Description
Whether swinging and improvising with Ella or easing into a samba groove with Jobim, Frank Sinatra was a master singer and a consummate performer. This set compiles some of his best moments on television, with four different specials filmed between 1964 and 1981.

"From our first encounter with Sinatra in his Emmy-winning 'A Man and His Music' (1965), his musical journey plays out like a feature film, complete with story arc, character development and plenty of music to set the mood. These are songs, he tells the viewing audience at one point, that 'fit him like a comfortable pair of shoes.' With Nelson Riddle and Gordon Jenkins leading the orchestras behind him, it's a perfect fit all around. What's fascinating is not so much the work of the elder Sinatra, well into his 70s, but the work from those early TV performances that came into America's living rooms so intimately. There are sizzling scenes with Ella Fitzgerald, for example, from 'A Man and His Music Ella Jobim' (1967), both solo and in duet; you'll search far and wide to find musicmaking more electrifying. Every bit as exciting is Sinatra's medley with Antonio Carlos Jobim, the sultry Brazilian bossa nova composer/instrumentalist/vocalist in their only filmed pairing. 'Every generation has its own sound,' Sinatra muses at one point. Their sounds transcended decades."Chicago Sun-Times
