Congratulations, Frank D’Rone!

Congrats to Frank D’Rone-what a week! Started with his interview on http://wdcb.org/, in advance of his appearance at the Chicago Jazz Festival, and praise from Howard Reich, pre-eminent Chicago Tribune critic:
…The great Chicago singer

this year turned 80 and released arguably the best recording of his career, “Double Exposure.” You’d think that would merit a slot on the main stage, but the programmers of the Chicago Jazz Festival deemed otherwise. Even so, D’Rone never should be underestimated, as he showed during a recent, brilliant run at the Jazz Showcase. 2:20 p.m. at the Jazz on Jackson Stage
…This is a big year for Chicago singer D’Rone, who turned 80, turned in an indelible engagement at the Jazz Showcase and turned out possibly the best recording of his career, “Double Exposure.” Too bad he’s not being featured at night on the festival’s main stage, where he belongs. 2:20 p.m. at the Jazz on Jackson Stage…
The revered Chicago singer Frank D’Rone celebrated his 80th birthday with glowing vocal tone and relentlessly inventive singing…D’Rone sang poetically in “When Joanna Loved Me” and aggressively in “Just One of Those Things” …
The audience was quite large and enthusiastic and gave Frank a standing ovation at the end.
From the Chicago Sun-Times 9/3: “Crooner Frank D’Rone mellowed the vibe after Stein, serenading two ladies in particular in the press pit. One of them was his wife, who he confessed acts as a lyric prompter should he forget any words. ‘Make Someone Happy’ from D’Rone’s new disc, Double Exposure, seemed to speak of their relationship. The 80-year-old singer scatted breezily along with his lovely guitar playing, particularly evident on the chestnut “All The Things You Are.” At the end of Frank’s performance, he was surprised with an award from the City of Chicago, a commendation from the Mayor, Rahm Emanuel. Thanks to all involved especially Joyce McGinnis and Jazz Festival board member, Neil Tesser. Very nice!!!
