    A VERY special nod to our beautiful host, Miss Nancy, and to her two amazing daughters AJ and Mandy - both devoted and loving moms themselves! And, with great love, we remember the dearest Sinatra "mom" of all, Nancy Sr.
    BONX!

    Happy Mother's Day to Nancy Sr., Nancy Jr, AJ and Amanda.

    What a great show....such great music!

    The spotlight album was particularly poignant for me. My last position before retiring took me to Asia and around the world 1-2x a month for over 4 years. For every one of those trips (starting from the States), I played the All Alone album on my first flight.

    It was always sad leaving my family (typically 3 week trips) and although the album is comprised of Torch songs, the combination of Frank's in-form voice plus Gordon Jenkins beautiful arrangements just felt right for my mood. Naturally, on the flight home from the UK to the US I always played uplifting albums.

    Nancy, I took note of the comparison between your Dad & Brother for Indiscreet. It called to mind A Cottage for Sale which was delivered so breezily by Nat Cole In Just One of Those Things vs. your Dad's treatment in No One Cares.

    A lot of love went into this show. My first opportunity to appreciate this wonderful program in its entirety -- loving every minute! Thanks Nancy & Chuck. Wishing everyone could hear the sonic beauty of "Nancy For Frank" streamed through your computer in perfect 'hi-def' sound! I listen through Sennheiser PX 100's earphones. They made the mic Frank insisted on recording with. (But you knew that, right?)

    At this moment it is Dindi – whose lyricist the late Gene Lees was there in the studio that magic night in 1967 – present as Frank's guest – for this recording -- before Nancy and her Dad went into the studio next door, the same night, to record Somethin' Stupid. Lees said he never was so deeply affected by any recording than hearing Frank's take on Dindi.

    “Today's artist spotlight,” Nancy just announced, “is devoted to the complete studio recordings” (of Frank and A.C. Jobim) and the tracks we've just listened to, Nancy notes were all “arranged by Claus Ogerman” ahead of the tracks arranged, two years later, by Eumir Deodato.

    What a joy to hear them introduced by Nancy -- who returned to say that this album with Claus Ogerman inspired her Dad to do the later recordings "without strings" and "a shade brighter and a bit more dramatic" -- arranged by the "brilliant young jazz musician, Eumir Deodato."

    SONG OF THE SABIA - arranged by “Deodato” (but not released)

    The 'love I made' – to LOSE myself . . .
    Those mistakes I made – to FIND myself . . .

    [Elsewhere, last month, I finally wrote a note of appreciation for this one. It really is a brilliant "bird song" arrangement and splendid vocal.]


    I'd forgotten the terrific lyric for SONG OF THE SABIA. It could pass for loving deathbed recollections of a man watching, in the movie-of-the-mind, “my life passing before my eyes.”

    Never heard any other version of this most obscure song from Brazil before it was played years ago on Siriusly Sinatra satellite radio – as it was a moment ago:

    Finally appeared as a bonus track on the latter-day CD combining the Sinatra/Jobim recordings of two different sessions, the first and most famous, the 1967 with orchestrations by Polish-born, mostly-American arranger Claus Ogerman, the latter recordings arranged by Eumir Deodato (from the session that produced my favorite (Frank's too?) – WAVE).

    Is it at YouTube? Yes! A version with 51-thousand “views” and the best (informed by Brazilians) “comments” (below)

    the original lyrics,was wrote by Chico Buarque de Holanda under influence of Exile Song, a poem by Gonçalves Dias, a brazilian romantic poet, that says: "My land has palms where the sabiá sings. The birds that sing here don't sing like there. God, don't give permission for my death before my return to my land..."

    The opening melodic passage is taken note for note from the call of the sabia in the forest. This is so brilliant taken from nature. A very haunting melody. A Jobim classic. Love to hear it a cappella as well.

    ONE NOTE SAMBA -- best-ever recording by any singer

    I'd forgotten how much I love Frank's take on ONE NOTE SAMBA. He sings it with effortless grace -- a deceptively 'artless' delivery. You think, I could sing that! Oh no you can't. The breath control in the phrasing on the bridge. So easily delivered you're not even aware of the brilliance of his technique. Yes, at this moment my favorite track arranged by Deodato!

  11. So easily delivered you're not even aware of the brilliance of his technique. Yes, at this moment my favorite track arranged by Deodato!


    That is why he is the greatest singer ever put on earth.

    Hi, Mark. For those unaware, the sabiá is a songbird, the national bird of Brazil. (Lots of interesting details in the song article at —> Wikipedia.)

    It should be mentioned that the “not released” part of the subject line is not entirely accurate. Although the original planned Sinatra Jobim album was unreleased (save for a few surviving copies on withdrawn 8-track cartridge), “Song of the Sabiá” WAS issued in 1970 on a Reprise single (B-side of “Lady Day”) and a few subsequent non-US LP issues.
