My View: Jilly’s, Patsy’s, Feinstein’s/54 Below & Robert Davi

Back in the day Frank Sinatra refused to sing in New York City nightclubs because the NYPD required you to be fingerprinted if you worked in a cabaret.  Luckily that law doesn’t exist today because I’m sure Robert Davi would have also thumbed his nose at NYC and we would not have heard his tribute show to Sinatra at Feinstein’s/54 Below last night.   There are lots of singers who sing “like” Frank and recreate some great music, but with Davi you also get the same exhilaration in the room that Sinatra generated. 

Like Frank Sinatra, Robert Davi is a great actor, which is an important component to his effectiveness as a singer.  Don’t expect an impersonation of the Chairman of the Board, but do expect to feel the electricity when Davi opens with “I’ve Got The World On A String” and continues through  the Sinatra Song Book.  Feinstein’s/54 Below is a few blocks away from Jilly’s and Patsy’s but it was ground zero for that era’s swinging music last night.

One more chance to see Robert Davi tonight (May 17) at Feinstein’s/54 Below
