This 1961 release was Frank's last swing record for Capitol, with Billy May arranging.
This 1961 record, one of Frank Sinatra
's last for Capitol, continues in the swingin' vein of Come Fly with Me
, Come Dance with Me
, and Sinatra's Swingin' Session
. Though not one of Sinatra's best Capitol-era efforts, it's still pretty good. Fine versions of "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "Don't Take Your Love from Me" and "That Old Black Magic" make it well worth your hard-earned cash. Most interesting, however, are Billy May's dynamic arrangements, which take full advantage of the stereo spectrum. While some listeners may find the relentless ping-ponging a distraction, fans of "space-age bachelor pad" artists such as Esquivel and Henri Rene will find much to enjoy here. --Dan Epstein
