|Title: Come Fly With Me
Personnel: Frank Sinatra (vocals), Billy May (producer and arranger), various others...
Comments: Frank's first project with Billy May, this thematic CD centers around "places," featuring songs like, "Come Fly With Me," "Moonlight In Vermont," "April In Paris," and "Isle of Capri." This fun CD finds Frank in a festive mood, and the arrangements are light and airy as well!
Personnel: Frank Sinatra (vocals), Johnny Mandel (arranger) and various others...
Comments: The first release of Frank's new label, Ring-A-Ding-Ding! captures the vitality of the Rat Pack era, as the title phrase was one of Frankie's favorite at the time. Also of note is that the title track was written especially for Frank by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen. This is a bold an brash recording, the first in a long line released by Frank for his own Reprise label.
|Title: It Might As Well Be Swing
Personnel: Frank Sinatra (vocals), Count Basie Band, arranged and conducted by Quincy Jones.
Comments: This CD was the second collaboration between Basie and Sinatra and is accentuated with the string arrangements of Quincy Jones. When Frank and Basie team up, you know you've got yourself a winner!
