In a Sinatra Kind of Mood

Hello Happy People,

Thought I’d share my musical mood with you this morning. I’m all about fellow December baby Frank Sinatra (December 12). His voice and charm still lives on today, and I’m proud to admit that Old Blue Eyes is one of my favorite jazz singers.


Take a listen to The Jonathan Channel to get a taste of Sinatra.
