This is part of Bluebird Records "Bluebird's Best" series.
Fourteen of the 87 songs that Frank Sinatra recorded with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra between 1940 and 1942 at the start of his career are featured in this entertaining and instructive best-of. The band's versatility is matched by Sinatra's youthful energy--the singer switches expertly from upbeat material like "Oh! Look at Me Now" to smooth love songs like "I'll Never Smile Again," and his intimate delivery on the romantic "Night and Day" and "Say It" heralds his later immense popularity among younger audiences.
