This program looks at how Frank Sinatra’s singing style, technique, and ability to illuminate set him apart from other popular singers of his era. Travel the streets of Hoboken in the 1920s, where Sinatra experienced the ills of poverty and prejudice. Learn how he raised the standards of popular music by bringing show music, and all the famous names associated with it, to mainstream America. Hear how his reading of songs advanced the discussion as to whether lyrics are poetry.
