Now, THAT'S Amore! - Frank Lamphere's CD released September 25, 2023
Now, THAT'S Amore!
"Now, THAT'S Amore is arguably the swinging crooner’s finest recording to date. Frank Lamphere is a singer well worth discovering" - Scott Yanow
Hear lush ballads, shimmering Neapolitan mandolin, rich pulsating Hammond organ, a crazily good clarinet and accordion solo, powerful vocals, an almost oxygen depriving fast-tempo classic and much more...
Retro jazz crooner & occasional songwriter Frank Lamphere released his fourth CD “Now, THAT'S Amore!” on September 25, 2023. The album contains fourteen songs, four of which are originals. Of these originals, Do You Like What You See? is an energetic bluesy pop ala 1967 as is I’d Like to Come Back to You, a song with lyrics about the Vietnam war. Both songs feature jazz organ accompaniment, adding to their authentic-to-the-period sound. Think Happy, most likely inspired by national talk show radio host Dennis Prager, is a "small group big band" swinger whose message speaks of thinking positively. Frank does another take on his baseball song, now with a new home team The Braves Go All the Way.
Of the remaining covers, That’s Amore, originally from the 1953 Martin and Lewis movie “The Caddy” received a makeover and was converted to a jazz waltz, but still with plenty of Italian flavorings. Frank's unique rendition ofSpeak Softly, Love (The Godfather Theme) now a full-bodied swinger, should turn some heads.
Two Henry Mancini tunes: the very up-tempo Charade and the Latin flavored, vibe-tinged Slow Hot Wind found a place on the album. Another patriotic American song, found it's way onto a Lamphere album God Bless America, now a swinger. Surprise!
Bacharach’s 1967 Look of Love, a huge Buddy Greco nod in Around the World and the 1934 ballad For All We Know round out the album. This album was recorded over two sessions in March 2020 and February 2021.
