Frank Sinatra Jr. began his career in 1963 by fronting the Tommy Dorsey Band. Also having worked with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, the Buddy Childers Big Band and Pat Longo’s Super Big Band (in collaboration with Billy May), he has touched upon many genres and styles, from swing-jazz to pop. Later becoming his father’s musical director, he became influenced by the Sinatra body of work, being known for stellar performances of classics like "My Way", "New York, New York", and "The Lady Is A Tramp".

Though most see Frank Sinatra Jr. as little beyond the shadow of his father’s legacy, the reality of such couldn’t be further from the truth. An accomplished composer, conductor, and pianist, he has written and arranged a wide array of songs. He has released acclaimed solo albums like "Young Love For Sale", "Spice", and more-recently "As I Remember It". The latest release includes his full- scale tribute to notables like Cole Porter, Paul Anka, Hoagy Carmichael, Jerome Kern, and his father - Frank Sinatra.
