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
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. ;)

¡Oye Frank! Sonata Latina Tribute Orchestra opens up a whole new chapter in
Frank Sinatra's history, with the release of a very unique homage album. Just
imagine some of his all-time classics blended with latin rhythms such as salsa,
mambo, cumbia, wawancó and cha-cha... Welcome to the world of ¡Oye Frank!
Crafted in Latin America by an all-star production team and session players,
this record is nothing but delicious news for all salsa and latin jazz fans. The
record paints various emotions within its repertoire with colorful harmonies,
lyrical hues and artful dimensions.

your latin soul.
Led by all-American L.A. Singer-Songwriter BillyKent, also featuring the wonderful vocalist Tina Aldana on the duet “Something Stupid” the orchestra's cheerful
and romantic sonata train takes you to every stop of the sound landscape of
their instruments; ranging from a rhythm section with congas, bongos and timbale
to electric and baby bass to a sax-trombone-trumpet brass section, kindly
assembled with the harmony and percussive poetry from producer's Felipe Saray's
upright acoustic piano.
