The song selection was fantastic, and the Buddy Rich Orchestra couldn't have played better. Buddy even does his own number around the middle of the performance, and shows why he was the best big band drummer of them all!
Side note: Frank must have had one heck of a tailor. That tuxedo was cut perfectly. He looks really terrific for a man who was in his late 60's at the time.
But little care were taken on the audio and video quality of this and ALL other Sinatra DVDs of the new collection. Don't get me wrong, this DVD offers very decent video quality and good old stereo sound... but we are in 2010! Sinatra music is at such a high level that it is a shame that we cannot get state of the art media quality. I mean, why not restored video, even for this relatevely new material? Why not DTS audio quality or at least Dolby 5.1 audio? What about blu-ray?? When we will get the chance to watch Frank in high-rez 1080p image quality that he desearves? Take "Sinatra in Japan", for example: the old laserdisc release has better image quality than the "new" DVD release... and both on two channel stereo! We don't need more of the same material (except from Concert for the Americas, all others were available for a long time on The Frank Sinatra Collection black covers DVDs). We want either new material or at least restaured old material!
I mean, take a look at the terrific work that has been done with video material of singers like Liza (Liza with a Z, completely restored), Judy (a whole box of restored material), Barbra, Tony Bennet (some material already in blu-ray), Elvis (check the restored Hawaii concert and the Comeback Special, or On Tour, recently in Blu-ray). Frank is probably above all of them, but not on image/video quality of his DVDs!
If you are a Sinatra fan and you own a DVD player, believe me, this one's for you.
If you are a Sinatra fan,this is a must have!
Frank Sinatra will ALWAYS be in our hearts!

Sinatra at his best. This DVD is hard to find since it was only shown on PBS as a fund raiser and the family is now allowing it to be sold. A must see!!Published 9 days ago by Janet M. Molinaro

I've long wanted to own this concert on DVD. I've seen bootleg versions and VHS versions, and this looks much cleaner but it's not a pristine remastering job. Read morePublished 2 months ago by From the Musician's Pen

Excellent presentation and Sinatra is a first class showmanship! His voice and command of the musical numbers is very very good, however, I was not thrilled with every song and... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Mark W.
