With this performance, we will show you how Frank Sinatra rose to stardom, fell from grace, and came back, multiple times to be the most iconic entertainer of the 20th Century.

Dale Head (dalehead.net), a jazz and blues powerhouse vocalist and trumpet player, today announced that he will be celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the voice of the 20th century, Frank Sinatra, by reviewing 40 years of his amazing career. “From his early days to his retirement in 1972 and his comeback in the Main Event, Frank Sinatra lived a life of legends,” said Dale Head. “With this performance, we will show you how Frank rose to stardom, fell from grace, and came back, multiple times to be the most iconic entertainer of the 20th Century. Using photos, videos, creative narration, and recreating some remarkable vocal duets, our goal is to give you a taste of what it might have been like to be in the studio at Capital with Nelson Riddle, in the audience at the Sand with County Basie and Quincy Jones, or finally at Madison Square Garden when none other than Howard Cosell introduced Sinatra as a boxer making his comeback in the Main Event.”

Sinatra-A Retrospective is a 2 hour show that encompasses 40 years of Frank Sinatra’s amazing life. From his first big break in 1939 with Harry James, through his controversial move to Tommy Dorsey’s band, and then the years at Columbia, his fall from grace, then his resurgence winning the Oscar for “From Here to Eternity,” and his signing with Capitol Records and the legendary pairing with Nelson Riddle and Billy May. The show also focuses on his work with Count Basie and Quincy Jones, and television specials and duets with luminaries such as Ella Fitzgerald and Natalie Cole. Frank Sinatra retired in 1972, but then returned in a huge comeback concert at Madison Square Garden, with none other than Howard Cosell introducing him back into the ring in the Main Event.
