellow sounds, familiar tunes, a great singer, you feel as though you are in a great lounge. Just bring on the wine and the food and it's heaven.

A great pick for my CD collection and one I'd suggest.

How you react to this music probably comes down to how you answer the question: "Why would you buy this CD when you can get Sinatra himself?"

Davi, like almost every other singer of this music during the Sinatra Era, feels the influence of Sinatra in the way he swings, phrases, and even colors his voice. Let me say that Davi is a really, really good singer, even though he's never going to reach Sinatra's level. His pitch, rhythm, phrasing, and diction are superb. What's missing is something identifiably individual. When you hear Sinatra's voice, you know exactly who it is within a few notes. The same with Tony Bennett or even Bobby Darin. With Davi, you may say to yourself something along the lines of "It sounds like Sinatra but isn't." Indeed, Davi at times sounds like an actor auditioning for the role of Sinatra, rather than someone with his own way with a song. In the very first cut, "Day In, Day Out," he even reproduces Sinatra's ad libs.

Nevertheless, individuality is not everything - viz. Tiny Tim. These are wonderful performances and real lessons for would-be singers of this repertoire.

So romantic, smooth and mellow. He makes me feel like he's singing to me...what a beautiful voice! I play it while driving, while working, at parties...all the time...puts everyone in a good mood. Best CD I've bought in years. Please make more CD's Mr. Davi, I could listen to you forever!

There's a long history of actors branching into singing, some convincingly, some not so much. Actor Robert Davi, who sees himself as a singer who fell into acting, joins the former group with this salute to Sinatra. Davi shows that an actor's expressive ability and top-notch accompaniment go a long way to recreating the character of Sinatra's performances. Davi has a compelling baritone, and his enthusiasm for the material and the man are obvious. He's deeply influenced by Sinatra - as would be just about anyone singing these songs at this point in musical history - but not imitative. He evokes Sinatra's playful attitude without raiding every nook and cranny of the master's style, leading the orchestra through swinging charts by Nic Tenbroek in the same Capitol studio Sinatra waxed some of his greatest sides. The song list is drawn primarily from Sinatra's years with Capitol and Reprise - roughly mid-50s to mid-60s (only "Mam'selle," from 1947, dips back into his Columbia years) - and weighs heavily to iconic swing sides. The ballads - "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" and "Here is That Rainy Day" - haven't the desperate loneliness of Sinatra's originals, though the latter's heavy strings add a nicely orchestrated mood of brooding. Davi hasn't the perfect vocal control of Sinatra in his prime, but he evokes the attitude with affectionate vocal inflections - a trombone-like slide, hummed note or snappy verbal aside - that bring the Chairman's style back to life.
