A Bit of Sinatra
05/03/2012 § 4 Comments
Thus far, March has been a month of Frank Sinatra and his contemporaries. Ella, Dean, and the rest of them have been in heavy rotation, but it is Frank I always return to. I especially love the live recordings and this collection of concert recordings in Vegas is my favorite: all smoky smartass swinging standards. Perfection. Much like these photos by John Dominis from the same era…
With daughter Nancy and Yul Brenner.
I quite enjoy the gentleman on the right and how high his trousers are.

Shawl-collar tuxedo fest, with Ed Sullivan!
