An attempt to write in the style of "The Rat Pack," Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.

With the exception of the vocals, everything was generated by BIAB.

Hello Bluzgtr. You have set the bar very high and reached above it.
This fits the genre and era very well.
Congrats to you and the vocalist. Rob

bluzgtr,

Welcome to the Showcase.

Nicely done. Good mix. Really like the punch in that walking bass.

Dave has a great voice for the style.

Enjoyed.

Cool, Smooth, Laid Back.

You have really delivered what you set out to achieve.

This is a great production.

Hello, Bluzgtr

An attempt to write in the style of "The Rat Pack," Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.
Yes, it was done very well and successfully.
This tune reminds me of "Engel Eyes" of Sinatra.
As floyd said, Dave has a great voice for the style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

I love this era, and you have done it so well!! Very cool write, and arrangement and vocal are wonderful. Loved it! Come back often!! Take care. Greg

We listen to a zillion genres and this is one that is rarely heard on the forum. You gotta have a great vocalist and production chops to take on a project like this and you pulled it off...very well!

We enjoyed it.

What a nice compliment. I've never heard that phrase before, and I like it.

About a half-century ago, I was living in Los Angeles. I met two men from the Australian television industry. They used to sail up to L.A every 6 months to buy programming. They had a keg of Australian beer mounted in the galley. That was when I learned that American beer was a wimpy, pallid product.

Somewhere in my archives is one I wrote called "Funky Chicken." Yours is better.
