For The Record

Produced by Sonny Burke. Arranged by Billy May. Features Duke's band with superstars intact. Recorded on Pop's birthday. . . . By the way, the 'A' is for Albert, and the 'K' is for Kennedy.

Stan Cornyn's liner notes paint a vivid image of the session. Duke is zoot-suited. He sets up, precisely, his 'cafeteria': Cokes, cigarettes, Kleenex, ice, towel. Pop is dressed in suit, vest, and tie. 'Where's the ex-trumpet player?' In lumbers Billy May dressed for the occasion in faded khakis and his best tennis shoes. Alto-sax player Johnny Hodges and F'S reminisce about 'Indian Summer.' Frank remembered having to sing in Jack Leonard's key back in the Dorsey days when Tommy refused to transpose it. And how, 'My eyeballs would fall out every time on the top note.' Then they'd do a take, this time the song is in Frank's key. Johnny Hodges does a solo so hypnotizing that Pop almost forgets to sing. When you hear it, listen for his delayed reentry.

Cornyn: 'They hear back their music. Sinatra's eyes, when his song is happening, they also happen. And Duke, during playback strutting. Playback finished, they turn to one another. "Elegant record, Francis." Francis' reply, "Always glad to hear that about that kind of carrying on." '
