Singing the Songs of Frank Sinatra with the Ryan Quigley Big Band
In the mid 1960’s, Magic was made on the stage of the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, when the timeless cool of Frank Sinatra met the robust swing of the Count Basie Orchestra. Sinatra at the Sands has remained a beloved classic ever since, the perfect marriage of old-school pop and big band jazz.
Singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers has been bringing those worlds together in his own music for the last three decades which makes him the ideal man to reinterpret Ol’ Blue Eyes’ cherished repertoire for modern ears. Now, with a top notch Big Band, Stigers captures the rare alchemy of hipness, elegance, playfulness and feeling that made Sinatra’s renditions of these songs immortal while adding his own unique twist.
Think: “Come Fly With Me”, “I've Got You Under My Skin”, “My Kind Of Town”, “You Make Me Feel So Young”…
