ROBERT DAVI - DAVI SINGS SINATRA: ON THE ROAD TO ROMANCE
The project came together under the guidance of Disney Music Group Chairman Bob Cavallo and was produced by the legendary 14 time Grammy® Award winning and 33 time Grammy® nominated producer Phil Ramone. Recorded with a thirty piece orchestra at the famed Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where Sinatra recorded many of his albums, Davi Sings Sinatra has all new arrangements by Nic Tenbroeck and was engineered by Dan Wallin. It was mixed by the incomparable Al Schmitt, who has 18 Grammys and more that 150 gold and platinum selling albums to his credit. States Schmitt: "Robert sounds like he's been singing these songs all his life. His phrasing and uniquely beautiful baritone voice blend perfectly with the arrangements and the result is what great music is all about."
As an actor, Davi has been compared to the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum and Lee Marvin. He has worked with the biggest names in Hollywood, from Marlon Brando to Clint Eastwood, appearing in such movies as Die Hard, Showgirls, The Goonies and considered one of the top three Bond villains of all time in License to Kill. His television credits are just as vast, starting with the hit NBC television series Profiler and continuing with Stargate: Atlantis and most recently Criminal Minds. In making his directorial debut and starring in the 2007 award winning film The Dukes, about a one-time rock stars now on hard times, Davi showcased his singing ability. However, it was his motion picture debut in Contract on Cherry St., which made the most profound impact of all—sharing the screen with Frank Sinatra. And now "it's time for me to go home," Davi says. "To spend time with my first love, singing and at the same time pay tribute to the legend who was my greatest mentor and the man who was very dear to me."
Backed by a 50-piece orchestra, Davi has been performing Davi Sings Sinatra to sold-out audiences and high critical acclaim in New York and Los Angeles. Forthcoming live performances include Los Angeles and Las Vegas. For further information go to http://www.davisingssinatra.com/.
