2011-2012 Fine Arts Season Performance

THE SINATRA PROJECT

Presented In Partnership With KLRU And L Style G Style

Michael Feinstein—long a champion of the Great American Songbook—opens Texas Performing Arts’ 30th anniversary season by paying tribute to the ultimate interpreter of song, Ol’ Blue Eyes himself. The Sinatra Project is an evening based on Feinstein’s hit album of the same title. Backed by a 17-piece big band, Feinstein focuses on songs written for Sinatra that were never recorded during his golden years at Capitol Records, and includes classics such as Begin the Beguine, Under My Skin, Fools Rush In, I’ve Got a Crush on You, and many more. “For years I’ve had the desire to celebrate Sinatra’s musical sensibilities, but had no desire to copy the classic songs that he rendered better than anyone else. I wanted to explore his style of singing and his style of music,” says Feinstein.

“...Feinstein sang it in his signature style – a sotto voice approach that brought out the romance of the lyrics.”
