I wrote about Frank a fair number of times when I was a critic for the Chicago Tribune (1977-88). He was never less than excellent, great guy too. His ability to improvise wordless vocal and guitar lines in unison has to be heard to be believed. There was/is a certain spark to Frank's music that lifts the soul.

Larry Kart:
Thank you for your comment and your kind words in the Tribune and now. I appreciate them so much. Hope all is well with you, Larry. I send you all good wishes,
Frank D'Rone

Great stories! Wonderful to have talent!

Frank has a new album due to be released in October 2011 (Whaling City Sounds) . Half of the tunes are with a big band (charts by Phil Kelly) and the other half with Frank self-accompanied on guitar.
