Thread: Rat Pack Songs that have mandolin.

  1. #1

    Default Rat Pack Songs that have mandolin.

    I know that Dean Martin songs like "Volare", "That's Amore", and "An Evening in Roma" have mandolin.

    But...is there other songs by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis Jr. that have mandolin?

    I seem to remember a similar thread before, and the answer was that it was all Dino songs.

    If I remember correctly, there were a couple of more "Rat Packers", Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. Coincidentally, Joey Bishop was also a mandolin player though I've never heard any recordings by him. Anybody have some?

    Look at the bands behind the singers Los Vegas Show jazz bands ever see any Mandolins in them?

    Maybe Deano got a Mandolin for the recording session, but in the Live Band did they hire any?

    Probably Tommy Tedesco on a short-necked 12 string or on a mandolin tuned like the top 4 guitar strings up an octave on many of the tunes. He was all over LA produced tracks in the 50s-90s as part of the Wrecking Crew.
