To sing "My Way" the Frank Sinatra-associated standard meant a great deal to Mann, whose late grandfather had himself once headed to L.A. in an attempt to make it as a Sinatra-influenced crooner, only to shelve his dream, return to Kansas and start a family. "I was raised on Sinatra by my granddad, so I have a strong connection to him as I'm pursuing my own dream," says Mann in a particularly emotional moment. "If he'd known that I'd one day be recording the only other official version of `My Way,' he would be so proud and excited."
Chris Mann sings better than Josh Groban in my opinion because he has a much more controlled vibrato. I was impressed with the songs and the arrangements on this cd and I actually like every selection on the cd, which rarely ever happens. This is a cd that everyone should have in their collection. One of the very best!

I like both Chris and Josh but lean more towards Josh's voice because of my preference for lower-pitched male voices.
