In this disc he says he just turned 50 so that is when I think he was at his best and this compilation with Count Basie's band does not disappoint.
Two of the best Sinatra discs I have are A Man and His Music and now Sinatra at the Sands.
In both discs Frank has a personal commentary which I like too so the music does not sound 'canned',
Sound quality is also excellent for a live show and all this disc needed to complete it was his singing My Way which is my favourite.
For Sinatra fans don't be without this CD because you will play it forever and still love it.

Frank Sinatra. His records aren't rare and anybody who wants to listen to him can. I can't say of him as I can of Kraus "he never hit a bad note", and indeed he hit one or two in this concert but nobody ever had greater musicianship or could present a song so perfectly. Combined with Count Basie...adjectives fail...this record could well define "great evening of great music".
Is this my favorite Sinatra record? Beats me...there are many to choose from. But I do know I would not be without it. Readers may disagree with some of my inclusions or exclusions from the list of singers and that's OK, but one thousand years from now folks will still be listening to this album...that's the whole point of a gold standard.
