Sinatra Century is a hell of a whiskey; if you've got $500 to spare, there are far worse ways to spend it. But this whole package feels to me like the Sinatra estate flipping the bird to the people who simply love his music. Let's hope some altruistic soul puts this show online for the masses as a sort of return salute.
Before Frank Sinatra died he gave a bunch of music to his long-time musical director Vincent Falcone and said, "Vinnie, just keep the music going, that's all." Honoring Sinatra's wishes, Bob Anderson, deemed by People magazine as "America's greatest singing impressionist," is performing at The Palazzo Theatre in Las Vegas in Frank: The Man, The Music.
But the premiere was a night for celebration, and not only for Sinatra. Turns out, director Alex Gibney, with his recently aired Going Clear, his film about the Church of Scientology, broke records for HBO. So after the 2-hour first half of Sinatra, a happy crowd filed into Porterhouse for Italian themed specialties of burrata caprese, filet mignon, spumoni and cannoli in abundance.
