Recorded in 1963 between the ultra-swinging SINATRA-BASIE and SINATRA'S SINATRA, THE CONCERT SINATRA is a short, richly musical set of classic theatre songs, some of which ("Ol' Man River," the "Soliloquy" from CAROUSEL, "Bewitched" from PAL JOEY ) were milestones in Sinatra's earlier career. Here arranger Nelson Riddle is allowed to work with a large symphony orchestra and the results once more are a textbook example of fine orchestration. The formal settings do not prevent Riddle from handling this potentially "heavy" material with his characteristically deft touch. For instance, Sinatra/Riddle's sure reading of the epic "Ol' Man River" is far superior to the over-the-top Alex Stordahl-arranged '40s version. Sinatra is in fine voice throughout; no evidence here of the increasingly rough delivery which came to characterize his '60s output. The classiest of the Reprise albums.
