Frank Sinatra

Frank Sinatra was many things in his time, a suposed mobster, actress, but first and far-most he was a jazz singer. Born in New Jersey in 1915 Frank found his first rise to fame in the early 1940s when joined with Tommy Dorsey a trombonists. However he decided to try to make his way solo and did so successfully untel the war hit. Frank would later go on to join the rat pack in the 1960s where he adapted his supposed mob connections and less then civil public appearance, that consisted of drinking, gamboling, and womanizing. It was all of this though that made Frank an icon of the era, and in many eyes he was a legend. However jazz in general theses days seems to be a fading genere. I honestly think though that if more people were exposed to artest like Frank Sinatra, it could make it way back into the spot light. So without further review here are some of my favorit tracks from Frank Sinatra.
