Editorial Reviews

Released in 1962 on Reprise, Sinatra and Swingin' Brass was the first time Sinatra worked with arranger and composer, Neal Hefti. Featured on the album are new, up-tempo versions of many songs Sinatra originally recorded for Capitol.

By Giuseppe C. HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 22, 2001
Format: Audio CD
The comprehensive music site gives this album--Sinatra with Hefti plus a winning playlist if there ever was one--a grudging 21/2 stars (out of 5). Incredible! When you combine the music's "Master Storyteller" with the jazz stars in the Heft-led orchestra with a peerless playlist of songs from the Great American Songbook (which was practically "created" by Sinatra's reactionary return to these early tunes by America's great composers, what's not to like? This album wouldn't necessarily be my first recommendation to a Sinatra newbie, but that's no reason to give it less than 5 stars! (As if "Macbeth" merits 2 stars because it's inferior to "Othello" and "King Lear." Or the latter two should receive no more than 3 or 4 stars because they're not as rich and complex as "Hamlet." Measuring Sinatra against himself is not a game that should be played in our age of cultural amnesia (which extends to the very concept of the "concept album" as invented by Ole Blue). .

Make no mistake about it. Sinatra's musicianship and vocal artistry would in themselves require volumes--yet people focus on irrelvancies like his putative relation with "da mob" and his place as "Chairman" of the Rat Pack). The only thing that would make this album any better would be the inclusion of the orchestrator on the majority of Ole Blue's albums--the incomparable Nelson Riddle. But Neal Hefti had proven himself with his LP's for the Count Basie Orchestra, and Frank liked what he heard. As the word "Swing" in the title suggests, this is an "album"--in the tradition of Capitol's "Songs for Swingin' Dancers" and all of its progeny. It needs to be experienced as a whole. Was Sinatra a jazz singer?

Sinatra and Swingin' Brass has its moments -- Hefti was known for upbeat, feisty arrangements (his Atomic Basie album, arranged for/performed by Count Basie, is excellent) -- and if you enjoy the faster, hipper style of the early 1960s this album is very satisfying.
Apart from 'Goody Goody', which was an old Big Band era song that wasn't so great even back then, most of the songs are solid Sinatra material -- many are remakes. 'I Get A Kick Out of You' appeared on the classic Songs For Young Lovers album of 1953, 'At Long Last Love' and 'They Can't Take That Away from Me' are also remade, but with new arrangements these are like old friends with a new angle. The risk with remaking Sinatra songs (such as 'You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me' on the original CD release) is that the originals were usually definitive and defy improvement. Hefti's brass arrangements make up in excitement what they lack in subtlety, but it's a different experience.
'Tangerine' and 'Love is Just Around the Corner' are new on this album (for FS) and work perfectly with the Hefti approach, as does 'Pick Yourself Up'. 'At Long Last Love' is nicely updated.
On the original CD release, Reprise included 'Everybody's Twistin' -- an embarassment -- as well as 'Nothing But the Best' and 'You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me', these last two tracks worthy of a listen. I have not traded my original CD for the remastered release because of this, but either way Sinatra and Swingin' Brass is a fast romp, Sinatra's closest effort to a jazz album. Recommended.

Sinatra and Swingin' Brass may have a few critics out there but I for one enjoyed this album immensely. Franks sings very well on this CD and just one listen proves it amply! The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork reflects very good judgment and forethought. This is a must-have CD for Frank Sinatra fans.

"Goody, Goody" features a strong performance from The Chairman Of The Board; he handles this like the champ he always was and that impresses me. Frank's rendition plays with the melody somewhat to make this piece his own; there are a few good key and tempo changes to make this number sound fresh and new as well. Great! "They Can't Take That Away From Me" has Frank singing so well; he singing joyously of the thrills of true love and this makes Frank's rendition THE definitive rendition of this classic ballad. Frank's voice never sounded better, either! There's also "At Long Last Love;" "At Long Last Love" has a swell brass section and the percussion marks the beat in the background as Frank belts this one straight out of the ballpark!

"I'm Beginning To See The Light" was always one of my favorite classic pop songs; and I absolutely love Frank's interpretation of this ballad. The orchestral accompaniment fits in perfectly with Frank's vocals and he delivers this way beyond my expectations--even for him! "I'm Beginning To See The Light" is clearly a major highlight of this CD.

"I Get A Kick Out Of You" showcases Frank front and center--and that's great in my book! Frank sings this as he swings brightly to make this number his own. The tempo changes enhance the beauty of this tune and that brass section again complements Frank's singing very well. "I Get A Kick Out Of You" is another major highlight of this album.
