Frank Sinatra

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Young Frank. In the span of an artistic career that encompassed six decades, Sinatra's "youth" represents a quarter of that, post-Bing and pre-Elvis, overlapping both in his accession to the throne of American song. The sharkskin persona and Rat Pack genuflect of his later years might overshadow his considerable musicality and innovation as a "saloon" singer - as he liked to think of himself late night gathered around a piano with afterhours pals and a… more »

Six Degrees of The Essential Nina Simone

By Will Friedwald, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Frank Sinatra starred in a number of radio shows during the 1940s, often doing two or three completely different shows a week. The Hit Parade Show was the swing era’s version of Top of the Pops, but instead of playing the top records of the day, Sinatra would sing them for the audience. So if Mel Tormé had a number one hit with “Careless Hands,” Sinatra would be the one belting it out on the show. The problem with this approach is that Sinatra always specialized in classy standards and jazzy rhythm tunes, while most hit singles (even Sinatra’s own) often fell well short of his best material. That said, this CD does offer a fun peak into 1940s America, and on each episode Sinatra got to chose one song to perform whether it was on the charts or not, ensuring that a couple of tunes as good as “So in Love” are included here. – Nick Dedina
