That Rat Pack
Over the years, The Rat Pack have become the stuff of legend - hardly surprising given the identities of its principal members. The line-up was Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr with Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop making up the full compliment. Naturally, it is the first three mentioned above who are most generally known, each one of them a true legend in the world of entertainment and popular music.
Ironically, it is said that these icons never referred to themselves as the Rat Pack, prefering to call it The Clan. The group was centred in Las Vagas and its entertainment complexes of hotels, casinos and other venues. Enormously popular at the time, the clan and its members are today regarded as the epitome of cool by a new, younger generation of admirers.
In tribute to these giants of Hip, and to the swing genre in general, That Rat Pack delivers a definitive collection of swing classics, punctuated with a smooth cool humour reminiscent of the '60s masters who so inspired them.
