  1. Here’s a strange take on Frank Sinatra. Actually, it doesn’t remind me of Frankie at all, but I like these guys. They’ve got a good sound based on contemporary Gamelan and a lot of 20th century percussion music, but they stay tuneful and usually groove.

    He meant it to be a sexy solo when they were a couple, but it’s a little …weird

    “It’s all right with me” – Frank Sinatra, in good voice , and Juliet Prowse,
    with no voice and no opportunity to dance, either.


    Later in her career, with Dean Martin in a goofy number, Prowse does get to play funny.
