"Davi Sings Sinatra is a superb love letter to the man who defined twentieth century popular music. It's theatrical, heartfelt, and beautifully sung, while incorporating a swagger and style that evokes Sinatra.
There are actors who can sing, and singers who can act and iconic screen star Robert Davi is known in inner circles as "the singer who can act". Davi, who studied opera as a young man, always intended to make singing his career, but as fate would have it his screen career took flight and there was no looking back. -Charles Granata, Sinatra author, producer and historian
"The most, at one time, that I worked with Frank was the 10 weeks straight in 1962 when, at the end of the time, Sinatra's voice was as strong and powerful as it's ever been. We have been rehearsing with Robert for just a few weeks and I never heard what I heard from him! The power that came out of his voice was stupendous! The Old man could sing but he never had that dynamic power in his voice." -Emil Richards, legendary Vibe/percussionist
"Robert evokes the ease of the Legend without coming off as a replicator. He makes these songs his own just like Dino and Mel did when they performed Frank's material." -Dan Aykroyd, world-famous actor, film producer and writer
