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

By Mary Whipple HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Digitally remastered and released in 1987, this Christmas album, arranged and directed by Gordon Jenkins, is one of the very best musical celebrations of the holiday season (even if Sinatra is not your favorite singer). Throughout, his sounds are accompanied and enhanced by the Ralph Brewster Singers, whose unusually sweet voices and wonderful soprano high notes add warmth and holiday cheer as they echo Sinatra, provide choral variations between stanzas, and sometimes even harmonize with him.
Six modern Christmas songs begins the CD, including a swingy "Jingle Bells" ("I love those J-I-N-G-L-E Bells"), Mel Torme's "Christmas Song," and a song Sinatra has made his own, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." He follows these with six traditional carols. In "The First Noel," the Ralph Brewster Singers' large chorus sings behind him, featuring fine harmonies, expression, and counterpoint. Sinatra, with his trademark phrasing and sure sense of tempo, slightly changes some of the traditional lyrics on this song so that he escapes the standard phrasing and the lyrics flow more gracefully, something he also does on "Little Town of Bethlehem," resulting in new appreciation of the words and meanings.
Two bonus tracks, both directed by Nelson Riddle, include Irving Berlin's "White Christmas" and Sinatra's original 1954 recording of "Christmas Waltz," which gets a different tempo from the Jenkins arrangement, which is also presented on the CD. With style and panache, leavened with holiday emotion, Sinatra, the Ralph Brewster Singers, and Gordon Jenkins present Christmas favorites, many of which (like "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas") have become forever identified with Frank Sinatra. If I could have only one Christmas CD, this one would be high on the list of choices. Mary Whipple

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful christmas 4 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the 16 or albums that Frank recorded with Capitol. Nelson arrangements are weaker this time. But the songs are all very beautiful. They are the classic Anglo Christmas Songbook. Very nice to hear at that time so nostalgic.

Este es uno de los 16 albúmenes que Frank Grabó con Capitol. Los arreglos de Nelson son los mas débiles de esta época. Pero las canciones son todas muy bellas. Son los clásicos navideños del cancionero anglosajón. Muy bonito para escuchar en esa época tan nostálgica.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 5 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have a number of Frank's Christmas CDs but, after reading the Amazon reviews of this one, I decided to buy it - and I was not disappointed. It just flows on and on from one magical song to another. Festive cheer to play again and again. Some very high quality renditions here. Strongly recommended.
