THE WONDERFUL SONGS OF GEORGE GERSHWIN
IN THE VOICE OF THE INIMITABLE FRANK SINATRA
Frank Sinatra never recorded a proper George Gershwin songbook in the way other singers like Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan did. However, he recorded enough material to present a picture here of his particular way of performing the songs by the great composer. Compiled from his Columbia, Capitol and Reprise years, this collection presents some of the best Gershwin tunes in the inimitable style of The Voice.
FRANK SINATRA, vocals on all tracks, plus:
Orchestras conducted by NELSON RIDDLE, AXEL STORDAHL, BILLY MAY & JOHNNY MANDEL among others.
Recorded in Los Angeles, California, between 1944 & 1962.
Music by GEORGE GERSHWIN
