Greatest crooner…..Dean Martin or Al Martino?

This one really has me stumped. Dino was much more charismatic and lively on stage, while Al basically just stood there and sang, but singing with such an incredible voice, you didn’t want Al to do anything else which might distract you from his singing. These 2 guys in my opinion are the greatest crooners ever. Try as I might I can’t pick a winner here.

This is a really bad joke. Mel Torme wins.

Harry Anderson would agree.

Mel Tormé is really in a different category. I’d give it to Dean Martin. Great voice, but also lots of charisma. A sonofabitch as a person, but a terrific entertainer.

Actually PJ, from most of what I’ve heard, including his own daughter, Dino was a pretty happy go lucky guy in private life as well as public life.

The greatest crooner was neither of these guys. It’s between Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra.

Bing and Sinatra were both incredible singers as well as actors, but for just pure singing ability I’d place them slightly below Martino, Dino, and maybe Vic Damone. On the plus side both Sinatra and Crosby were much better actors.
