Mark Tremonti gives us a very nice and highly respected edition. The guitarist CREED/ALTER BRIDGE is known for his particularly rich alternative heavy metal rock/rock. But what the man also masters is his flawless performance as a singer. Mark shares the legacy of none other than Frank Sinatra and cuts a great character in doing so. Just remember the all-consuming attempts ROBBIE WILLIAMS made to swing. The British boy cheater greatly surpassed himself when he tried to elevate the pop classics of the 1940s and early 1950s.
There can be no doubt about it with “Mark Tremonti Sings Frank Sinatra”. The American interprets his countryman as if he had done nothing else. But exactly behind these carefree offerings lies precise preparation and perfect consistency. Backed by a large group of instrumentalists, rock in every sense of the word kicks off. The bandleaders and parts of the musicians are still from the old Sinatra band. A particularly sought-after standard like “Wave” (that baritone!) or well-known songs like “Fly Me To The Moon” are perfectly entertaining. “My Way” is arranged in an interesting way. In place of orchestral lard, dominant guitar gains new facets of big song. One cannot help but stress it again: what Mark Tremonti personally achieved here is truly more than remarkable.
The big motivator is undoubtedly Mark’s daughter Stella. The little lady is affected by trisomy 21, known as Down syndrome. As a longtime Sinatra fan, one thing has led to another for Tremonti. Frank Sinatra was known throughout his life for his charitable work (returns are estimated to be around $1 billion!). The rock musician has also linked his long-cherished love to star creation among jazz singers for good reason. Proceeds from “Mark Tremonti Sings Frank Sinatra” will benefit the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS). Keep in mind that charitable foundation in the United States has historically been based on private participation, and there is no European-style welfare state. Tremonti can only wish all the best for this project!
