”Jazz on Tuesday” jazz with style.
Speaking of “style” – meet the man who invented “cool” – Frank Sinatra.
His life was filled with, buddies, brawls, Jack Daniels bourbon, wives and lovers, sex, scandals and starlets, political and Mafia connections, power, wealth and incredible generosity towards those who fell on hard times, including many who he had never met.
“TIME” magazine named Frank Sinatra “Entertainer of the Century” (that is the 20th Century”!)
