Frank D'Rone


Frank D'Rone (16 de mayo de 1938), is an American jazz singer and guitarist. He grew up in Providence, Rhode Island, moving to Chicago in the late 1950s. D'Rone achieved success in Chicago clubs, attracting the attention of such jazz luminaries as Oscar Peterson, Stan Kenton and Nat King Cole. His first album, Frank D'Rone Sings, was released in 1959, and included liner notes penned by Cole himself, who later helped D'Rone earn several appearances on the Johnny Carson Show in the 1960s and 1970s. An album with arrangements by famed producer Billy May, After the Ball, was released in 1960.
D'Rone was a performer at the famous hungry nightclub in San Francisco, where he recorded a live 1962 album, In Person. His style was praised by jazz critic Will Friedwald as possessing a "forties-type voice" reminiscent of Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole, with "all singing from the heart and no put-ons." D'Rone continues to record and perform to this day, with a new recording, Falling in Love With Love, in the works.
