Dean Martin v Frank Sinatra

17 posts in this topic

Don't want to do a poll as it only gives you a count.

 

I love Dean Martin's voice, it always seemed to have a depth and a hidden smirk.

 

Sinartra just always seemed to be going through the motions, technically good but personality zero.

 

These guys were classic singers of their time, but who was the daddy ( jump in Sammy Davis fans )

sinatra was at his peak in the fifties

I'm a big swing fan and some of Sinatra's arrangements are swing classics.  But I don't like his voice or his way with a song. I'm not keen on Deano either TBH. I didn't like Sinatra's imitators either - Bobby Darren or Matt Monroe.  I like Billy Eckstein and Sarah Vaughan's "Perfect Strangers"  I like Ella, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Julie London.  I like Crosby better than either Martin or Sinatra - but not that much.  Speaking of band singers - which is how Sinatra started out I do like Al Bowley.  His "Love is the Sweetest Thing" is a classic and he can also be heard on the soundtrack of "The Shining"

sarah vaughan was wonderful.

My Auntie Brenda was i to her and Ella Fitzgerald, and she could sing all of their stuff: still does and she's 85

Al Bowley was a great singer

Dean Martin before Sinatra anyday.

 

Last year BBC 3 or 4 did a series of his tv shows.  Live singing with a live band - sounded just like on the records.

He should have stuck to the double act with Jerry Lewis. Only people of my vintage will remember it :ph34r:

I prefer the songs that Sinatra sang apart from high hopes

Martin sang the songs that Louis prima turned down...not literally but you get my drift

'Sinatra at the Sands' is a superb album, with Frank accompanied by the Count Basie orchestra under the direction of Quincy Jones. But the singer that really does it for me? Three little words - Nat. King. Cole.

Never keen in cole's diction

But like Sinatra he sang great songs apart from lazy hazy crazy days of summer

Btw

Was that a David Brent impersonation?
