For The Record

This album is subtitled 'An Historic Musical First,' and that, it was. 'Pennies From Heaven,' 'Please Be Kind,' 'I Won't Dance.'

Robin Douglas-Home: 'Both (have) definite techniques; when Sinatra touches a song, it never subsequently sounds right sung by anyone else; when Basie touches a piano keyboard, the sound tells you those fingers could belong to only one man . . .'

Neal Hefti's name doesn't appear on the album because he wanted equal billing with Sinatra and Basie or no billing at all. My dad disagreed with Neal. Bill Basie was the star here.

In the middle of the October 22 recording date, everything
stopped. A TV was hooked up so everybody could watch Frank Jr. in his first guest appearance on The Jack Benny Program. Dad was so proud he sent Uncle Jack a wire that read, 'Thanks, Jack. Frankie's Father.'
