Tony Bennet on Frank Sinatra At the Paramount: Phenomenal Fan base

Below there is a clip I got off sinatra.com. It is from the DVD portion of the upcoming 4 CD/DVD Sinatra: New York.

The four CD set is a compiliation of Sinatra in concert in New York City. The following is an excerpt from a pres release on sinatra.com

“Frank Sinatra may have been born in Hoboken, New Jersey, but the Chairman of the Board always held a special place in his heart for the city that never sleeps, “The Apple,”as he called it. From a surprise appearance with Tommy Dorsey in 1955 to a 1990 concert at Radio City Music Hall, Sinatra: New York follows the singer onstage at various iconic New York City venues, living out one of his most famous lines: “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.”

“The 71 previously unreleased performances gathered here (55 on CD / 16 on DVD) capture the singer giving his electrifying best, reminding listeners why Sinatra’s celebrated baritone has been hailed as the “The Voice.” The set, produced by Charles Pignone, features deluxe packaging with rare, never-before-seen photos, tributes from Martin Scorsese, Tony Bennett, Yogi Berra, and Twyla Tharp, liner notes by Nat Hentoff, and essays by William Friedkin, director of The Exorcist and French Connection; George Kalinsky, official photographer for Madison Square Garden for over 40 years; Tom Young, engineer for Sinatra; Joe & Sal Scognamillo, owners of Patsy’s Italian Restaurant in New York City; and Frank Sinatra Jr.

“Sinatra: New York begins in February 1955, at the Manhattan Center, where Sinatra made a surprise appearance with Tommy Dorsey and his band during a concert celebrating the group’s 20-year anniversary. Sinatra, who first became a star singing with Dorsey in the early ’40s, sang a trio of his biggest hits with Dorsey.

The final CD is drawn from a June 1984 sold-out Carnegie Hall show and a June 1990 Radio City Music Hall show where Sinatra performed with an orchestra conducted by his son Frank Sinatra Jr.

Sinatra: New York also includes a DVD containing the singer’s June 25, 1980, concert at Carnegie Hall.”
