The Royal Festival Hall (1962) & Live At Carnegie Hall combines full length Sinatra shows from two of the world’s most celebrated concert halls. Filmed on June 1, 1962, this Royal Festival Hall show was a concert performed before royalty in London as part of a worldwide tour that Frank Sinatra undertook to raise money for children’s charities. Sinatra is accompanied by the Bill Miller Sextet in performances of songs including “At Long Last Love”, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “I Get A Kick Out Of You”, “Ol’ Man River”, “I Could Have Danced All Night”, and many more.

Live At Carnegie Hall was filmed in June 1980, at New York City’s famous Carnegie Hall; this show captures Frank Sinatra performing with a full orchestra. The concert was shortly after the release of his landmark Trilogy album and showcases a number of songs from that album including “Summer Me, Winter Me,” “Street Of Dreams,” “You And Me,” “The Song Is You,” and “Theme From New York, New York” alongside Sinatra classics such as “The Lady Is A Tramp,” “Come Fly With Me,” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.”

Live From Caesars Palace & The First 40 Years combines two great Frank Sinatra events from Caesars Palace, Las Vegas in the late seventies. Live From Caesars Palace was filmed in May 1978. Frank Sinatra was always at home in Las Vegas and this is a wonderfully relaxed and entertaining performance. Highlights include “All Of Me,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “Something,” and “Send In The Clowns,” sparkling renditions of “Baubles, Bangles And Beads” and “My Kind Of Town” along with other Sinatra standards.

Filmed in December 1979, The First 40 Years is an all-star gala tribute to the “Chairman Of The Board” celebrating forty years in show business. Among those saluting Sinatra are Sammy Davis Jr, Cary Grant, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Gene Kelly, Harry James, Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn. The evening comes to the perfect conclusion with Frank himself taking to the stage to perform classics including “Theme From New York, New York,” “I’ve Got The World On A String,” and “It Was A Very Good Year.”

The final release of the The Frank Sinatra Collection is the fantastic Portrait Of An Album & Sinatra Sings, which combines the film Portrait Of An Album from the early eighties with the compilation program Sinatra Sings. Filmed in 1984, Portrait Of An Album follows Frank Sinatra as he records his album L.A. Is My Lady with producer Quincy Jones, who also conducts the sessions. There are full performances, caught live in the studio, along with interviews from Quincy Jones, Lionel Hampton, lyricists Alan and Marilyn Bergman and engineer Phil Ramone. Also captured is Michael Jackson’s visit to the studio to meet Frank Sinatra, a truly magical moment.

Narrated by Tina Sinatra, the Sinatra Sings TV compilation brings together memorable moments from Frank Sinatra’s career on television, in the studio and in concert through the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. Many of his best loved songs are featured including “Fly Me To The Moon,” “Witchcraft,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “My Way,” “Strangers In The Night,” “That’s Life,” “The Lady Is A Tramp,” and many more.

The Frank Sinatra Collection is packed with incredible renditions of the songs he made famous and features many recognizable faces along the way, offering fascinating background material that charts Sinatra’s story.

Revisiting a Masterpiece: 'Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim'

April 7, 2017 by Nate Chinen

Frank Sinatra was well into his Rat Pack era, the reigning American embodiment of masculine suavity and aplomb, when he teamed up with a maestro of Brazilian music to make one of the most exquisitely tender albums of his career. That album, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim, has lost none of its luster since it was first released 50 years ago. In fact, a newly remastered anniversary edition extracts additional depth from Claus Ogerman’s orchestrations, which frame Sinatra’s voice like a Rolex on a velvet cushion.

The album, recorded in Hollywood in the winter of 1967, captures both Sinatra and Jobim at an apex, flush with creative and popular success. Sinatra was coming off a knockout run of albums on his Reprise label — including Sinatra at the Sands, with the Count Basie Orchestra; That’s Life, a Top 10; and Strangers in the Night, whose title track became an unstoppable hit.

Jobim, a pianist and guitarist as well as a composer, was the beating heart at the center of a worldwide bossa nova craze, following the success of Getz/Gilberto. A joint effort of the American tenor saxophonist Stan Getz and the Brazilian guitarist and singer João Gilberto, that album also served as a showcase for Jobim’s songs, including “The Girl From Ipanema,” a runaway smash.

The 50th anniversary edition of Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim has just been released in various formats, including two vinyl packages. And along with the music from the original album, it includes two previously unreleased tracks: A live medley from a television special, and part of a session reel for “The Girl From Ipanema,” which Sinatra and Jobim sing as a duet.

“Don’t let it run away, fellas, with the tempo,” Sinatra cautions at the top of the first take. “Just hold it down, let it settle down. Because it’s got a lot of — it’s got a gang of words.” After the take is finished, he calls for another one, “right away.” His decisive brusqueness strikes a jarring contrast to the singing, which is as delectably airy as a soufflé.

The commercial relevancy of bossa nova is one way to explain Sinatra’s keen interest in Jobim: He was aware of his tenuous position within a cultural moment increasingly defined by The Beatles. But his treatment of this music belies any charge of opportunism. While bossa nova presented a new angle for him as a singer — “I haven’t sung so soft since I had the laryngitis,” he quipped during the sessions — he clearly regarded the style as something more than a novelty.

“No other American pop star would so thoroughly immerse himself in the world of bossa,” writes Will Friedwald in his fine critical biography Sinatra! The Song is You: A Singer’s Art. “He not only recorded two whole albums’ worth of the stuff but sacrificed his signature stylistics in order to more smoothly fit into the new vernacular.”

Consider the sensitivity of Sinatra’s phrasing on “Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars,” a version of Jobim’s “Corcovado” with English lyrics by the critic Gene Lees.

The balance of voice and orchestration is so impeccably calibrated that it has effectively been canonized: When Diana Krall made her own bossa nova album in 2009, she named it Quiet Nights, enlisting Ogerman as arranger (who won a Grammy for his efforts).

In its original iteration, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim broke into the Top 20 and spent 28 consecutive weeks on the Billboard album chart. According to Michael Bourne, the host of Singers Unlimited on WBGO, it marked another layer of validation for bossa nova in the American pop mainstream. “Even after the album Getz/Gilberto won a Grammy as album of the year,” said Bourne, “the Sinatra/Jobim album was a musical apotheosis, a blessing of Jobim’s songs from America’s musical Pope.”

There was, however, one distinction that eluded the album. Sinatra had won album of the year at the previous two Grammy Awards — for September of My Years (1965) and A Man and His Music (1966) — but he wasn’t destined for a threepeat. While Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim was nominated, and perhaps even the frontrunner, the top honor went to another album that has stood the test of time: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
