大卫歌颂西纳特拉

After spending more than half of his lifetime making movies, Robert Davi has released Davi Sings Sinatra - On The Road To Romance.

在花了超过一半人生拍摄电影后,罗伯特•大卫终于发布了专辑《大卫歌颂西纳特拉-浪漫的旅途》。

“Coming from an Italian-American home you know there are two figures that you look up to - The Pope and Frank Sinatra, and not necessarily in that order,” he says.

“我来自一个美籍意大利人家庭,你知道有2个人我必须要敬仰——教皇和弗兰克•西纳特拉,两者间并没有必然的顺序。”他说道。

According to Davi, Sinatra’s star power on both the stage and screen made a lasting impression.

按照大卫的观点,西纳特拉的明星形象在舞台和银幕上都有着持久的影响力。

“Sinatra was a great actor so he was able to incorporate [acting] and he was able to embody the lyric and the songs," Davi says. "The diary of his life was in his songs and you need to live to hear these songs, to experience these songs; the classical quality of his voice, which transcends the moment, you know that amazing tone.

“西纳特拉是一位伟大的演员,他能够将自己的表演融入到各种曲风中去。”大卫说道。“他的生命轨迹就在自己的歌曲中,你只有亲身听到这些歌曲,才能感受这些歌曲,感受他的声音所带来的震撼,你知道那令人惊异的音调那一刻超越了一切。

“I just love language and I was encouraged as an early kid (‘You should put him in the arts, he’s talented.’) And then in the 8th grade my voice came out and once that happened I started to become obsessive about the voice and acting at the same time, and sports," recalls Davi. "I was playing sports. I was playing football. I was first place in New York State School of Music Association’s solo competition in singing, and first place in New York State for dramatic interpretation. So it was a concurrent thing. And then, in 1977, I wound up doing my first film with Frank Sinatra.”

“我天生钟爱语言,在我孩童时期受到了鼓舞。而在8年级时我的嗓音开始形成,自此我开始变得沉迷于声音和表演,同时也对体育运动有一种独特的爱。"大卫回忆着。“我很喜欢运动。那个时候的我很喜欢在足球上挥洒汗水。我是纽约公立学校的音乐协会的个人唱歌比赛和戏剧表演比赛的双料冠军,而这是并行的。然后,在1977年,我的第一部电影就是与弗兰克•西纳特拉合作。”

Davi made his acting debut alongside Sinatra in the 1977 television movie Contract On Cherry Street. Since then, he’s appeared in more than 100 films and TV shows, including Die Hard, License To Kill and Criminal Minds.

大卫的与西纳特拉的表演处子秀始于1977年的电视剧电影《樱桃街》的合同。从那时起,他出现在了100多部电影和电视节目中,包括《虎胆龙威》,《杀人执照》及《犯罪心理》。

For his first outing as a recording artist, he turned to the Great American Songbook and some of the most romantic melodies of our time.

这是他第一次担当拍摄的艺术家,继而他转向了《美国伟大的歌曲》并给我们带来了最浪漫的旋律。

“For me music is a way to bring us together, to say, ‘Hey, this is a great country.’ And that’s the other thing, the love of country, the romance with America," he explains. "It’s not just the romance between two people, but it’s a romance with us as Americans and love for our country.”

“对我来说,音乐使我们走到一起,可以这样说‘嘿,这是一个伟大的国家。’这和其他的事,对国家的爱,美国的浪漫是一样的。”他解释道。“这不仅仅是两个人之间的浪漫爱情故事,这是与我们美国人的浪漫,这是一种对国家的爱。”

Davi recently completed a screenplay titled The Voice, about a singer driven to succeed by his fascination with Frank Sinatra. He describes it as “a musical journey through a man’s obsession with song.” Davi will appear in the starring role.

大卫最近完成了《声音》的电影剧本,讲述一个歌手在弗兰克•西纳特拉的鞭策下成功的故事。他形容这是“一个痴迷于歌曲的人的音乐之旅。”大卫将出演该影片男一号。
