Product Description

This 1961 release was Frank's last swing record for Capitol, with Billy May arranging.

Amazon.com

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

By Giuseppe C. HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 19, 2002
Format: Audio CD
I waited to add this to my collection and, upon hearing the album, don't question my timing. Were it not for the 5 bonus tracks, "Come Swing with Me!" would definitely rank as one of Frank's lesser efforts. Sinatra is in good voice and exceptionally secure, but the tempos, while "in the pocket," are a tad slow to generate any of the energy associated with the other 2 Sinatra-Billy May Capital outings, "Come Fly" and "Come Dance." Sinatra always does justice to weak material, but among the questionable song choices on this album I would have to include Sentimental Journey" (even though it has taken its place in the American Songbook), "Five Minutes More," "American Beauty Rose," "Yes Indeed!" and (I hate to say it) "I've Heard that Song Before." Why not a fresh, swinging version of a true jazz standard such as "There Will Never Be Another You" or "On Green Dolphin Street"?
Of the remaining 7 tunes from the original LP, "Don't Take Your Love" receives the most refreshing treatment, given a much needed up-tempo facelift.
But the Bonus Tracks are something else. Sinatra turns in a captivating "I Love You" (not the Cole Porter song--the other, almost equally fetching, tune) and hits the high G better than ever on "River, Stay 'Way from My Door" (one of his best performances). Finally, "How Could You Do a thing Like that to Me," comes as a pleasant surprise to this listener, who had previously heard this angular, treacherous melody done only by jazz instrumentalists like Erroll Garner. And the final tune, "I've Got a Right to Sing the Blues," takes its place right alongside the memorable versions by Satchmo, Jack Teagarden, and Coleman Hawkins.
In sum, if someone gives you this album, smile appreciatively. If you're a Sinatra fan, it's just a matter of time.

As you can see from other reviews, this is generally considered a "lesser" Capitol release from SInatra. I, however, am quite fond of it. It IS a bit kitschy in it's "stereo seperation" mixes, but that's a product of the times. I, personally, find the songs - though some are not as "celebrated" as others he's recorded - to range from "pretty good" to "great" (i.e., I like "American Beauty Rose," so this already puts me in the minority). The disc is full of punch, has interesting arrangements (tubas and harps, anyone?), and Frank is in fine voice (indeed, vocally he was still at his peak - the decline would begin in a few years on some Reprise releases). The most important thing to remember when considering whether you will buy this disc is that even weaker Sinatra/Capitol titles are ABSOLUTE CLASSICS. "Come Swing With Me" really DOES swing, even if Frank's heart wasn't 100% in recording further Capitol titles at the time. The man simply did NOT record a bum album for Capitol, regardless of whether the arranger was Jenkins, May, or Riddle. If you like Ol' Blue Eyes, you must have this!

First of all, this late Capitol album is a cut below SWINGIN LOVERS, SWINGIN AFFAIR, and COME DANCE WITH ME. But I feel it's as good as the later Basie albums, and even I REMEMBER TOMMY. True, these cuts are mainly retreads of songs Frank helped popularize in the 1940's, but these versions swing harder. FIVE MINUTES MORE, AMERICAN BEAUTY ROSE, and SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET are all just about perfect, even if the blaring horns may seem a tad too loud when one is pushing 50. And the last four "Bonus Tracks" swing right thru the end zone,especially RIVER STAY AWAY FROM MY DOOR, and I GOTTA RIGHT TO SING THE BLUES. Especially recommended for the young crowd, perhaps the 2nd Capitol blaster (after COME DANCE WITH ME) that the youth set would like. The others here are decent enough, if not favorites. BTW, ALMOST BEING IN LOVE is another supercharged performance,intriguing too since it (is) was mainly known as a good show tune (Was it "My Fair Lady?" I'm not sure.)

I originally gave this album 3 stars in 2010. After a couple more years of listening to it, I have to raise it to 4 stars. Yes, it was the penultimate album of Sinatra's Capitol tenure, and Sinatra probably did not lavish on this album the attention it deserved. But is still a good album. The story is well known how Sinatra wanted to get out of his Capitol contract so he could start his own record label (Reprise). He actually went "on strike" for the better part of a year. He and Capitol eventually came to an agreement that Sinatra could start releasing albums on his new label; but he would still have to make a certain number of albums and singles before closing out the contract at Capitol.

So, "Come Swing With Me" is one of the "contractual obligation" albums. As such, it does not quite have the sparkle of earlier triumphs with the same arranger Billy May or the earlier "Swingin'" albums with Nelson Riddle. However, I don't think it is fair to think poorly of something for what it is not. Taken on its own, "Come Swing With Me" is quite a good album. While Sinatra's voice is deeper and a little less elastic than is was on say, "A Swingin' Affair", it is still Sinatra sounding great with some spirited arrangements.

Several of the tracks are outstanding, including an uptempo "Day by Day". "Sentimental Journey" is one of the slowest versions I've ever heard and could use a little more pizazz. "Almost Like Being in Love" is a superb energetic reading. "American Beauty Rose" surpasses any of Sinatra's earlier versions with Columbia. "Yes, Indeed" is indeed a highlight, and "Lover" has a lot of energy.

Stories abound about how some of the great Sinatra recordings required multiple takes before Sinatra was satisfied with the result.
