Robert Davi Sings At Vibrato In Los Angeles

Robert Davi at Vibrato Jazz October 2014
Robert Davi - James Bond villain Franz Sanchez in the 1989 film Licence To Kill - returns to Herb Alpert's Grill Jazz for another performance singing some of Frank Sinatra's classic songs.

Robert Davi is an award-winning actor, screenwriter, director, producer, and what many are finding out, an extraordinary jazz vocalist, as stated by many, including Quincy Jones: "As FS would say, 'Koo, Koo.' Wow! I have never heard anyone come this close to Sinatra's sound – and still be himself. Many try, but Robert Davi has the voice, tone, the flavor and the swagger. What a surprise."

From his portrayal of James Bond villain Franz Sanchez in “Licence to Kill” to FBI profiler Bailey Malone in “Profiler,” Robert Davi is one of the film industry's most recognized tough guys, whether on the big screen or on television. Interview Magazine has called him “a latter-day Humphrey Bogart” and GQ Magazine has compared him to silver screen classics Robert Mitchum and Lee Marvin. His tough exterior masks a powerful inner sensitivity, which he calls upon for his most notorious roles providing complexity to characters even where, initially, it was not present. This entertainer always gives passion and heart to all he does. One has to only listen to his debut music album, Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance (Fontana/Universal Music Group), to experience it.

Davi has always loved to sing and entertain. At 15, he received acclaim for his voice, having been awarded First Place in the prestigious New York State School Music Association Solo Competition. As a young adult, he studied under several top vocal teachers including the legendary Tito Gobbi, Dan Ferro of Juilliard, Samuel Margolis (who taught Robert Merrill) and most recently, renowned vocal coach Gary Catona.

In October of 2011, Davi released Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance (produced by Grammy award winning producer Phil Ramone) to rave reviews. Within weeks of its highly anticipated release, the album soared onto Billboard Magazine's Top 10 Jazz Chart taking the number 6 spot for several weeks.
