Like Sinatra said, he waited 20 years to record with Basie, and this '62 session is a keeper. The arrangements are fresh, even of some of the tunes he formerly recorded on Capitol (Learning the Blues, The Tender Trap, I Won't Dance, etc.) take on a whole new meaning. I love both versions, as each delivers in its own way. In '62, Sinatra started to punch it up more, and it shows him evolving into his most fruitful years as an entertainer and supreme singer that lasted through the 60's and set the tone for him for the rest of his career. I'd also recommend the follow on album he did with Quincy and Basie called It Might as Well be Swing, where he sings Fly Me to the Moon and other great standards, and then of course the '66 Sinatra Live at the Sands, again with Basie and a very young upcoming Quincy.

Isn't it wonderful to listen to Frank sing so clearly, so intimate, so exciting. Again! It took me back to the fifties when I waited with great expectations (always fulfilled) for his latest release. The Count Basie Band with his distinctive piano "do more with less" and the outstanding arrangements played by talented musicians, make it a fantastic "two for one" deal. Leo's Fairway Lies

If you like Frank Sinatra it honestly doesn't get much better than this. If you aren't sure what Sinatra you should get I'd highly recommend this one. Sinatra's vocals with Basie's backing is practically explosive. What a great album.

It was great. I had owned a copy of the original, but unfortunately it was damaged when my basement was flooded years ago when I was living in Pennsylvania. I really enjoyed hearing it again.

This should be in everyone's CD (or digital) music collection, it is first class form beginning to end, I kick myself for not spotting it sooner. Buy it, kick back and enjoy.
