CD Review: Frank Sinatra - Antonio Carlos Jobim, "The Complete Reprise Recordings"


My review of Francis Albert Sinatra - Antonio Carlos Jobim: The Complete Reprise Recordings was posted to Popdose today:

When it comes to the music of romantic longing, it’s hard to top the songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim, especially when set to the languid bossa nova rhythms that he helped to pioneer. Add Frank Sinatra to the mix as a vocalist, and you have an unstoppable combination. In 1967, Sinatra and Jobim recorded the album Francis Albert Sinatra/Antonio Carlos Jobim for Sinatra’s Reprise Records. The album reached #18 on the Billboard chart, and stayed on the chart for 28 weeks, quite an achievement at the height of the rock era.”
