About WeeSmallHours
Operatic tenor Nathan Granner one of Sony/BMG Masterworks recording trio The American Tenors has put together a new band “The Wee Small, headed by avant-pop composer Jeffrey Rukaman.

The new group has been electrifying audiences with their new arrangements of Iconic Idols. First in the volume is Frank Sinatra.

Nathan Granner and The Wee Small take the 16 classic songs from Sinatra’s 1955 smash record “In the Wee Small Hours” and turn them into a triple dip pop show that is at once stadium rock fantasy, at second a delightfully humorous turn and at thrice is an emotionally impactful performance that leaves audiences gasping, cheering, thanking and wanting more.

The impeccably crafted arrangements of Jeffrey Rukaman are masterfully played by Gerald Spaits on electric and standup Bass, Scotty McBee on Drums, guitarist Greg Singleton and P. Alonzo Conway on percussion and a plethora (el guapo) of instruments, as well as Rukaman himself, also on a number of instruments and Nathan Granner, who is his own instrument.

From Tibetan Monk to David Coverdale to Torme’ or even Sinatra or Buble’, not to mention the warm tone of his classical chops, Granner’s voice delivers emotion and words as if he’s lived every single note.

Track Name: Glad to be Unhappy(PMV Version) - Rodgers and Hart
Writer(s): Rodgers/Hart

Look at yourself, if you had a sense of humor
You would laugh to beat the band
Look at yourself, do you still believe the rumor
That romance is simply grand?

Since you took it right on the chin
You have lost that bright toothpaste grin
My mental state is all a-jumble
I sit around and sadly mumble

Fools rush in, so here I am
Very glad to be unhappy
I can't win, but here I am
More than glad to be unhappy

Unrequited love's a bore
And I've got it pretty bad
But for someone you adore
It's a pleasure to be sad

Like a straying baby lamb
With no mammy and no daddy
I'm so unhappy
But oh, so glad!
