By 1967, bossa nova had become quite popular within jazz and traditional pop audiences, yet Frank Sinatra hadn't attempted any Brazil-influenced material. Sinatra decided to record a full-fledged bossa nova album with the genre's leading composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim. Arranged by Claus Ogerman and featuring Jobim on guitar and backing vocals, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim concentrated on Jobim's originals, adding three American classics — "Baubles, Bangles and Beads," "Change Partners," and "I Concentrate on You" — that were rearranged to suit bossa nova conventions. The result was a subdued, quiet album that used the Latin rhythms as a foundation, not as a focal point. Supported by a relaxed, sympathetic arrangement of muted brass, simmering percussion, soft strings, and Jobim's lilting guitar, Sinatra turns in an especially noteworthy performance; he has never sounded so subtle, underplaying every line he delivers and showcasing vocal techniques that he never had displayed before. Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim doesn't reveal its pleasures immediately; the album is too textured and understated to be fully appreciated within one listen. After a few plays, the album begins to slowly work its way underneath a listener's skin, and it emerges as one of his most rewarding albums of the '60s.
Sinatra at the top of his game and Jobim at the top of his.
Grew up with R&R Jazz, Fusion Rock etc 73-85 lp phase.
This has to be in my top 50. A Classic. Takes you too a place where art was the only end product on this emotional LP.
Timeless, Sinatra's best ever.
BEAUTIFUL, SOULFUL & DIFFERENT SINATRA
I've owned this album - 33 rpm, remember those? - since it first came out. Even though I have the equipment to do it, I'm too lazy to transfer it to mp3s, so I finally broke down and bought it. Again. There is nothing else like it in Sinatra's repertoire and some of the songs can still bring me almost to tears; others get me on my feet, dancing. You don't have to be a fan of either man to fall in love with this music.
