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 Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The title says "Sinatra and Strings" but what it should say is Sinatra and Costa, because this is the singer's first album with arranger Don Costa. Most of the songs are quite familiar: "Night and Day," "Misty," "Stardust," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "All or Nothing At All." What makes them different this time is Costa's arrangements, dominated not only by strings but by overall heavy orchestrations, that give these old ballads an attractive sensuality. This approach is matched by Sinatra's vocals, which are powerful in voice yet subtle in their phrasing. The less familiar songs might actually end up being more appealing to you (the arrangement on "Stardust," for example, might not be to your liking). The opening track, "I Hadn't Anyone Till You," along with "That's All" and "Yesterdays" are just as good as the more familiar hits. The result is that "Sinatra and Strings" is one of his best ballad collections as well as one of his most passionate albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'm gonna love this come rain or come shine!" 2 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Although this album is undoubtedly one of Sinatra's greatest recorded achievements, I'm reviewing it here more for one song than the entire album. Being a lifetime devoted Frankophile, I sometimes have to contemplate that awful hypothetical, "in the event of a blazing fire, which Frankie song would you run out of the house with," and my answer for the last 5 years has been "Come Rain Or Come Shine". Everytime I hear this track, I cannot take my ears off it. It is the most incredible demonstration of Sinatra's vocal and theatrical intelligence. This is his "To Be Or Not To Be." You can listen to all the other versions of this song, Ray Charles is the only near contender. From the first note he opens the song out with a broad wingspan. And as the orchestra swells and the brass come crashing in, you know he's truly taking flight. You feel every word and every note of this amazing song as you go on a journey as epic as Shubert's 9th Symphony. This is more than just one of the those things, this is epic. The rest of the album is also sublime, especially Don Costa and his shimmering strings. But the greatest reason for buying this song is CROCS. Sinatra owns this song and he's not giving the keys back.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Things to All Men 21 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
Many of Sinatra's albums are dependent upon a circumstance or situation. "Swingin' Brass" works best when the listener is feeling fine and energetic on a sunny day. When it comes to "Only the Lonely" the gloomier the weather and the listener's mood, the finer the album becomes. However this is the album for all occasions, it is romantic and relaxing, yet powerful and energizing yet managing to remain also melancholy.

The arrangements are to my mind the finest on any Sinatra album, and the collection of songs is truly inspired. We see the great ballad standards of "Misty", "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "Night and Day" that seem to grace every Sinatra compilation out there. Yet we see beautiful versions of songs such as "It Might as Well be Spring" or the great standard "All or Nothing at All".

However the greatest aspect of this album is Sinatra's vocals. His diction is perfect, clear and soft yet achingly tender in places. This is his most tenderly song album in his career, his voice warm and strong yet delicate and soft. 1962 is in my mind the year Sinatra sang at his best, this is evident on the other albums of this year to (Swingin' Brass, All Alone and Great Songs from Great Britain).

In regards to recording quality, the sound quality is the best of all the studio albums, and I have listened to them all. Whether this is down to the quality of the re-mastering, or the original recording, I am unaware, however the result is perfect sound quality.

This is a true masterpiece, and Sinatra at his very best. A rare CD, if you see it, buy it. You will not be disappointed if you have even the slightest love for Sinatra within you, or the slightest appreciation for fine music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinatra and Strings 18 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I was very pleased to be able to listen again to the songs on Sinatra and Strings. I bought the LP record many years ago as part of a double album simply called Frank, but had not been able to listen to it for a long time. I had looked for it as a CD in various shops in England but it wasn't available, which is a pity because I think it shows Sinatra at or very near the peak of his ability in range, control and phrasing. All of the songs are performed well with excellent arrangements by Don Costa. Some are breathtakingly beautiful, Night and day, All or Nothing at All, Yesterdays and my particular favourite Come Rain or Come Shine which probably owes more to the big band genre than the rest of the album. My one reservation was the addition of two more songs (Bonus tracks). Although well sung I don't think the songs are up to the standard of the original collection and I think the album should have finished on the poignant Yesterdays. The quality of the CD recording is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinatra & Strings 19 Dec 2010
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This was a 10 track LP, recorded in 1961 and released by Reprise the following year. As a CD, it now has a couple of bonus tracks: Allie Wrubel's `As you desire me', released for the first time and rather less steamy and more powerful than Peggy Lee's version with Billy May, and Henry Nemo's `Don't take your love from me'. The orchestrations by Don Costa are in somewhat similar style to Nelson Riddle's backings for Concert Sinatra in that they are equally sumptuous, and brass and woodwind are in there too with the strings. This was the first collaboration between Sinatra and Costa, but they got together again for the Cycles, My Way and A Man Alone LPs, and other collaborations that involved Costa with Gordon Jenkins as arrangers.
All of the tunes here are well-known: Ray Noble's `I hadn't anyone till you'; Porter's `Night and day' (very different arrangement from those by Billy May or Nelson Riddle for Frank); Errol Garner's `Misty'; half of Hoagy Carmichael's `Stardust' (only the verse, without the chorus, which did not go down well with the composer !); Arlen & Mercer's `Come rain or come shine', certainly one of several high spots on the CD; Russ Columbo's `Prisoner of love' that Clarence Gaskill and Leo Robin put words to. Rodgers and Hammerstein's `It might as well be spring' is given a much more dynamic rendition than the original version by Dick Haymes in State Fair. Sinatra sings up a storm on Lawrence & Altman's `All or nothing at all' but is much more gentle with Kern & Harbach's `Yesterdays' from Roberta. I can't think of anything more to say except that this is a superb CD that, if you like Sinatra, you cannot fail to enjoy and be impressed with.

Sinatra at his very best. The 40 year old LP is really worn out and it is wonderful to hear the great songs without scratches. Well worth buying.
