5.0 out of 5 stars Moonlight Sinatra CD, 19 Dec 2010
This review is from: Moonlight Sinatra (Audio CD)
This rather short CD of only 10 tracks is still worth the money, featuring as it does Frank Sinatra backed by the Nelson Riddle orchestra. It was released in 1966 on the Reprise label. It comprises love songs about the moon, including `Moon love' based on a melody from the Andante 2nd movement of Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony. It also includes the ever-popular `Moonlight becomes you' and `Oh, you crazy moon' from van Heusen & Burke, Berlin's `Reaching for the moon', Glenn Miller's `Moonlight serenade' and Fred Ahlert's `The moon was yellow'. But there are some less often heard tunes too: `Moon song', `The moon got in my eyes' and `Moonlight mood' that I hadn't heard before I bought the LP. The disc might have been Sinatra's response to the Swingin' On The Moon LP from Mel Tormé of 1960, based on the same idea of love songs about the moon, but where Tormé's is swinging, as the title indicates, Sinatra's is much more relaxed and sensuous.
