Jack. , this person V Wrighton whose Emails you receive regularly, must be very upsetting for you.

She writes of her love for you at a time when you were In a very strong relationship with Susan George. Has she any idea at how upsetting it must be not only for you but also for your many fans.

I hope she soon realises that life goes on. 45years is too long to mourn a lost love if indeed that is what it was.

I myself am a musician (Vocalist: baritone/tenor range) and I grew up listening to the many hit records of Mr. Jones here in the New Jersey/New York City metro area on WNEW-AM - and I am still to this day astounded at the beauty of his singing, the subtle elegance of his phrasing - and the profound emotion with which he delivers a lyric. Few, if any singers of our past - or modern era - can hold a candle to Mr. Jones. He was, and still remains; a musical hero to me and many countless listeners; both musicians like myself - and non-musicians alike. Keep doing what you are doing - and I wish you continued success for many years to come in all of your personal and professional ventures!

Your love touched my soul. C.

Catalina Club, July 2018

Two concerts; consecutive nights; same venue; similar programme content yet, entirely different shows! It's been said and written many times afore: Jack Jones rarely sings a song EXACTLY the same way.....twice! Perhaps influenced by his own mood at the time, the tone of the audience, or the surrounding environment, so he delivers the lyrics accordingly. At times the variations can be oh so subtle, at others, markedly noticeable. But irrespective, he never deviates from transmitting to his listeners, the full intent of the composer's message. A far cry indeed from the parrot-like repetitions we frequently hear from many of his contemporaries.
And so it was at Hollywood's Catalina Club, July 20th and 21st.

Hollywood....Home....from whence came his roots. So it was natural that he should open with Larry Marks' part-pleading 'LA Break Down and Let Me In'. This song is a feature on the brilliant Full Life album.
Over the years, many song-tributes to Los Angeles have emerged, perhaps the most prominent being Sinatra's 'LA is My Lady'. Forget all of those...most musical pundits agree that 'this singer-this song', leave all other melody-homages to the city, way behind, and flailing in its dust!

Superbly accompanied by Christian, Kendall, Chris and Paul, Jack did what he does best: 'Sing For His Supper'! Interspersed between such regular entries as 'Without a Song; The Love Boat; The Impossible Dream; The Sinatra Collection' and many more, were all-time favourites that included 'A Day in The Life Of a Fool; Midnight; She's Funny That Way', and Leon Russell's moody 'A Song For You'. A 'brace' of audiences soaked all in and lapped it up!

'Well Alright, Okay, You Win''s long been a number that 'Jack's Crowd' wait for with an anticipated enthusiasm. It fires them up - and one can bet there's gonna be hooting and a-hollering, and much foot-stomping! Saturday in particular, we were treated to an extra-long and brilliant organ solo by Paul, which set the crowd on fire.
Sadly, this song inevitably signifies that Jack is nearing the end of his concert - and so it was. For his programme 'Envoi', he once again sang the Frankie Laine 'We'll Be Together Again'. It's a fitting closure, being his own way of conveying: Till The Next Time.

LA Break Down And Let Me In....the Hollywood crowd certainly did welcome Jack 'home'....and judging by their reception, they may just make it a shade difficult for him to 'get back outa Town'!

Great Jack....just Great!

I have noticed that on Jack's itinerary for August it says simply "Record". Does this mean that Jack is recording a new album? Please, please, please let it be true! Does anyone know or have any information?

Hello My Darling, At last I can drop you a line. Been so busy with this move, a lot to organize and 'am pretty tired. Do hope everything well with you and your back much better. No I never saw that in the press, perhaps this area did not print it. I am sure if it had appeared here that one of my close relatives or Sandra my friend would have informed me, as they all knew how I felt for you and still do. Why are you still disbelieving me? I have told you the truth and the letter I wrote to you and handed in to the Stage Door girl at Kings Theatre 2016 covered many of the unusual happenings I experienced from the moment I took that LA Breakdown Album in my hand 1970 and all the strange things that happened thereafter, well, not all but almost all. The girl told me, after the Show, that you had received it, did you or did you not get it? Seems you never receive my letters or my card and letter I sent to The Palladium 2013 for our 40th Anniversary of our first meeting. I did not know it was farewell tour till I came back to this dreary place Oct.30th 2013.If you are not receiving my letters, where do they go? Anyway, you can take a dig at me, I know my nature and I sure do not have a Wooden Heart, far from that my darling, I am a very gentle person and who knows one day you may discover that for yourself. Tank you for all the wonderful songs oh I see I have said tank you instead of Thank you it must be the Irish coming out in me. I am not Irish but I was educated in Northern Ireland, Bangor County Down great place so much music around then and I attended a marvellous Private College. Those were really happy years I had my Drama, Dancing, Ballet, Tap and Acrobatic and I played piano, then I was whisked away to darkest Africa due to my brother's ill health. My Mother hada sister in Northern Rhodesia now Zambia, I was 13yrs old, that was a shock to me, a Bush town, however, Douglas my brother's health improved rapidly which was a blessing. Dry heat did the trick. I do not know why I am writing all this stuff to you, oh well you know me a bit ridiculous. So my beloved, please take good care of yourself and are you laughing now 'Cause I'm not xxxxxxxxxxx

March 3rd. Palm Desert

You just knew it promised to be a special night - from the moment one entered the foyer of the McCallum Theatre, with 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK' emblazoned across its walls, to the rapturous welcome Jack received when he strolled onstage to join Christian, Kendall, Chris, 'Wild Man' Paul, and on keyboard, special guest for the evening, Bill (son of Harpo) Marx.
EVERYBODY was clearly ready for a party, and Party we did!
Following his opening 'Sound of Music' medley, Jack quipped of having 'Sung For His Supper' for nigh on sixty years, and then proceeded to do so once again!
He featured several tracks from Seriously Frank including, of course, 'All Or Nothing At All', which thundering climax continuously brings audiences to their feet, as do favourites 'Without A Song' and 'Man From La Mancha'.
Naturally, with Gavin MacLeod (Captain Stubing) present, Jack tipped his cap and rocked the theatre with 'The Love Boat'.
'Where Is Love' has been a recent addition to Jack's regular programme, and this evening he also introduced the 1929 Neil Moret ballad 'She's Funny That Way', a song he'd included during the recent UK Birthday Tour. Another insert was the Brazilian-originating 'Morning of the Carnival', best known as 'A Day in the Life of a Fool'. Featured on the 1966 album Jack Jones Sings, Jack's interpretation was critically-lauded as one of the best ever!
And from the 'Liverpool album he gave us 'Dio Como Ti Amo (God, How I love You)'. This song was composed by Domenico Modugno who, incidentally, also sang it as the Italian entry in the 1966 Eurovision Song Contest.
Jack has long said that both his and Eleonora's favourite love song is Michel Legrand's 'What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life', and how it shows, for his delivery nigh on 'cracks', so steep is the emotion. He then sang another Legrand classic, the 1966 Oscar-nominated 'I Will Wait For You', originally from the French Musical, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
'Love Theme From The Sandpiper': a Johnny Mandel composition from the 1965 film of the same name, it won both a Grammy and an Oscar. It's been recorded by EVERBODY, Jack included, from Jack Sheldon's trumpet solo to the Central Band of The Royal British Legion! WE know the song as 'The Shadow of Your Smile. Jack and Christian's current arrangement of that classical and oh so romantic ballad, far surpasses ANY of the other one-hundred-plus versions already out there. It's the best that I and many others whom I spoke to, have ever heard. To me personally, it was the highlight of Jack's programme.
Back down amongst his audience, Jack belted out his own 'I Am a Singer', and on its powerful conclusion, Eleonora and daughter Nicole came on stage, wheeling a huge birthday cake that had Jack's portrait iced across its top. They then led the entire theatre, ushers an' all, into a cheery, celebratory chorus of 'Happy Birthday'.
An emotional moment indeed; one which clearly moved Jack. Amongst so many fans and friends, there was but one song with which he could close the evening out: Paul Williams' 'Isn't That What Friends Are For?', and those of us familiar with the lyrics attempted to keep tune and join in!
A truly memorable evening with Jack's voice performing mind-boggling acrobatics!
An evening, which if recorded would have made for a great CD but.... as a DVD, we'd all be enthusing on a MUST-BUY'!

Hello Darling, Hoping all ok with you and your family. I am moving flats this week the lady owner is selling so have had to find yet another place. I have got something not really me, but will have to do. I really wish I had not sold my home in South Africa, should have thought it through more and found another way to come to you, I really have lost so much in this overly expensive UK it's a Con Country believe me. I shall miss listening to my nightly numbers of you for a little while until Sky comes and sets it all up again. Move on 11th that's if I make it, I am so so very tired, hope I make it. Darling when I said if only you had said something I meant when we were in the HALEM Towers Sheffield. I was there 4 nights and the last night standing in front of you a hint would have been good, oh dear what a mix up and more to follow. Just know I would NEVER have done that, why would I lose the person I love most in the whole World - would that make sense No it wouldn't I need to come and talk to you and I don't know how to do that. There must be a way as I believe that you and I both have the right to know the Whole Truth and should anything happen to me before that happens, just know that I did not See the last section until the M8 and it was 1year later that I heard and I came to the Palladium but I was too late and so it goes on and still does.I told you once I would always be here (in the World) for you and that has Never altered and I am here in this World only for you, this is always in my heart.1970 that LP LAB came into my life and changed it forever. I would never hurt you my love forgive my ignorance and to think that all I ever wanted was to be happy with the man I love, how terrible is that so close and it takes decades to get the truth but at least we now know the truth' That is very important. Thanks for all the great shows, oh and you have a wonderful laugh On The Move T.BENN. As for the Wooden hearted Princess on Smothers is that me ? I would love to come and Smother you with my love. You take very good care of yourself from me to you babe xxxxxx

Hello my dearest, I do hope that the pain in your back has subsided and you are managing to cope. It is a terrible thing to deal with constant pain. I was very concerned about you at the Perth and Glasgow Shows but glad you have someone to care for you. Wish I could have cared for you all these years, if only I had known something, anything, but alas I did not. Never knew it reached that level with the other party. I think that is why I have been brought back to this dastardly little place, so dismal, dank and obviously I do not like it, however had I not come back I would have remained in the dark till I perished. I am glad I know things now and I have seen you again, other than that I have had a horrible existence here. I did not come to see you to upset you or your life, I was compelled to, purely due to my feelings for you. I was so happy to see you in Feb. and you sure came through for all your Fan's even with the pain and cold. I am about to move again early next month. The lady owner of this flat is selling it, so have to move, but, I was going to move anyway as this place is freezing never been so cold in my life, quite frankly I do not know how I have survived the Winter here. Got a flat in view, not really me but it will have to do, a big difference to my home in South Africa, should not have sold it, silly me. Oh well, will not be able to have my wonderful evenings listening to you until I get it all organized again, here's hoping. So my beloved please take good care of yourself and stay strong, Your one and onlyxxx

I am leaving for Palm Springs in the morning, (2-26) so I can be there Saturday for the show at the McCallum. I was invited to your after-party in the green room two years ago and I was hoping I could get an invitation again this year. I was going to piggy back on your invite from last time but when I started typing on it, it vanished. Technology! The reason I still had that old Email was because I was going to thank you and say how much I enjoyed the show, but there just were not words to say how wonderful I thought it was, how your voice has gotten so much stronger over the years. I was tongue tied for TWO YEARS. And I think I did embarrass myself when I met Jack. I was a babbling idiot. Guess I never grew out of the star struck stage. I'm sure you won't sing "If you ever leave me" huh. I consider that to be like honey being poured over velvet.
Looking forward!w
