This was the album that got me hooked on Sinatra 25 years ago when I was in my early teens. Maybe it was the cover showing a very hip Sinatra about to travel with a pretty girl to an exotic location. Maybe it was the absolutely perfect choice of songs (with the possible exception of "Blue Hawaii" which doesn't do it for me.) How many songs allow you to travel the camel route to Iraq or savor Autumn in New York? They truly don't write tunes like this anymore. Maybe it was the sparkling and witty arrangements by Billy May who proved on this album he could write strings as well as uptempo pieces.
Whatever it was, I have listened to this album hundreds of times and never gotten tired of it. You won't either. With its mixture of swingers and ballads, this is the perfect album to get someone listening to Frank.

A great Frank Sinatra album at his best vocally. Being a sound engineer I must admit a bit of dissapointment at the Re-mastering of this CD....Why push the volume up so much on these old analog recordings...I understand that everyone wants to be as loud as Diana Kralls last CD, but they souldn't do it at the expense or the overall sound....Fortunatly Sinatra's voice wasn't affected much, but the big band sometimes sounds a little distorted...I'm sure it didn't on the original LP.

I'm sure that most folks don't even hear these things....But there ya go.

Here's a lesson for rock music fans: it was Frank Sinatra, not some rock 'n' roll act, who invented the concept album. Although none of Sinatra's concept albums tell any actual stories from beginning to end, they each have unifying themes to them. "Only The Lonely" is about loneliness, "In The Wee Small Hours" is about lost love, and, on the upbeat side, there's this equally marvelous concept album from 1957, "Come Fly With Me," with songs all about travel. Backed by conducter Billy May and his orchestra, Frank takes the listener on a trip around the world. Inviting us on the journey with the fun, opening title song, Frank takes us to the "Aisle Of Capri," we enjoy together the "Moonlight In Vermont" and the "Autumn In New York," take in "April In Paris," view "London By Night," and see the sights of "Brazil" and "Blue Hawaii," among a few other places, before Frank takes us back home again and remarks that "It's Nice To Go Trav'ling." And for an encore, the "Come Fly With Me" CD concludes with three bonus tracks, with Sinatra's excellent renderings of "Chicago," "South Of The Border," and "I Love Paris," with backing by Nelson Riddle. The songs are classic, Sinatra's voice is in supreme, prime form, and the orchestrations are wonderful. Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me" is one of his very best recordings. So climb aboard, and come fly with Frank!

This is one of Sinatra's classic theme albums, with all the songs revolving around travel. Five stars isn't sufficient for an album that contains some of the great vocal tracks ever sung by Sinatra. Billy May's arrangements are nothing short of electric and infuse Sinatra's voice with a verve and exuerbance rarely heard. This is an album where you can put it on, hit play and never fast forward, all the songs are eminently Sinatraesque and every single arrangement has a touch of genius.
Frank's phrasing is (as always at this stage of his career) letter perfect. Listen to "Brazil," never a particular hit for Frank and he rarely sang it live, but who cares? It's immortalized here, forever. One wonders why he didn't incorporate this marvelously swinging song into his live repertoire, it's sheer brilliance.
If you love Sinatra, you will already have had this on vinyl and cassette (maybe even eight track). If you're new to Frank, don't hesitate one moment: grab it and listen to it for the rest of your life.

Arranger Billy May was so successful as a touring bandleader and arranger that he was unavailable to record Sinatra's first sides for Capitol in 1953. Amazingly, the two would not be joined on a project until the present project in 1957, but judging from the results, it was more than worth the wait!

May showcases his impressive range as an arranger in another of Sinatra's groundbreaking "theme" albums, this one revolving around travel. The difference in this album is that the concept stressed is not principally stylistic as in the series of albums preceding it; thus May covers the spectrum from his lush string backing on classic readings of "Autumn in New York" and "Moonlight in Vermont" to his driving brass chart on "Brazil." There was clearly a lot of fun involved in the making of this album too. Witness Sinatra's play on words in the lyrics of the witty "Isle of Capri." And who else but May and Sinatra could have combined their talents to inject an irresistible measure of swing into Rudyard Kipling's poem "On the Road to Mandalay"? The title song as well as "Let's Get Away From it All" have become core fixtures in the cache of titles most associated with Ol' Blue Eyes.

Sinatra is in peak form throughout, and May displays his genius for textures and subtle orchestral touches at every turn. This is the most varied program in Sinatra's entire recorded catolog at Capitol; add to it performer and arranger both at their considerable best, and this collection ranks as probably the finest single-album showcase of Sinatra's incredible vocal and interpretive versatility.
