This review is from: Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim (MP3 Download)
This 1967 release for Sinatra was one of his best records from his 60's work. If you only want to get a few Sinatra albums for your collection, i would recommend this very highly indeed. The songs here are lush and highly melodic. The orchestrations given to each track are truly marvellous giving each song an epic nature which Frank delivers some fine vocals on,anyone who says Sinatra's vocals were on the wane at this stage of his career are completely wrong. If there is one criticism it would be that the album is A) a little too short and B) the album is a little one paced with no variation of tempo. That said though these are minor nitpicks and this is a great album indeed.
You may though want to buy the complete Sinatra/Jobin album instead though which comprises this album along with the "Sinatra and company" album from 1970 which had 7 jobin penned songs on it along with 3 extra jobin/Sinatra songs which were unreleased.
