Full performer name: Frank Sinatra/Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.
Also available in a 3-CD box set with VOL. 1 and VOL. 2.
Personnel includes: Frank Sinatra (vocals); The Tommy Dorsey Orchestra.
The Sentimentalists include: Tommy Dorsey (trombone); Bunny Berigan (trumpet).
Recorded between 1940 and 1942 in New York, New York and Hollywood, California. Includes liner notes by Will Friedwald.
Personal conflict stemming from Sinatra's desire to leave the Tommy Dorsey band in 1941 notwithstanding, this compilation represents some of the finest music from the Golden Age of Swing. Save for the fierce legal battles that soon plagued them both, the teaming of Sinatra and Dorsey would prove to be more than fortuitous.
This CD captures early performances by the great Sinatra with the legendary trombonist and his orchestra. The king of all crooners is in superb form here, singing heartwarming versions of "Too Romantic" and "The Night We Called It a Day" among others. His voice is delicate yet refined, confident yet poetically vulnerable. Complete with lush big band arrangements and a string orchestra, this CD is romantic, enchanting, and truly magical.
