Two-time Grammy Award winner and Emmy winner, Jack Jones, will celebrate Frank Sinatra’s birthday with a live interview on Sirius Radio’s Siriusly Sinatra, the 24-hour home for all things Sinatra and the Great American Songbook. Grammy Award winning vocalist, Steve Tyrell, will host the three-hour show on December 12 with a variety of special guests, including Jack. Jack is currently aboard the Pacific Princess celebrating Princess Cruises’ 50 th anniversary with the original “Love Boat” cast.
Jack’s new album, Seriously Frank, celebrates the life of a man who he not only deeply admired but with whom he developed a close and long-standing friendship. December 12 marks the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Francis Albert Sinatra. Seriously Frank is a collection of songs selected by Jack that he feels accurately reflects the life, times and career of Frank Sinatra. The album features a 22-piece band with arrangements by the great Patrick Williams, one of the great arrangers of our time.
Just before he retired, Sinatra publicly said, “Jack Jones is the next major singer in show business.” Frank Sinatra, Jr. and his dad gave Jack two of the greatest compliments of his life. “One of the major singers of our time,” said Frank Sinatra. “He has the best voice, and he has made the best use of that voice… Jack has always been an excellent singer and is probably the best of all of us,” said Frank Sinatra, Jr.
“I am honored that Steve Tyrell so generously requested my appearance on Siriusly Frank,” said Jack Jones. “Frank made an immense impact on my life and you can see the direct reflection of that on my newest album, Seriously Frank. I am looking forward to sharing some of those memories during my time on Siriusly Sinatra.”
