FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “My Kind Of Town” (featuring Frank Sinatra, Jr.) — Father’s Day Edition
For what turned out to be his final studio album, Frank Sinatra put out Duets II in 1994—a mere four years before his passing.
Joining him for a memorable rendition of “My Kind Of Town” was his son, Frank Sinatra, Jr. More than just a take-your-kid-to-work day, Frank Jr. was an accomplished singer and performer in his own right, before his sudden passing in 2016.
While Frank Sinatra the elder was famously born in Hoboken, Frank Jr. is a product of Jersey City—which means this duet about Chicago, with lyrics by Sammy Cahn and music by Jimmy Van Heusen, is delivered by two guys from Hudson County, New Jersey.
Happy Father’s Day to all.
