It’s not quite clear why Frank Stallone has chosen to pursue classic big-band crooning, nor is it immediately apparent whether his is purely a project of nostalgia or something more ambitious. Upon first hearing his latest release, In Love In Vain, one thing, however, becomes immediately obvious, namely the album’s undeniable quality. Supported by a series of shrewd Sammy Nestico arrangements, an orchestra committed to dead-on note placement, and excellent production quality, each of the album’s twelve venerable standards swin – and swing hard.

Frank Stallone switches gears on In Love in Vain, abandoning his pop/rock style to come on as a Frank Sinatra-style traditional pop singer. Stallone, an accomplished character actor, has studied the styles of Sinatra and especially Bobby Darin, and he avoids the usual mistakes made by rock singers trying to handle this kind of material. In particular, he knows to swing the rhythm rather than hitting every beat spot-on, and he works well with the orchestra led by Sammy Nestico.
