Biography

Only Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson can rival Frank Sinatra for biggest-selling solo artist of all time. His jazz-influenced singing remained internationally renowned whatever whims, fashions or innovations were introduced by new generations. In a solo career that included over 70 albums and hundreds of singles, from the late-30s until the mid-90s, Sinatra remained universally loved even as ... Read more in Amazon's Frank Sinatra Store

Great sounds and great music.
Ron Yankee
Collectors might want to opt for the 5-CD, 120-track "The Song is You," but for most, this 2-CD helping is an excellent fit.

In 1940, Sinatra left The Harry James Band to join the more successful Tommy Dorsey. What initially seemed to be an opportunity for broader exposure (and perhaps larger paychecks) turned into a three year graduate course in many of music's fine-points. Not only did Sinatra refine his trombone-like phrasing and note slides (either as a product of Dorsey's influence, or simply as a fellow traveler), but he also learned the keys that would fuel his later solo career: great songs, top-notch musicians, and arrangements that fit both. Sinatra's later professional style - bullheaded perfectionism, and loyalty to those who served him -- were both an artifact of Dorsey's own temperament.

Listeners weaned on Sinatra's Capitol-era solo records may find these arrangements low-key and the vocals lilting and restrained. His young voice had yet to develop into the rich musical instrument that would make its indelible mark, and he sings atop arrangements that were written more for the band than the singer. As daughter Nancy's liner notes point out, there was little improvising, lest the vocalist bump into the carefully choreographed instrumentation. The result is that, like a lot of big-band music of the swing era, the vocals don't swing nearly as much as the band.

Even without the swing, the pre-bobbysoxer Sinatra possessed a voice and a style that were highly sophisticated, and his animation of a song's lyric, whether written especially for him ("I'll Never Smile Again") or available ("Stardust" "Street of Dreams"), created certified pop standards.

This album is great...I could use dozens of words to describe it-but it all comes down to being classified as great. Even at the beginning of his career, Frank Sinatra made sure that it was known that he had talent. Even if you're not a fan-you can't deny that he has talent. Personally, I think that Tommy Dorsey was at his finest here...with his orchestra & Sinatra's vocals-it was a match made in heaven. There were a few box sets available that contained the majority of the music Sinatra & Dorsey recorded together-if not all, but it's easier to get this collection. The 2-disc set contains the best tracks that they've done together, and it's true. If you really are a Frank Sinatra fan-buy this cd...you'll enjoy it tremendously.

"As you enjoy these recordings, remember that there were no retakes, no overdubs and no special effects. What you hear is what happened on the spot. As live performances, they offer us combined lessons in music and history. Like the photos that Dad sent back from the road, they're snapshots of a man working hard to fulfill his dream of becoming the greatest singer of all-time." ~ Nancy Sinatra, July 2005 ~

"Why are these recordings essential? First, they possess a charm that's rooted in the old-fashioned sound of their arrangements, the brilliance of their performances and the warm optimism they communicated during the early days of the Second World War. Then, they're crucial to understanding the development of the Big Band idiom, and to tracing the origins of an artist who for fifty years shaped, reshaped and ultimately defined the essence of American popular music. Need there be a better reason to listen?" ~ Charles Granata ~

Indeed, and I totally agree with Nancy Sinatra that her Dad reached the pinnacle of his dream and probably far exceeded his expectations. He was above par and truly one-of-a-kind singer. Every Sinatra fan knows that he left his first mentor, Harry James, to join Tommy Dorsey's band for monetary reasons. And the rest is history. His rise to stardom was unprecedented and his extraordinary artistry is incredible.

Having influenced greatly by my late father's taste in music, I've grown to love the sound of Big Band music and this 2-CD-set is nothing but the best Big Band vocal collection of 44 Sinatra/Dorsey classics of all-time and produced by Charles Granata, author of "Sessions With Sinatra: The Art of Recording." His co-producers on this wonderful compilation are Didier Deutsch and Mark Wilder.

I witnessed this "duet" in 1942 when I was a student at Indiana Univ. It was a late afternoon session in the auditorium and the Junior Prom dance in the evening. Superb performance which I'll never forget. "Without a Song" was so powerful in the auditoruim that Sinatra had to back off from the mike. I met him during the dance at stage-side; my date was the prion year's junior prom queen. Frank was gracious. After shaking hands with him I've decline to wash it ever since!!

...you've really loved 'em all really well,...er... or something...Forget how that goes...Anyways, masterful, swinging stuff from the salad days of the Chairman, the cat of all cats, back when he was making the bobbysoxers scream...The Frankster was slightly restrained here, given that he was not encouraged to improvise, but it makes no nevermind - the arrangements and vocals are still just impeccable...
