In loving memory of a true legend2015 is the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth – 100 years of swing and jazz hits that remain timeless. Matthew vanKan indulges in the songs and sentiment of one of the best-selling artists of all time and greatest singers of the 20th century – the ‘King of Swing’. Seeking to discover why Sinatra’s songs resonate so strongly to this day by stripping away the big band arrangements leaving them bare and exposed. Accompanied by pianist Joe Armon-Jones and bass player Nick Ereaut, Matthew finds his own personal connection with the lyrics, re-phrasing them playfully and wondering what modern day classics Frank might have attempted to cover had he been around today.
