Thread: Jerry Vale and Frank Sinatra

  1. #1

    Jerry Vale and Frank Sinatra

    A new article Feb/2006 in Palm- Springs- Life about the singer Jerry Vale, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.

    Instead of using quotes I suggest you look at the whole thing.

    What do you guys think of it ?

    Thanks for posting this, Anton. I didn't get to read the entire article 'cuz I have to get going soon, but so far, it's great.

    You have excellent taste, Zia, Jerry's one of my favorites too. But you knew that.

    Very nice listening is Jerry Vale singing Carlo Donidas " Al Di La ", the English version of this very beautiful Italian love song.

    BTW Conny Francis did also a fantastic job singing it.

    Another good one is "Non Dimenticar".

    For those romantic evenings with Italian vino rosso.

    "Non Dimenticar".

    Still remember Dean Martin spoofing that song:

    "Non Dimenticar....means I don't got no car............'
    My heart.

    Smile Jerry Vale and Frank Sinatra

    Good early part of February afternoon from a part of The American Midwest-USA:

    Anton, I read the whole article and loved it...thank you very much. Jerry Vale is another one who has a pure honest voice....It was sad to read about the Dean Martin part...It was wonderful to read about how nice FRANK treated him (Jerry) refreshing.....

    I'm glad I clicked in....
    The journey's long, much longer that I reckoned, in any throng, I'd know her in a second......

    Please don't blame Dean. Read it more carefully.

    Thumbs up Jerry Vale..

    Another great Italian-American singer of the 50's and 60's who was born in the Bronx. Jerry lived on Magenta Street right behind the high school I attended "Evander Childs" on Gun Hill Road in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.
    He's a credit to his family and craft, love you Jerry...

    Thumbs up What a great article.

    It is heartwarming to read this story .
    ...Knowing that Jerry Vale loved and respected Frank and cared to go that extra mile to make Frank feel better in his later days is just wonderfull.

    "Your getting to be a habit with me"...Sinatra Now & Forever!

    Great article thanks Anton, it's a shame Dean didn't get the whole story, I don't think his reaction would have been the same. Wonderful to read about Jerry's relationship with Frank, what a lucky man.

    Anton, Very interesting reading...thanks so much. As I read Jerry Vale's comments about Frank, I was thinking to myself, "That's our man!" Somehow I'm not surprised about Greg Garrison. The Dean Martin TV show dvd's/tapes are great to watch, (the real shows, not the roasts), but Garrison keeps popping up, pretty much saying the same things from one volume to another, bragging how the show was a disaster (with circus animals and the like) till he took over and added girls. Since he apparently owns the rights to the shows, one thing you can't say is he was dumb! (How did Dean let that happen, anyway?)
