There was a time when singers of Italian descent were at the top of the popular music world. They appeared on early television shows like the Toast of the Town with Ed Sullivan. Names included Louie Prima, Vic Damone, Perry Como, Dean Martin, Julius La Rosa, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Buddy Greco.
They had a practiced kind of talent. Each had his own style and big smile. They were recognizably Italian. Those under fifty years of age likely never heard the voices of any of them. Those, like me, who are over fifty loved them.
However, nothing in entertainment remains popular forever. The television shows they appeared on began to be replaced as viewing public tastes had changed; dramatic series replaced live performance shows.
About the same time, classic night clubs featuring bands and big name performers were being replaced by disco lounges using recorded pop music. There was no interest in live vocalists (Italian or otherwise) backed by bands.
These voices from the past can still be heard on old vinyl records or streamed into your home from free or paid subscription music services. Those services are not all the same so study those differences before signing up. And then add some Italian voices to the mix; sing along.
