Do you ever come to the Wahington DC area? I would love to see you. I love your voice.


PS - maybe you should set your guest book to US then UK as that appears to be what most of the people who right are from. Not really sure what the last four posts are about.

Hello my darling Hope all well over there. Tomorrow will be 3years since I saw you in Vegas, can you believe it. It was so wonderful to see and hear you again some things never change. I think you must have mesmerized or hypnotized me or something ized me 40 odd years ago for as soon as I see you my World becomes beautiful again. Thanks for all the wonderful songs I missed a couple actually the mouse arrow missed them. It goes all over the place at times. Your Imagine/From a distance is Powerful nobody can follow that also your Without a song' as Dean would say 'You are singing too good' Great impersonation of Dean spot on my love. What now I wonder, well whatever the party wants so will it be. I wasn't well for a few weeks even though I still listened in, to my favourite man in the World, apart for 2 nights had to go and lie down. One aches inside so much, when one loves someone for so long and only has a few moments of great happiness with that person and it never dies no matter how many years go by. I love you so much. Take care stay safexxxVXXX

That just about sums up Jack's long-awaited return to California's Orange County on Saturday, October 28th.
In the past he's spoken regularly of 'sensing' the nature of his audience, and how that can slant the tone of his performance. Before he uttered a word, the packed house at The Irvine Barclay Theatre enthusiastically let him know how pleased they were to have him back. And boy, did he, Christian, Chris, Kendall, and 'Wild Man' Paul, respond in kind.
Up and down, on and off the stage, Jack mingled with his guests, mixing lyrics with greetings, hellos and jokes, and even trading good natured ribs about his flowing white mane with a super, fun-loving gentleman, himself the owner of a fine, polished dome!

Jack opened the show with his 'Sound of Music' medley, and swiftly moved into 'Sing for Your Supper'. The highly acclaimed 'Seriously Frank' album does, and always should, feature prominently in his program. 'Teach Me Tonight', 'For Once In My Life', and the Sinatra philosophy 'All or Nothing at All' - we've seen and listened to Jack perform these numbers several times in the past, but regularly, there will be a subtle, but still discernable arrangement variation. After the concert I mentioned this to Christian who confirmed that they are constantly 'tinkering'.

Jack's good friend Pat Williams arranged and orchestrated the 'Seriously Frank' collection. In 1968, he did the same for the 'Where Is Love' album; as an addition to his regular program, Jack sang the title song.

'Wives and Lovers' is always fun, for Jack goes down and roams around the audience doing just that - having fun!
Then he immediately drew us back into a silent, very romantic mood with the beautiful, never ageing, Bergman's 'What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?''s one of his and wife Eleonora's, favourite love-songs.

Of course we were waiting for, and were treated to 'Without a Song', 'The Impossible Dream', and his semi-autobiographical 'I Am a Singer' - without their inclusion, there'd sure be a huge void in the evening. He did not disappoint, and all three, with their powerful climatic conclusions, led to standing ovations.

Of late Jack has reintroduced the Paul Williams 'Isn't That What Friends Are For?' ballad into his program. From his 'Harbor' album, it has long been one of my favourites. Take a moment, take note of the lyrics, for therein lies a message.....'we miss friends the most when they're gone'. A poignant sentiment - and quite demonstrably shared by the 'friends from Orange County'!

Within the audience was a friend of Jack's: celebrated bandleader, composer, and brilliant saxophonist, Tom Scott. And how his nimble fingers danced across the pod-caps of his sax as he accompanied Jack in the 'Botox' spoof of 'Girl Talk'.
Not finished, he remained up on the stage for a truly rousing 'Well Alright, Okay, You Win', which featured amazing solos from Tom, Christian, Chris, Kendall, and 'Wild Paul Lowden'. This song brought the house down.....or perhaps it was up! For not a soul remained in their seat after the final chord!

Calming things down afore the riot police arrived, Jack closed the evening with the Frankie Laine 'We'll Be Together Again''s now his adieu song, beautiful, but it 'allus' seems to come around too soon!

General consensus at concert's end.....truly incredible!
And as a postscript, it needs recording that during the show, a lovely gentleman, seated in the front row, introduced himself as....'Jack Jones'! Accompanying him was his young grandson......another 'Jack Jones'!
So, on Saturday Oct. 28th, we were treated to 'Three Jacks for the price of One'!

To repeat: WOW!

Hello sweetheart, Only me again, no doubt you will be getting tired of my writing to you, or maybe not! As always I trust you are staying well and behaving yourself, just joking about the behaving or, am I. It is very late here nearly 1am but had to check in with you before I retire. Seems I go on this Laptop later and later so I really must start listening to my one and only favourite singer, a bit earlier. Seems I am going to Dublin for Xmas, this was not on my agenda, however, Gary the gay guy who used to work for me in my restaurant, in South Africa 1993, phoned and said I must go over there instead of being alone in this place. He has paid for my ticket, most kind of him so I will be in Dublin's Fair City. I have been there before and I do quite like the place, certainly more than I like this place where I am at present. See you have a gig coming up on the 28th October well baby Break a leg you will be as amazing as ever and I will be thinking of you, of course I am always thinking of you anyway. I get really upset as I am always looking back to the Happy times and not realizing certain things, it has devastated me and I do get down and there is nobody to turn to, but I do have some respite when I listen to you and don't you Ever fly away before I do, you are my life. I love you xxx I should not be writing all this Vx x

Hello my love Hello my love, an echo Somewhere from a distant shore. I am glad you are safe as I was worried when I heard about the terrible tragedy in Vegas and so many poor souls losing their lives and hundreds of injuries, all due to a demented person. I cannot understand how someone could become like that. My deepest sympathies go out to all the families. Now I see all these Wild Fires devastating California, I hope to God you are not near that. Oh so many horrible things going on. You must always stay safe. I still listen every night to all your songs and I really love the 'double up sound', quite unique. I know this sounds selfish but I wonder, after you have done the next rounds over here, will you just disappear again? I would find that really difficult to cope with! Sometimes, I think that you think that I never shed a tear well not so. Over all these years had I encapsulated [if that is the correct word} all my tears and released them all at once, they may have created a new Ocean. You don't know my side and also nearly all the songs I choose, I send the lyrics back to you from me my darling. Better end off and remember I don't only love you I am in love with you, always have been.Take good care of yourself and your family. Yours forever V.xxxxx

Hello my beloved I am back from Slovakia. I must Trencin is a really nice place so clean lovely architecture and beautiful tree lined streets.I think Roman and Kate picked up a bit with my visit, so I did the right thing, it was good to see them again. How are you? Hope everything is well with you. I see I have sent you so many letters and I notice they are still around when I scroll down, is that normal or not? Well my lap top seems to have changed some how since I was away. Every night after I have viewed and listened to you I go to bed and think, how is it possible that you Never seemed to get one of my letters that I have sent to you over the years, it really upsets me. I only ever got one returned to me that was in 2012 from the Rrazz Room. I had been giving info from a friend whom I had asked to find out about you (I didn't have Internet)
gave me some Hotel tele:No. in San Fran. phoned from South Africa and the lady told me that The Rrazz Room had moved premises, she tried to find the address and eventually gave me it, thanked her and then I posted the letter, 4 months passed and it came back Return to Sender wrong address obviously. Oh and I did sent your a beautiful card and letter to The Palladium May 2013 not that I knew that it was a 'Farewell Tour' was not given that info.It was for our 40th Anniversary of our 1st meeting May 73.I phoned The Palladium and got all the address etc. I only knew it was a Farewell Tour when I came back to this place and got Internet for the first time April 2014 that was why I came to Viva Las Vegas as I thought I would never see you again. I knew you didn't get when you asked me if I came to the 2013 Tour. Oh if only so many things I should have had, like Internet but I thought you were married forever to your previous lady and only discovered that you had parted in November 2011, so you see what happens when one assumes. I have written loads of songs to you over the years anyway here is the 2nd verse of a very commercial song I wrote to you many many blue Moons ago. I sang a counter melody to a Barry White song that one Baby keep on or something like that ok. and of course it doesn't rhyme. LOVE love love 'If you have a fear I'll help you through it If you have a problem please turn to me Now don't be afraid to love me darling 'Cause I'll love love love you baby till my dying day. Ok I had better end (Oh the last sentence is not part of the song. Goodnight my one and only love Vxxx

Oh I have this feeling about someone assuming something that is not right I may be wrong of course. I have a number of male platonic friends most of them are gay. Gary used to work for me in my Restaurant in S.A. and so I met his friends Derek etc. Of course I am sure you are not interested in this but I thought I would tell you anyway. I wish I could make a comment on the songs I listen to but I don't know how to do it. Thank you for the beautiful Hollywood Musical do wish I had, had a script for that. It is the best of the best and I can't put down what I want to. Stay safe , be happy Forever V xxxx

Hello Dear Jack, Have I done something wrong I wonder. Read the Catalina write up and it sounds like the gig was tremendous. A great pity I could not be there but I did fly to Vegas also just for your two gigs. I would probably have been there if I had not had to organize a trip to Slovakia to see my friends Roman and Kate, married couple I knew in South Africa for many years and unfortunately Roman has Leukaemia and is not at all well. They were very kind to me in S.A. and I never forget kindness so I feel I should go. 11 days I will be there from early September. If I have done something to upset you then I am sorry, perhaps I am too forthright when I write letters, but I just write the truth, that's all. Please don't be angry with me. Take care best lovexx

The Catalina Jazz Club has long been a favourite venue of Jack's. With a tradition of promoting musical excellence, and a collection of faithful patrons ready and more than willing to demonstrate their appreciation for such, the Club provides the ideal forum for him to display his incredible vocal talents.

The Catalina was first opened as a jazz club in 1986 by Bob and Catalina Popescu. Prior, the premises (on Caluenga Blvd.) had been occupied by an Italian restaurant! Local jazz musician and friend, Buddy Collette, persuaded Bob and Catalina to 'reach for the moon' when presenting their inaugural performer. They took his advice; the great Dizzie Gillespie was their first guest. The house was packed, and since that evening, the Club has never looked back. In 2003, The Catalina moved to its current location on Sunset Blvd. where for nigh on fifteen years an impressive array of 'who's-who' jazz musicians have graced their stage.

Accompanied by Christian (Jacob), Chris, Kendall, with close friend Paul (Lowden) on the organ, to sold-out audiences, Jack guested there on both August 4th and 5th. I was fortunate enough to attend the second (Saturday eve), and what a blast it was!

He opened the show with his 'Sound of Music' medley which, with its redounding climax, immediately whetted the crowd's appetite for more of the same. 'Sing For Your Supper' is becoming a regular program feature. The song carries a particular nostalgia for Jack; from the film 'The Boys From Syracuse', it was the sole occasion on which both mom and pop, Irene and Allan, appeared on screen together.
'All or Nothing at All'; Jack's presentation never grows old, and true to form, it received a tremendous ovation. His album, 'Seriously Frank' of which that song was a highlight, was actually debuted at The Catalina, complete with a twenty-two piece band....many in Saturday's audience were there that evening - fond memories.
Jack completely owns both 'Without a Song' and 'I Am a Singer'; the one song just naturally feeds into the other - folks were cheering, clapping, and a-stomping at their powerful conclusions.

Famed jazz vocalist Deborah Silver recently released a new album, 'The Gold Standards'. which raced to the top of the charts. A prominent feature in her collection of 'American Songbook' hits, is a duet with Jack, the Gershwin brothers' 'I've Got a Crush on You'. Deborah flew in from Florida especially to perform, on both evenings, the number with Jack. They harmonized so perfectly together, it's a shame they had no time for more!

Jill Whelan, a cast member of the long-running TV series 'The Love Boat' (she played the captain's daughter), was in the audience. So naturally Jack sang its famous theme song. His current arrangement is so far removed from the original - this one truly rocks, and concludes with a bang!

Jack included a couple of his huge hits - 'Wives and Lovers', and 'Lollypops and Roses'. The latter he sang, at their table, to a Japanese couple who, not for the first time, had made a special flight from Tokyo to Los Angeles, solely to attend both of his concerts. Using their phone, they were able to video the entire song, thus providing them with a very special memento to take home.

Jack informed that singer/composer Paul Williams had been in the audience the previous evening; he then sang one of Paul's best, thought-provoking, and emotional compositions: 'Isn't That What Friends Are For?'. Each line, each phrase of this 'Poem' rings true, the more so with the manner in which Jack delivers for thought indeed!
Jack first included this song on his 1974 album 'Harbour' which, by consensus, was considered to be way ahead of its time. Fortunately, this song, and several others from 'Harbour', are included in the album 'I Never Had It So Good', which is available from the Official CD Store.
Also included in the collection is the Beach Boys' classical, semi-operatic 'God Only Knows'. It matters not which arrangement Jack chooses to use, an aura of mystique envelops whenever he sings it. Aside from the superb bass and piano solos of Chris and Christian, once could hear a pin drop...... until the final chord - truly mesmerizing!

'Well Alright, Okay, You Win'..... of late Jack has included this Joe Williams classic towards the conclusion of his concerts, and it never ceases to rev up audiences. Rousing solo sessions by Paul (organ), Kendall (drums), Chris (bass), and Christian (piano)add still more fuel to the fire of audience enthusiasm and participation - the 'old' Catalina shook as the song finished!

Calming things down, Jack closed with one of his favourites, Frankie Laine's 'We'll Be Together Again'.....his way of a fond 'Adieu, until we meet again'.

Look forward to it!

Hello again my dearest man on Earth. I do love all the songs that come up and I am sure you know how I feel about your singing by now, after all it is 47years since I was first introduced to you via L.A.Breakdown and the unusual event that occurred, which did come true. There are always unusual things happening when you are near believe me. Well tomorrow Wednesday is my birthday and I will be 3years 7months and 2days younger than you, I wonder how on earth did I get to this age so quickly! I will no doubt be celebrating sitting at this Lap Top, as I do each evening, listening to you which will be fine by me. I do miss South Africa in many ways, especially my home which I sold to come back here impetuous perhaps but I had to do it to get here. I didn't come back here for the great British weather shall let you figure out why I came. I am alone here I do chat to people where I have a coffee but that is it. I have not been in a relationship for a long time 13years, well that is a bit too long, but guess I am like that song with the lyric 'there's little old mixed up me' I gave up trying to replace my only love and there you have it. Hope I don't annoy you writing to you like this. Trust all is well and you keep strong, I do worry Goodnight my love xxxx

Hello Dearest Jack, How are you? Maestro of all singers. Thank you for all the wonderful numbers I am able to listen to each night, sure lights up my life. After hearing 'In all my humanity' Where do I Start etc., and with such immense feeling I now know the true inner you. I believe we are on the same page when it comes to the World and it's unjust ways. I was very young when I became aware and have always stood up for justice for ALL LIFE ON EARTH. One day maybe more people's minds will evolve to a higher level of compassion and understanding rid themselves of the bad emotions. Let's hope so. Thank you for being you Jack. Maybe next year I will find somewhere. Keep well Love you Always xxx V
