Biography

Brent Jay Spiner is an actor and broadway performer best known for his role as Lieutenant Commander Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He made his musical debut in 1991 with Ol’ Yellow Eyes is Back, an album of classic pop standards. The title is a parodic reference both to Frank Sinatra’s Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back and the Data character, whose eyes are indeed a golden yellow. In the liner notes, he writes of Sinatra’s “You Make Me Feel So Young”:

Sinatra at his awesome best. This song and dozens of others accompanied every dinner I ate between the ages of five and thirteen. My stepfather, an amateur saxophone player and a hell of a mambo dancer, had put together one of the all time great collections of popular music recordings anywhere. So, to my good fortune, we dined each night with the likes of Ol’ Blue Eyes, Judy Garland, Nat “King” Cole, Rosemary Clooney, Louis Prima and Keely Smith and every other singer that ever performed on Capitol, Decca or R.C.A. records.
