at The Cutting Room:

 

10 AM
WILL FRIEDWALD’s CLIP JOINT presents:
"SINATRA: THE RIDDLE CONNECTION"
, a compilation of rare clips from the singer's rarely-seen (and never reissued) 1950s TV series, concentrating on Sinatra's unique relationship with his most famous musical director, Nelson Riddle.


12 NOON
A SPECIAL PANEL of professional and personal associates of Mr. Sinatra, including a special focus on his relationship with his original "rabbi" Manie Sachs, including private home movie footage of Sinatra's 1951 wedding to Ava Gardner at the Sachs home in Philadelphia.


1:30 PM
MARISSA MULDER and JON WEBER perform A Man Alone.  A fresh interpretation of a classic Sinatra album from 1969, in which the singer, for the first time in his career, performed an entire album's worth of songs written especially for him, by poet and songwriter Rod McKuen.  This album, a relatively lesser-known work in the Sinatra canon, is nonetheless regarded as a masterpiece by Frankophiles.
