Editorial Reviews

Released in 1966 on Reprise, Moonlight Sinatra was arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle. The tracks featured on Moonlight Sinatra all thematically feature the moon. A romantic listen and a real gem of an album, Moonlight Sinatra is also a loose tribute to Bing Crosby.

Moonlight Sonata, Moonlight Sinatra!

What a great CD this is! Frank is in great voice. A "theme" album, those were always my favorites and what a theme it is, the moon and love.

My favorite Sinatra albums came out in the 50's, on Capital, this is from later, 1966, when most of his albums were on Reprise, but it has much in common the great saloon song fifties Sinatra. But more wistful and less sad I think. Sinatra was into the swingin' Rat Pack, "Ring-a-Ding-Ding" stuff by then but this harkens back to his more romantic and less egotistical side.

I think Nelson Riddle was Sinatra's best arranger. Riddle adds little impressionist and fantastical flourishes to accent the lyrics.

I had never before heard lyrics for "Moonlight Serenade". I think my favorites are the lesser known "Moon got in my Eyes" and "I Wished on a Moon" "Moon Song", "Moon Love" (a.k.a, Tchaikovsky's 5th) all full of summer, moonlight, beautiful women and champagne. You can see it in your mind's eye. Like you woke up the next day and you can still picture the girl with moonlight coming from her eyes! Been there!

"I guess you don't remember when the moon got in my eyes"

Lovely, romantic. Buy it! The best new Sinatra I've heard in a decade. Not a bad cut on the album. Less than 35 minutes.

I didn't hear this before the digital remix, but this mix should satisfy the most demanding audiophile. Clear, very 3-D image.

For those of us who are still romantics.

Full of stardust and moon dust and moon magic. Smooooooooooooooooth. Highest recommendation!

One wonders why this 1966 album seems to have disappeared from the scene, and is so scarce these days. True, it was never a big Frank album, and in 1966, the youth set practically ruled the air waves as it continues to do. This may not be essential Frank,but when you've heard all the great and familiar FS numbers,this will be a pleasant surprise. This is Frank and Nelson mining some gems from Bing Crosby's days, and for me, is a really fresh-sounding album, with four scarce diamonds, and where every song is first rate. The diamonds are REACHING FOR THE MOON with it's own mysterious sound, including a terrific counterpoint string-based solo;O YOU CRAZY MOON, one of my all-time faves,even with the silly lyrics. The flowing rhythms and trumpet/sax swing make this one.MOON LOVE, a take-off on Tchaikovsky, as good as the original IMHO; and THE MOON WAS YELLOW, a Spanish flamengo close to perfection all the way. If you can find it, and like a different sound, go for it...BTW, Frank's vocals here are just about the top,right before the inevitable cragginess which really begins in the late 60's.

This is my favorite Sinatra album and the favorite Sinatra album of many people. Nelson Riddle never so lushly arranged as he did for this classically-inspired album. The woodwinds are moody, the strings both hushed and soaring and a glimmery melodic moon hangs over Sinatra's rich winery of vocals. This is a deep, deep album, not a gaily romantic fling. It reminds me of a moon sailing across a clouded sky with a storm brewing. Never was Sinatra as mysteriously thrilling as on this masterpiece. For the cover they were sure to do a masculine take because the theme here is really terribly romantic. But Frank was terribly romantic, too, though always in a very manly way. A great achievement to be enjoyed over and over and over again.

"I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night
The roses are sighing . . . a moonlight serenade." ~ "Moonlight Serenade" ~ Beautiful Music and Lyrics by Glenn Miller and Mitchell Parish

The great Nelson Riddle and the legendary Frank Sinatra were perfectly made for each other . . . musically, that is. Together they have recorded the best Sinatra music that we enjoy listening to always and forever. Whatever it was that Mr. Sinatra elicited on all his recordings, it must be a real magic to one's ears. He had a special ability to interpret songs passionately and make them his own and leave lasting impressions on them. Thus, making these songs charming and timeless like the repertoire in this lovely and romantic CD, songs about the moon and moonlight, which are synonymous to love.

Just like the Chairman who once told an interviewer that his favorite kind of music was "all the great Glenn Miller things," my absolute favorite of course is Glenn Miller and Mitchell Parish's classic, "Moonlight Serenade." I set it up on a 'repeat' mode so I could listen to it eternally. That's how I love this gem of a song. Mr. Riddle's lavish strings arrangement is simply superb and Mr. Sinatra's perfect-in-every-way style of singing is simply spellbinding.

I also like his renditions of Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke's "Moonlight Becomes You" and "Oh, You Crazy Moon," ("you broke my heart!"), Irving Berlin's "Reaching For The Moon" and Harold Adamson and Peter De Rose "Moonlight Mood."

Another remarkable track is a song based on a composition by the great classical master, Peter Tchaikovsky's "Fifth Symphony: Second Movement" and written by Mack David, Mack Davis and Andre Kostelanetz, "Moon Love."

Listen to this wonderful CD and let Mr. Sinatra "stand at your gate" and serenade you with these 'moon' songs on a June night such as this. How lovely!
