Frank Sinatra: Concert for the Americas (1982)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Frank Sinatra took part in the August 20th, 1982 music festival in the Dominican Republic that hosted five thousands people in an open- seat venue. Sinatra, performing with the Buddy Rich Orchestra, does a very good job as it's clear he's in good form and appears to be having a very good time as he goes through some of his classic songs as well as some nice covers.

At this point in his career he certainly didn't have the same voice that people fell in love with decades earlier but don't let that fool you. The voice on display here is still quite fantastic and still manages to get all the proper emotions from the songs being sung. We get classics like I've Got the World on a String, I Get a Kick Out of You, The Lady is a Tramp, My Kind of Town and Theme from New York New York. Also on hand is a nice sequence where Sinatra does Send in the Clowns and Quiet Night of Quiet Stars with Tony Mottola on guitar. Another great performance comes from a cover of The Beatles Something.

Again, Sinatra appears to be having fun singing the songs and he certainly has a wonderful presence on the stage as he walks around with that mic and there's no doubt that he holds your attention throughout.
