Lounge jazz and MOR veteran JACK JONES returns to the UK early next year for s short tour to promote his newest album – ‘Seriously Frank’, a 13 track celebration of the work of Frank Sinatra.
Aged a sprightly 77, Jones is still in fine vocal form and on the tour he’ll be performing with a big band. The repertoire, we’re told, will include countless Sinatra classics along with a smattering of lesser known numbers.
‘Ol Blue Eyes himself was a big fan of Jack Jones and Jones himself always acknowledged the debt he owes to Sinatra. Indeed it was a performance by Sinatra that determined him to become a singer. It seems that Jack was a class mate of Nancy Sinatra and one day her dad came to school to sing at assembly! The young Jack Jones was smitten and the rest is history.
