Frank-Sinatra

Francis Albert “Frank” Sinatra

Frank Sinatra an American singer and motion picture actor often hailed as the greatest American singer of 20th-century popular music. Sinatra had an epic career coupled with a very colorful and public personal life. Through this transparent life Sinatra became one of the worlds most sought-after Stars of the entertainment industry…

Sinatra’s father Martin was a hard working man, a part-time prizefighter and tavern owner. Sinatra’s mother, Natalie was known locally as “Dolly”, a passionate and intelligent woman, she was a powerful influence in local politics and importantly in her son’s life and epic career.

Sinatra begin his love affair for popular music when listening to Bing Crosby in his teens. Sinatra chose to join a local singing group and under the title of ‘the Hoboken Four’ they went on to win a talent competition on the then popular radio program ‘Major Bowes’ Amateur Hour. The success of the radio win was o be the beginning of Sinatra’s musical journey as the group traveled the country.

It transpired that Sinatra was the only member of the group with serious musical ambitions. The group soon fell apart and Sinatra was again on another path to stardom, this time he sang with local bands and remote radio broadcasts.

Sinatra paid his way by waiting tables and singing at the Rustic Cabin in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey It was here that he was discovered by trumpeter Harry James. Harry himself had also recently quit a band (the Benny Goodman Orchestra).

The band singer

Sinatra sang with the James band for six months, which resulted in a staggering ten commercial recordings.

In 1939 Sinatra’s path to stardom took yet another twist, as his reputation steamrollered its way through the music industry opportunities presented themselves and doors flew open. Tommy Dorsey was such and opportunity, the gracious Harry James recognised it as so and agreed to release Sinatra from his contractual agreement.

Sinatra went on to record another 83 commercial recordings with the Dorsey Band in just 2 years (1940/1942). This was to be Santra’s first major body of work, Gin martinis were soon to be flowing in all directions.

It’s not all work and no play – Sinatra’s love of a good Gin Martini 

I feel sorry for people who don’t drink.  When they wake up in the morning, that’s as good as they’re going to feel all day.  ~Frank Sinatra

It is said that Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin gave the Gin Martini sex appeal… well we would be inclined to agree. Like Sinatra the Gin Martini is a serious drink with cool exterior … yet above all complex.

So when you are next in a bar or cocktail lounge and the bar man asks you what you would like to drink? Consider the Gin Martini and think of the many great men in history that have made Gin their tipple of choice … lets face it they all did pretty well.
