2018 EU issue on 180g LP= This album is a superb collection of Frank and friends from a part of Frank's career that's long been underrated. Here, Sinatra scales the jazz summit with Louis Armstrong on "Birth Of The Blues" and does three electrifying collaborations with one of his favorites, Ella Fitzgerald. Ella's voice is at her best in each. Rival Elvis Presley gets the Chairman's respect on a wonderfully playful meeting-of-the-icons medley of "Witchcraft"/"Love Me Tender". The tunes are bright and lively and many benefit from Nelson Riddle's arranging genius. Frank and Dean are great, improvising and playing off one another as always. But wait until you hear "Together" in which Bing joins Dino and Frank for a happy, hilarious threesome.
