Editorial Reviews

Frank D Rone s great voice and commanding stage presence make it
easy to understand why he became a recurring guest on The Tonight
Show with Johnny Carson and was requested by Frank Sinatra to appear
in the lounge whenever The Chairman was performing in the show
rooms of the Las Vegas and Atlantic City venues.
Frank s TV appearances include the Dean Martin Show, Steve Allen
Show, Merv Griffin Show, Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Mike
Douglas Show, Garry Moore Show, and Joey Bishop Show.
Awards include Playboy All Star Jazz Poll. UNICO Performer of the
Year, Chicago Jazz Magazine Award, and Leonardo Da Vinci Award
for Excellence.
Eight weeks of national radio promo by Dick LePalm.

This is a must-buy CD for anyone who loves vocal jazz.

Now I know why... ...guys like Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Nat Cole had so much regard for Frank D'Rone.

I just received my copy of Frank D'Rone's latest album, "Double Exposure".

[excerpted from VocalStandards.com review]

Frank D'Rone may be the best classic standards artist that you've never heard of. If you are familiar with Frank, all the better (and my apologies).

From my perspective, Frank's sort of been "hiding" in plain sight ... I mean he had (continues to have) an awesome vocalist/jazz guitar career; rubbing shoulders and working with the likes of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett and a vast array of artists, stud jazz musicians and arrangers.

I find it odd that I've missed FD'R to date, but on the other hand that is one of the things I enjoy about this genre ... the exploration and the discovery of amazing talents both in the classic era and today. With this 2012 release Frank D'Rone actually fit's both bills.

FD'R certainly falls into the "long lived/still performing" category. If my math's correct, the guy will turn 80 this April and first hit the stage with a guitar in hand around age five.

The LP is aptly named ... it is split pretty much down the middle with six tracks that leverage an excellent 17 member jazz band arranged and conducted by Phil Kelly, and five numbers where only Frank and his guitar deliver the goods.

Literally interleaved with odd numbered band tracks and even numbered guitar/vocal songs, the flow of the album offers a subtle, emotional arc to the album when played straight through that I didn't expect.

It's not a theme album, but alternating between "just FD'R" and the full band accompaniment numbers does render the sense of a story being told. Before you start plucking favorite numbers off the LP for your play list, listen straight through once or twice ... it's very cool.

"Double Exposure" is Frank D'Rone's long-awaited new release on Whaling City Sound. The CD consists of solo vocals self-accompanied on guitar, alternating with dynamic big-band numbers with charts written by Phil Kelly. Each one of the tunes is a gem. Frank's vocal control is astounding and his guitar work is also impressive. This is a must-buy CD for anyone who loves vocal jazz.

I just received my copy of Frank D'Rone's latest album, "Double Exposure". I had the opportunity, no privilege, to listen to it twice so far. Frank has not lost his magic touch, voice. It's like being in Vegas, no it's like being with him in the studio - no it's all these.

There are great vocalists and great guitar performers - he's both in one package. Got to experience his guitar scat in "Pick Yourself Up". I can see why D'Rone was Sinatra's favorite lounge performer ..... that puts us in some pretty good company - don't you think?

If you appreciate one of the masters of vocal phraseology, you need this collection. The cover is red and the music is red hot!

FRANK D'RONE DIED OCT 3,2013 AT 81. THIS ALBUM IS ONE OF HIS BEST !!!!
I check for tone,sustainability of a high and long note,modulation,believability of the lyric he's singing,the song choice,arranger/conductor;Phil Kelly and the featured soloist's from this 17 piece orchestra which backs up D'Rone on 6 tracks. His guitar accompanist/improviser with a full tone that belongs with the voice (5 tracks).

I asked him on Facebook,that I wished He would record someday,"Speak Low" which he said is on this album.
My favorite versions of this song (weill&Nash) are done by D'Rone, Jackie Ryan and Michael Crawford.
"Dancing on the Ceiling" (Rodgers&hart) reminds me of the first time I heard this song, which was sung by the late Jeannie Hoffman on her debut album on Fantasy, recorded in 1958. Another great version of that song is here on this cd. I'm going to stop here,enough said. everything here is ***** 's ! ! ! ! ( A bit over 47 worth it minutes. )
