Those of us who were fortunate enough to attend Jack's Friday (March 4th) concert at the Palm Desert McCallum theatre received a rare 'two-for-one' treat - a marathon performance which he deftly split into two completely separate halves! The initial portion, Jack devoted to his most recent and much-acclaimed 'Seriously Frank' album, being accompanied by a multi-piece band that this particular evening, was conducted by the album's genius arranger, 'Patrick Williams'. Commencing with 'All or Nothing At All', Jack wowed the audience from the get-go with the song's seemingly never-ending high-note climax' The album tells the story, in Jack's words, of the Sinatra life and legacy as he (Jack, interpreted it - thus, the songs featured, were selected solely by him. 'It Was a Very Good Year' once again generated so much audience enthusiasm, the more so as Jack subtly changed its theme from a 'First Person' narrative to that of a 'Third', by simply substituting the word 'I' for 'He'......in essence, Jack provided us with 'The Ballard of Frank'. He also informed us that 'Patrick (Williams)' was a driving force in the addition of this number to the album - plaudits for that move! From a 'personal' perspective however, though I'd never even heard of the song until Jack included it into his 'Seriously Frank' collection, 'When The World Was Young' takes 'the biscuit' - is a real gem......listen a few times, digest the lyrics, and believe me, you'll experience a moistening of the eyelids. Jack concluded the show's first half with the touching 'Vince Falcone/Joe Cocuzzo' Sinatra eulogy 'The Singer'. Its lyrics truly capture the Sinatra legacy, discussing the 'Bogie and Tracy' friendships as well as the Caesar association. A fitting end to a wonderful show - save there was more 'yet to come'! 'Live in Liverpool' is an incredible album, and I know many who, like myself, listen to it over and over again. It was recorded 'live, but experience Jack's 'live-live' presentation, and it far surpasses the original - hard to believe, but 'tis a fact. And on Friday, still accompanied by the large band, we were treated to further icing on the cake! Jack commenced the second half of the show with 'Without a Song'. I doubt no other entertainer would 'ever' attempt this number had they ever experienced a Jack Jones rendition! Moving through most of the album, Jack brought the entire audience to its feet with the climatic notes from 'The Man From La Mancha - The Impossible Dream'.....had anybody smuggled a measure of chardonnay into the theatre, the glass would have shattered in their hands! As on 'Liverpool', Jack closed out the evening with Frankie Laine's 'We'll be Together Again'......let us hope that it is very, very soon!!! Those privileged, witnessed yet another magnificent performance by a consummate professional who so blatantly enjoys sharing (and amazing) his talents with others. A couple of days later I was chatting, by phone, to a friend and long-time admire of Jack who regrettably was unable to attend the March 4th concert: 'He's the best singer I know; has the greatest voice I have heard; and puts both heart and soul into every song'. Not my words (regrettably) - his alone......but then, who can disagree?

With the greatest respect,I must disagree re the Edinburgh Concert.My wife and I have been attending Jack's Concerts since 1972 and this was one of the best.It was good to have a big band back accompaniment for a change and the arrangements of the Sinatra songs were excellent. Jack's voice is changing-getting deeper with age-but this is not necessarily a bad thing and did not detract from our enjoyment. The second half of the Concert involved more of Jack's tunes and was thoroughly enjoyable too. I and a good few thousand others certainly hope that he doesn't retire!

How delighted my guests were to see your show March 04, 2016 at the McCallum Theater. The wife of my former husband worked for Barbara Sinatra ( when Mr. Sinatra was still alive) and thought very highly of Mr. Sinatra. Once again you preformed with great energy and heart. How much pleasure you have given us through the years. I have been following you since high school where we were in the same French class. Being in the same assembly, when Mr. Sinatra preformed for us, was a thrill for this teenager. How lucky for us you were inspired. How do you do it, still hitting those high note. Hope you continue to have great enjoyment life. A Uni fan. Judy P.S. Enjoyed your Catalina Club show in August. .

Jack Hope all is well with you and the family. I staged a regional production of La Mancha and i thought of you. I made the guy playing Quixote listen to your vocals of Impossible Dream, and i told him theres such humanity and life in his storytelling. I suppose sometimes you can't teach that, but i tried. I just wanted you know that it was an honor to tour and perform with you on Man Of La Mancha. Those memories mean the world to me. All the Best to you. Martin {Pedro}

In my opinion Jack is the best singer of all time. I'm 66 and have seen him live in England, got many of his recordings, and he has a fantastic voice, charisma and he was with Susan George. What a life !
