"In addition to being an excellent singer who is equally skilled at swingers and ballads, he is also a skilled songwriter" - Scott Yanow (Jazz Historian)
"Frank Lamphere and Rat Pack Jazz performed at my party and sounded phenomenal!" - Jill
"He has a strong and appealing voice, records music that is more jazz-oriented, and his phrasing always results in swinging vocals" - Scott Yanow (Jazz Historian)
Quality? Within moments of Frank taking his microphone, many listeners say to themselves, "Now, this guy can really sing!" Resonant, in-tune, distinctive, yet traditional and intentionally swinging. The band playing behind him? Awesome! They're some of the top players in the biz! Originality? Not ANOTHER (thank goodness) fedora wearing Frank Sinatra or cigarette clenching, Dean Martin karaoke-copycat. The entertainment business is full of those. Rather, Lamphere is a pro singer-entertainer that performs jazz standards in his own style. His goal? To capture the Rat Pack musical vibe;rather than attempting to imitate it, note-for-note. He leaves that to the others. Frank Lamphere fits this musical genre like-a-glove.
Recordings? Talk about prolific! Lamphere's fourth album Now, THAT'S Amore!, a 14 song album was released in September 2023 and it's receiving great reviews. A unique Frank Sinatra song tribute disc Frank Songs, My Way isexpected in early 2024. A full length disc of Dean Martin covers will follow.
Wide appeal? People of all ages are very appreciative of a classic Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra number, sung well and in that "elusive" traditional pop style. Versatility? Lamphere's realistic interpretations of rockin' Elvis, soulful Tom Jones, and confidence exuding Bobby Darin numbers, bring non-jazz listeners into the party. It's quite unusual for a vocalist to "transcend" musical genres so well; Frank Lamphere does just that!
International? Lamphere sings in Italian, French and even some Spanish.
Songwriter? Frank Lamphere continues to make an impact around the world with the release of his top-notch original recordings. His latest album (2023) Now, THAT'S Amore contains 14 tracks of which four are originals and include: I'd Like to Come Back to You and Do You Like What You See?
Available for performance worldwide Frank Lamphere, without exception, performs with a live band of 3-18 musicians. No background tracks. No drum machines, ever!
Now, THAT'S Amore! Released on September 25 2023
January 2021 "Congratulations on another album replete with fantastic vocals, world-class musicianship, and top notch, hard swinging arrangements! This album is as good as anything out there" - Ben Dockery
