The late-'50s recordings of Sinatra were the ones that firmly cemented in the public consciousness the image of the hip, swinging cat with the fedora and vocal chops sharp enough to perform microsurgery. The arrangements laid down by right-hand man Nelson Riddle also set a standard for pop vocal recordings of the era, attaining a feel that's simultaneously punchy and sophisticated. Sinatra wasn't overly concerned with themes or concepts here, just with finding a solid group of songs around which he could wrap his golden tonsils. Classics by the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Rodgers and Hart and Duke Ellington may seem like song selection no-brainers in retrospect, but it must be remembered that these are the recordings that actually made those songs true classics in the first place.
