    Falcone, Vincent Jr.

    Arranger, conductor and pianist who collaborated with Rosemary Clooney on The Last Concert and Sentimental Journey and went on to forge a creative partnership with Frank Sinatra in the late ‘70s.  He started out as Sinatra’s piano player in October 1977, and a year later he assumed conducting duties.  Vincent served in both capacities on Frank Sinatra’s 1979 boxed set, Trilogy.  In 1980, he led Sinatra’s orchestra in a series of concerts at Albert Hall and Festival Hall in London, England.  A year later, they embarked on a South American tour that took them to Buenos Aires, Argentina and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Shortly thereafter, it was back to the States and another one of Sinatra’s favourite venues, Atlantic City.  In 1982, he arranged, along with Don Costa, the cuts on Syms By Sinatra, a collaboration between Frank and Sylvia Sims, with Frank wielding the baton and Sylvia covering some of his songs.  Occasionally, Vincent strayed from the Sinatra fold, although never very far, especially on projects such as Steve Lawrence Sings Sinatra, on which he plays piano.  You can also hear him on the keys on Walter Boenig’s Lot of Us.  He also took up the baton on Paul & His New Age Jazz Orchestra Cacia’s Legacy:  The Last Sessions.  For more detailed information on the multi-talented Mr. Falcone, check out his autobiography, Frankly, Just Between Us—My Life Conducting Frank Sinatra’s Music.
