Description
Michael Feinstein's versatility on this second tribute to the massive songbook of Sinatra ranges from the big-band rhumba "Sway" and the upbeat medley "Luck Be a Lady"/"All I Need Is the Girl" to the the orchestral ballad "The Way You Look Tonight" and the intimate vocal/piano numbers "C'est comme ça" and "I'll Be Around."

"Feinstein puts the squeeze on the Sinatra songbook, but with a personal touch. The resulting dozen tunes are surprisingly glamorous.... The strings surge à la Nelson Riddle. The horns are blistering at times. And the tunes are full of Tin Pan Alley panache. The first five cuts are just boffo, especially the James Bond-like brass on 'Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby?' The set becomes quieter and tamer after that. Feinstein takes a more Broadway approach, characteristically for him. Overall, though, while the tunes are recognizably Sinatra's, they sound impressive and different. Feinstein, who worked early on as Ira Gershwin's archivist, celebrates these tunes by breathing life into them."—The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Longtime Feinstein fans should find much to enjoy on this impeccably crafted homage to Sinatra."—All Music Guide
