 Welcome!

 

For the last year and a half I've been working on a wonderful project called ¡Oye Frank! 

Its a 100 year anniversary tribute to Frank Sinatra, with a Latin twist. Crafted in Mexico by Colombian, Cuban and Dominican musicians.

 Produced & arranger : Felipe Saray

  

I'm honored that the main man who had the original idea behind this project, executive producer 
Joaquín Fernández Esquivel, asked me to be the vocalist. I've known Joaquin for the last 15 years. We worked together in studio when he was a young engineer.  In that 2 year period of sessions he got a chance to know me and my own music.
Joaquin went back to Mexico City and became a sucessful A&R man for Warner Mexico.  He has worked with Grammy winners Jesse & Joy and many other artists.  Now with his own company, Setiment Records, he asked me to do the lead vocal for Oye Frank. 

 

It's a full circle for me because I was doing some of these same classics songs  40 years ago

when i was three years old...;).

 

 Please take the time to read on and I hope you 

 download this beautiful Record/CD. 

With your help one by one. It would be a dream come true to do this high energy show LIVE In LA! The Roxy! The Greek!! Ok Hollywood Bowl. ;)

  

Thanks you!
