CD Reviews

Skanatra
Gary F. Carson | San Bruno, CA USA | 11/22/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard of Skanatra during the credits to the movie "What Planet Are You From" the song "High Hopes" is played. I liked the fun whimsical way the song was done. I waited until the movie came on again and this time saw the name of the artist Skanatra listed and immediately looked it up and purchased the album. Being A Sinatra fan since I was 9 years old I had to have this one for my collection. This album is a great alternative way to hear some of Frank's classics done in a different style it's fun to listen to and gives whole new meaning to the songs performed. I would recommend this album not only to Sinatra fans but anyone else who likes Ska music or the classic songs of Sinatra. Very enlightening and I hope they record some more Sinatra tunes."
A laugh riot!

"I caught these guys at the Five Spot in Philly last Saturday night. The show was a riot and their CD captures their raucous, island, lounge sound. Take one part Sinatra, one part Marley, add a dash of Ramones, add a twist of excess, and shake and you've got Skanatra."
This would get Frankie dancing..

"Sadly last night was Skanatras last concert!
On the Hoboken waterfront with New York City as the backdrop the band had folks dancing from ages 2 to 80, and never was "New York, New York" sung in a more spectacular setting!
Great fun - Great music and a very happy time!
This album has their best moments - "New York New York" and "High Hopes" are worth the price of admission alone!
Even if you are not a fan of Frankie this will get you moving.
Thanks Skanatra - You will be missed!"
