Vic Damone

One of the prototypical Italian-American crooners, Vic Damone parlayed a smooth, mellow baritone into big-time pop stardom during the ’40s and ’50s. Early in his career, his inflection and phrasing were clearly indebted to Frank Sinatra, who once famously called him “the best set of pipes in the business.” Overall, though, Damone’s style was softer [...]

Tony Bennett

Tony Bennett is an artist who moves the hearts and touches the souls of audiences. He’s the singer’s singer and has received high praise from his colleagues through the years, including Frank Sinatra who stated unequivocally, “Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business.” He is an international treasure who was honored by the [...]

The Rat Pack

The so-called Rat Pack wasn’t a group in the normal sense, but consisted of a loose confederation of actors, comedians, and singers lumped together by the media under that name in the early ’60s. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford formed the core of the Rat Pack, and they [...]

The Hilltoppers

The Hilltoppers, had a very inauspicious beginning. They began as a vocal trio with the members being Jimmy Sacca, Seymour Spiegelman, and Donald McGuire who were students at Western Kentucky University in the town of Bowling Green. One of Sacca’s acquaintances was a pianist in a territory band in the area named Billy Vaughn. A [...]

The Gaylords

Back in the late 1940s in the east side of Detroit, Michigan, three young neighborhood teenagers met and discussed their love of music and their own dreams of someday becoming part of that profession. They got together through their association with a CYO youth group at Our Lady of Sorrows church. After high school they [...]

Sophia Loren

(born September 20, 1934, Rome, Italy) Italian film actress who rose above her poverty-stricken origins in postwar Naples to become universally recognized as one of Italy’s most beautiful women and its most famous movie star. Before working in the cinema, Sofia Scicolone changed her name to Sofia Lazzaro for work in the foto-romanzo, popular pulp [...]

Sergio Franchi

Italo-American singer Sergio Franchi was much more than an entertainer; yet it was as an entertainer that he was known to the wide public, with a voice that was equal to Mario Lanza in beauty and phrasing. Amercian show business got hold of him, but Franchi had years of classical training behind him and did [...]

Rosemary Clooney

Born May 23, 1928, in Maysville, Kentucky. The distinctively unpretentious, deep, rich, and smooth voice of Rosemary Clooney earned her recognition as one of America’s premiere pop and jazz singers. According to Clooney’s record company press biography, Life magazine, in a tribute to America’s “girl singers” named her one of “six preeminent singers … whose [...]

Nicola Paone

Nicola Paone, who died Christmas day at age 88, had a career as the sauciest of Italian singers before settling down to run one of the top Italian restaurants in the city for 40 years. To Italian immigrants of the 1940s and 1950s, Paone was the troubadour responsible for sentimental folk songs like “Uei Paesano” [...]

Nat King Cole

Nat “King” Cole conquered the pop charts in the Fifties and early Sixties as a warm-voiced singer of orchestrated ballads like “Mona Lisa” and “Unforgettable” and breezy, countrified sing-alongs like “Ramblin’ Rose” and “Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer.” Less well known is the fact that he played a mean piano (in the style of Earl [...]
