Sinatra and Varg once coexisted in this world. A thought I had in the shower. Huh.
This is happy Sinatra. It's refreshing and pleasant and very very corny but romantic so its cute and groovy at the same time. Solid.
This is a fun and upbeat album. I'm not sure if it breaks any new ground, but it's an enjoyable playthrough with a few standouts like I've Got You Under My Skin, Makin Whoopie, Anything Goes. In fact the more I think about it, I think each song is a solid 6.5 - 8, making this one pretty consistent.
Hey, swinging lovers, Frankie is here, pulling with such confidence some standards out of his pocket, some standards that will eventually lead you, with Nelson Riddle's playful arrangements, straight to the dance floor.

Frank Sinatra's acclaimed follow up to "In the Wee Small Hours" is less conceptual and moody than that album, but it's crisp big-band production and catchy melodies makes up for it. I can't say I necessarily enjoy this more than "In the Wee Small Hours" as i'm inclined to the more thematic content, but I can certainly understand why Sinatra fans consider this his greatest album
