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

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth 10 Stars! August 4, 2000
By Kim K.
Format:Audio CD
Since the review I'd written 2 yrs. ago of this Sinatra holiday album mysteriously vanished, I feel compelled now, early August, to write a new one. I own a pretty big collection of cool yule albums, cassettes & cd's, and A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra is easily in my top 10 faves. The opening tune, Jingle Bells, is the best I've ever heard-a fun, bouncy, swingin' tune that you just know Frank enjoyed recording. Who can resist hearing Frank, backed by the Ralph Brewster Singers, sing "I love those J-I-N-G-L-E BELLS-BONG-those holiday J-I-N-G-L-E BELLS-BONG!" Under the superb conducting of Gordon Jenkins(except for the last 2 cuts which were conducted by Nelson Riddle)the entire album takes you on an old fashioned holiday journey through traditional songs as well as beautiful hymns sung as only Frank can sing them. Even if you already own the classic yuletide albums by Bing, Perry, Johnny, Nat & Andy, your collection is not complete without this Sinatra holiday album. Very highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hang a shining star upon the highest bow! November 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A question for Christmas trivia buffs: What did Frank Sinatra have in common with Andrae Crouch? ("father of modern Gospel music"). Both men instigated changes to the beloved seasonal classic, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." And both singers enjoyed the approval of the song's composer, Hugh Martin (who left us March 11, 2011 -- five months shy of his 97th birthday).

-----

It was 50 years ago this month (November, 1957) that Frank Sinatra's "A Jolly Christmas" album was released by Capitol Records - barely one month after the release of "Elvis' Christmas Album" -- which became the "Number 1" best-selling LP of the 1950s -- despite composer Irving Berlin waging a conspicuously unsuccessful campaign to keep Elvis' version of "White Christmas" off the radio: Elvis' Christmas Album sold 7 million copies!

In the 50 years since then, "A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra" -- a collaboration with "the orchestra and chorus of Gordon Jenkins" -- eventually sold one million copies (and is listed as the "Number 13" best-selling LP of the 1950s). But at the time of its release, the sales outlook for this LP wasn't nearly so bright . . .

[In 1957 Sinatra's career had reached a new peak, with albums that same year, including the masterpiece, "CLOSE TO YOU" (with the "Hollywood String Quartet") and an up-tempo classic, "A SWINGIN' AFFAIR." It was the same year his PAL JOEY ("Lady is a Tramp") movie soundtrack held the "Number 2" position in album sales (for one week -- and sold 500,000 copies.]

But at this time in 1957, music critics weren't in the spirit for a `traditional-style' Christmas LP. Some suggested that Gordon Jenkins' string arrangements and vocal choruses were "passé" and in "poor taste." (!

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Music The Way It Ought To Be Sung December 15, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Even in 1957, how many more times could you have heard "Jingle Bells," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," or any Christmas classic before they seemed repetitive? Especially if you're Frank Sinatra and Gordon Jenkins (who had earlier worked on the sad, beautiful "Where Are You?") recording in mid-July Los Angeles. But the beautiful results heard here speak to the staying power of these songs and to the mastery of their singer. The songs mentioned above, plus "The Christmas Song," "Christmas Waltz," "First Noel," and Mendelsson's "Hark The Herald Angels Sing," receive beautiful, lush string treatments with the reverence Jenkins always gave to Sinatra's most serious material. On the remastered version, Nelson Riddle's "Christmas Waltz" is also uncovered; it's interesting to compare the two versions. This music is every bit as refreshing as a breath of cool Christmas air.
