Sinatra Sings Sinatra

Jr. sings the songs that made Dad famous

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. This seems to be the approach Frank Sinatra, Jr. has taken with his career. Throughout his adult life, others have considered Sinatra an extension of his dad’s legacy (either favorably or condescendingly), and now Junior, who’s reached the ripe age of 62, is shifting through Senior’s repertoire for Sinatra Sings Sinatra, a show with the Houston Symphony. He’ll dust off “My Way,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “I Get a Kick out of You” and other classics for the three-night engagement. Say what you will about Frank Jr.’s small stature compared to that of his father (or Nancy, for that matter), but none of the Sinatra imitators out there have as much of the original’s swagger as Junior does—or as much of his DNA. Watch the kid swing today at 7 p.m. in the closing performance. Additional performances at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For tickets and information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. Tickets start at $28
Oct. 12-13, 8 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 14, 7 p.m., 2007
