Sinatra Sings Sinatra
If you cant 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 dads legacy (either favorably or condescendingly), and now Junior, whos reached the ripe age of 62, is shifting through Seniors repertoire for Sinatra Sings Sinatra, a show with the Houston Symphony. Hell dust off My Way, Ive 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 originals swagger as Junior doesor 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.

Oct. 12-13, 8 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 14, 7 p.m., 2007
