Come Dance with Me!
Track data is currently not available.
Performer: Frank Sinatra
Distributor: EMI Music Distribution
Notes: Personnel includes: Frank Sinatra, Keely Smith (vocals); Billy May (arranger). The final three tracks are mono. All tracks have been digitally remastered using 20-bit technology. COME DANCE WITH ME is Sinatra at his most ebullient; no down-hearted saloon songs or introspective ruminations here, just solid, swinging numbers that bring new meaning to the title song's exclamation; "what an evening for some Terpsichore." With punchy brass accents courtesy of Billy May (arguably Sinatra's jazziest arranger), the tunes leap out with unprecedented vivacity. Sinatra sounds relaxed but lively, and you can almost picture him sashaying across the dance floor with his objet d'amour in his arms as he delivers the romantic invitation of "Something's Gotta Give," "Cheek To Cheek" and of course "Come Dance With Me."
Q (7/99, p.146) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...closes the book on Sinatra's golden period....[it] remains a stonking danceband record in the old tradition..."
An icon of American music, Frank Sinatra defined sophisticated pop singing of the post-war era and spent more than 50 years in the limelight. After formative stints with Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, and others, Sinatra shot to worldwide fame through hit records and Hollywood movies. His hip, laid-back delivery defined cool, yet he also had a down-to-earth manner that connected easily with audiences. Ups and downs would follow him throughout his career--the details of his private life were not always fit for public consumption--but right up till the end, every comeback strengthened the intense loyalty of his fans.
