e2sp5 Dear Jack, I am a singer-pianist-songwriter active inthe Mid-Atlantic region with a cd, SOMEWHERE SOUTH OF HEAVEN, receiving world-wide airplay and reviews.TONIGHT, NOV.5th, ON WDCB OUT OF CHICAGO, A SONG TO WHICH I WROTE BOTH WORDS AND MUSIC, "SALOON SONG" WILL BE THE 4th SONG PLAYED ON MIDWEST BALLROOM HOSTED BY JOHN RUSSELL. I HOPE YOU CAN TUNE IN AS I BELIEVE SALOON SONG WOULD BE AGREAT SONG FOR YOU AND A POTENTIALLY MAKE AN UPCOMING CD OF YOURS A BIG SELLER. I had the pleasure of meeting you twice, as I said in my question to you for CROONER RADIO. Once at The Opera House in Delaware and then in Philadelphia when you appeared with Peter Nero(then-conductor) and the Philly Pops. That was shortly before Buddy Greco left for the UK. Buddy and I had been communicating and he mention to me that you and he had been at a party, lamenting the fact that there were no good songs been written anymore. When I said hello to you for Buddy and mentioned the party, you looked from signing two CDs(your tribute to the Bergmans; GREAT writers) and said, "that was MY party!" My girlfriend snapped a picture of you at that moment and it is on my photo gallery on my website. I'd like to tell you more about SALOON SONG, which seems to receive the most comments from people around the world. I have fans from Australia to Canada and have done many radio interviews including8 appearances on Hawaii public radio and a live 1hr & 20 minute interview from Lagos, Nigeria. I believe SALOON SONG would be a great, strong song for you, especially with your new CD, SERIOUSLY SINATRA, coming out. The New York Sheet Music Society has termed SALOON SONG the "21st century's 'ONE FOR MY BABY'. You can see me perform it in concert on youtube at JOHN PRIMERANO PERFORMANCES or hear an excerpt from it at my aforementioned website. I've been heard many times on AMERICAN STANDARD BY THE SEA and know Dick Robinson, as well as his staff at Robinson media for many years. I believe we have a mutual friend in Adrian Brigham and I am somewhat acquainted, though we've met in person years ago, with Mike Renzi through a mutual friend, bassist Dick Lupino. I am not just dropping names, just showing that I am a veteran in the business myself. I am also an actor and have done commercials, appeared in many films and played a priest in the CBS-TV series, HACK. Tony LoBianco is a friend and I've studied with him. We met as a result of my 38 plus year friendship with Andy Murcia and Ann Jillian I have told many a fan, friend and musician who has not played your act to run, not walk, to see you if they can. I say they will not only hear great singing but witness true showmanship, which is sorely lacking in our business these days. Thanks for all the great singing; I'm looking forward to hearing you on CROONER RADIO, who requested my CD for airplay. I do hope you'll take the time to check out my sites as I believe your recording SALOON SONG would be mutually advantageous to us both. Wish you'd play the Mid_Atlantic region more often, but I know AC is tough and the Philly Pops are doing mostly tribute shows. Thanks for your time, your talent and the pleasure you've given me and all your fans. Very truly yours, John Primerano, JPrimSongs@aol.com.

I have only just found this site. I already have your album 'Sing me a love song Charlie' on vinyl but now I don't have a record player! I have been searching to buy a copy for download or CD & now so chuffed that I've found it on here! Yay!
Great website but thought there might have been an option to join your fan club. I want to keep track of your next UK Tour! (Please,please come back!) My late mother was your biggest fan & I grew up hearing your music. I love being able to listen to you now, close my eyes & I'm with my mum again. Thank you for instilling such wonderful memories for me Jack.
God bless you xx

Hi Jack. I sing too. I was going to use some of my Andy Williams catalogue (I still weep over his loss) But I'm going to give Jack Jones a try. Its amateur singing for sure for me BUT its still singing. I've studied voice (I am a belcanto singer) and to sing with a band is my #1 bucket list wish. Thank you for your wonderful gift of singing all these years. Continued blessings

Saturday July 23rd: an evening of great music, with Jack once again at his very best. The Catalina Club (in Beverley Hills), with its intimate atmosphere and superb acoustics, remains one of Jack's favourite venues - he has fun, and just enjoys performing there....so evident it is!

His audience already enthused, Jack commenced with a 'Sound of Music' medley, and then moved on to several tracks from his most recent album, 'Seriously Frank'. 'All or Nothing at All', with its powerful climax, never fails to rouse, and so we all were.
His subtle first-to-third conversion of 'It Was a Very Good Year' turns this song into a musical narrative of the Sinatra life, from the early, carefree years, to a later time - a time for sober reflections.

Folks leapt out of their seats in wild applause as Jack sang and once again proved: 'I Am a Singer!'

'Without a Song'........a favourite of Jack's - each time he sings this, neck-hairs rise in awe as, with the final phrase, he reaches 'The Impossible Note!'

Amongst the audience that evening, was Charlie Cox, who along with Paul Williams, composed 'The Love Boat - the theme song for the TV series of the same name. It turned out to be a huge hit for Jack, and so he serenaded Charlie, but confessed later, that when approached to sing the intro, never in his wildest dreams could he ever envisage the adventures of a cruise ship ever evolving into a hit television series!

Michelle Legrand's 'What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life?' is a moving, beautiful, and very romantic love ballad, one which Jack performs like no other. This particular evening, he devoted the song to a charming couple who were celebrating their own love story - a very, very special wedding anniversary....his singing of it made their night!

In a lighter moment, Jack has us all chortling as he took the Neil Hefti/Bobby Troup 'Girl Talk' and transformed it into a promo for 'Botox'!

When Beach Boy Brian Wilson, together with Tony Asher, wrote 'God Only Knows', between them they created a gem. A song that has been voted (Rolling Stone magazine) as 'one of the greatest of all time'; that Paul McCartney has named his 'favourite song of all time'; and has oft been referred to as a 'classical opera of harmonic sophistication'!
Brian Wilson's collaboration with Jack produced possibly 'the greatest arrangement of all time', and it is a feature of his 'The Full Life' album.......if you can ever come across a copy - grab it........ 'cos it's a real classic!
When Jack gave us the same arrangement on Saturday, one could have heard a pin drop. The lyrics are stunning alone - with his delivery........riveting! The lengthy, melancholy, 'soprano-like' conclusion, adds weight to those 'operatic' comparisons!

'The Man from La Mancha and The Impossible Dream!' Jack 'owns' this song. True, many have recorded it with some success, but Jack's version leaves all others floundering in its wake! When he hit that final, 'ridiculously-high', never-ending note, I'll swear we all wrapped hands around our vino to buffer against glass shattering!

Frankie Laine and his pianist Carl Fisher wrote 'We'll Be Together Again'. Jack closed the evening with this song, and his interpretation seemed to convey: 'This is not Adieu, but Au Revoir'.......let's hope it will be very soon!

Jack,

I have a great feeling you've been singing longer than I have been alive but let me tell you, your mastery allows me to TOTALLY connect with your songs, be they covers or originals. Long story short, "Wives and Lovers" was introduced to me a few years ago but it wasn't until "I've Got Your Number" surfaced that I remembered the name. I have been going back through your catalog ever since and will be buying "I've Never Had it So Good" thanks to that INCREDIBLE version of "God Only Knows" which we were treated to at your awesome shows this past weekend at Catalina Jazz Club in LA. As a younger fan, I really really appreciated taking my girlfriend and watching the master at work. Your "It was a very good year" was STUNNING and who could have expected "The Man of La Mancha!"

At any rate, I will stop rambling but they way you worked the crowd and commanded your voice are just two of the reasons you are a true legend and a treasure to the music community. Kudos to you and your amazing band and I am so glad I happened to check Catalina's schedule to make your Saturday nite show! Hope you do get to put out a book with your incredible career--I'd be first in line to buy.
Best regards sir!

Mike Landers

P.S. If you ever need a writer, I'm pretty sure I know a guy who could fit the bill and would gladly work for peanuts. Or at least maybe a slice of bread. haha.

Dear Jack,

I grew up in Palm Springs, and during my junior and High school years, my parents and I would go to the Palm Springs Police Show, where you and all the stars performed outside. (including Phil Harris, his wife Alice Faye, Frank Sinatra, (who gave me three autographed albums when my dad (a doctor) did an insurance exam on him, Rose Marie, and many more! One year, Rose Marie fainted on stage and my dad sprinted up to the stage to help her. I remember how great you were then and was surprised to see that you are still performing, since my husband just saw an ad for your performance at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood this weekend. We will try to go! I can't believe over 50 years have elapsed, and you are still going strong! Kudos to you!!

Best,
Carol
