America the Beautiful, Swinging – Frank Lamphere’s New CD
November 20, 2020– Veteran jazz crooner-songwriter-recording artist Frank Lamphere has released his third CD "America the Beautiful, Swinging". The sessions were recorded with a group of world-class jazz musicians and include his original compositions Las Vegas and the swinging baseball song The Cubs Go All the Way. The balance are unique covers of: the patriotic America the Beautiful, Jobim’s Meditation, an almost funky-swinging Born Free and two versions of the Bacharach-David This Guy's In Love With You in ¾ time. One version sung in the familiar English and the other in Italian.
Frank Lamphere is a professional singer in the highly specialized genre of straight-ahead jazz and especially, traditional pop. (Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Jack Jones) Vast portions of his performances and repertoire are presented in a "small group-big band" style and always, with a live band.
Frank's musical journey began at a young age, singing along to the records he collected, on his "record player". While in his late-teens and early 20s opportunities to sit-in with local bar bands and mini sets with a wedding band were a great introduction to performing in front of a live audience. As jazz-swing began to take on a greater role in his musical direction, Lamphere "found" pianist Billy Pierce and began frequenting jam sessions. Lamphere earned some steady club work with the Johnny Gabor Trio, after which he formed his own band and took on lots of club work and corporate jobs. Despite his commitment to musical performance, Lamphere has a "day job". Deck carpenter-contractor and owner of A-Affordable Decks, 28 years in business as of late 2020.
In 2002 Lamphere recorded a thirteen-track album "Ain't Love a Kick" a tribute to lyricist Sammy Cahn, that attracted national attention. The follow-up studio project was a five song EP of original songs "Frank Swings" in 2012.
Career highlights include: singing for regional radio and television commercials, headlining numerous shows across the country with gigs from Las Vegas to New York to Milan, Italy. The song I Never Forgot from his CD "Frank Swings" was featured prominently in the award-winning independent film Theresa Is a Mother. Frank is hired across the U.S. to perform his specialty "Rat Pack Jazz" for fundraisers, music fests, wedding receptions, private holiday parties and product unveilings; including the Frank Sinatra special edition Jack Daniels whiskey.
Lamphere is married and has two children

"Off the cuff and swinging, spectacularly!" "Has a powerful yet effective voice that switches from romantic balladeer to 60's pop star, on a dime!" -Nightclub Review Magazine
"The Latest In a Long Line of Neo-Sinatra's and Really, One of the Best" - Mr. Lucky Magazine
"Frank, you knocked 'em dead Saturday night, again!" - Music Agent
"His voice, now more than ever before, is a wonderful blend of masculine strength and smooth, rounded edges. Rather than sounding like someone who is hesitant, Frank’s style embodies bridled strength. It’s classy, it’s powerful, but it’s never rude or unkind" - Ben Dockery
"He seems more modeled on the casual Dean Martin manner, especially in lazy, slow tempo where he slurs and sloshes some vowel sounds"
