    Just curious if anyone else here likes to throw on some Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or Nat King Cole while puffing on a pipe.

    I enjoy many styles of music, but when I'm having a pipe I like to listen to them the most.

    I like a little Sinatra from time to time. Especially when I am in a good mood.

    I love all the crooners, I'm primarily a Bing fan, but lately I've been on a Dino kick. I've about ruined several of my old Dean Martin records from overplay recently.

    I enjoy Nat Cole from the Trio days.

    Being this is the 2nd music related topic I am responding to today, the other was the metal thread. I have eclectic choices in music. From Metal to Big Band. Depends on the mood. But yes, I like the crooners too.

    I listen to all three--they're in my iTunes along with lots of other jazz from their eras. If I had to rank the three, I like Nat best, then Dean, then Frank. My morning radio station always plays three in a row by Frank around 7:30.

    Dean and Nat yes. Frank no. Nat died at his peak, Dean retired from singing when his voice was still good. Ironically, they both died as a result of smoking (cigarettes). Frank could just barely stay on pitch when he was young, but as he got older it became pathetic. Same with Bing.

    Love King Cole and like Dean Martin very much. Sinatra was best in the late 30s and early 40s. Just heard a recording of the Lester Young trio from 1943 or 44. Lester Young, King Cole and Buddy Rich. It really was good. Mr. Young (Pres) was the big star of that group and of the entire era, in my opinion. He never could understand why, during WWII Glenn Miller got to play music and he had to tote a rifle. Don't get me wrong Bradley, I love Glenn Miller too, but Lester young was in a class by himself. The uncredited originator of the cool sound and the greatest sound ever on a tenor sax.

    Best pipe music by far. I also have pandora set to the Sinatra channel on Sunday mornings while I make pancakes for my kids. It just sets up a relaxing day for me. I also love this guy.

    I lean towards Dean. His music is great, while smoking a pipe or not!

    I have fond memories of my dad driving around on Saturdays and listening to an all Sinatra radio show on the AM stations as a kid.

    This is my favorite Sinatra song:

    Love 'em all, but I think Bing Crosby deserves a spot on this list as well. He was on of the reasons I got into pipe smoking in the first place. I grew up listening to all these guys. My grandparents would play them whenever we came to visit as kids.

    They defined "cool" for a whole generation.
    tombraider- if you're a Johnny Hartman fan then his album with John Coltrane is a must. Beautiful ballads with both at their best.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Yes I have very eclectic taste myself, metal to classical and just about everything in between. Quite fond of the "Chairman". Dad's a big fan and Frank and the "Big Bands" always played in our house while grownin' up.

    I grew up with my grandparents so, yes I loved those guys. Frank was great the way he delivered a song... but Dean was a much better singer. But Bobby Darin...that guy was amazing... died way too young. he could belt out a song. Don't forget Marty Robbins... man what a voice... and a life. I'm only 42, and a child of the 80s, but love those old crooners.

    Bobby Darin is one of my all time favourite singers. Have you seen the "Beyond the Sea" movie with Kevin Spacey? The plot is convoluted but I think he did a great job of recreating the performance scenes. Great music to relax and have a drink to. Or dance with a lady if you're feeling especially classy!

    I am a big Dean Martin fan. My mother was loved him so much she named me after him. Frank is Frank. I could listen to either Frank or Dean sing the telephone directory.

    Frank is one of my favorite artists, to be honest. I was around my grandmother a lot when I was young and she always played Sinatra. I hadn't heard it for a while and one day my mom was watching the show where frank Sinatra has Elvis come sing in his military uniform, and I remembered how much I loved that music. Going to listen to some after work today and sit down with a good pipe

    Love Nat from the trio days. Sinatra would be my least favorite of all of them.
    Im frustrated as billy joel has taken over my 40's channel.

    Lets us not forget Dinah Shore...I could listen to her talk for hours,sings pretty good too.

    Tombraider- that video rocked. I am out on the patio smoking some 4noggins Chipman Hill in my Edwards Bulldog as I happened upon your video. I just switched my Sirius channel from Octane to both the 40's channel and Siriusly Sinatra. Thanks for the perfect transition sir.

    Cheers

    I am likewise a fan of Frank, Nat and Dean, and I would add Bing and many others from this Golden Era of music. I typically listen to SiriusXM 40s Channel or the Red Sox when relaxing on the porch with a pipe.

    I too am a big fan of all of them.

    Have quite a large collection of Dino's stuff on CD. Wish I had some originals on vinyl. The scratches and pops would add so much to the experience.

    Timeless and old school.

    Bing is fantastic. "Holiday Inn" is one of my favourite movies, but thanks to the blackface routine it isn't politically correct and hardly anybody ever wants to watch it.
