Sinatra reinterpreting himself. A constant in the Voice’s career Recording previously immortalized songs again and making it something enriching is not within everyone’s reach. You will all remember the tremendous success of their “Duets” albums in 1993 and 1994; an almost octogenarian crooner, singing (quite well, by the way), in the midst of a constellation of musical stars of all genres, the regal standards that he had been on the stand for six decades managed to crown lists dominated by Mariah Carey and Garth Brooks .

Sinatra’s Sinatra

But Frank had been reinventing his songbook from the beginning; When he signed with Capitol Records he brilliantly and surprisingly revisited many songs recorded at Columbia. And when recording with his own label, Reprise, his vocal cords once again paraded, in new costumes, old golden beauties of the American songbook chiseled into his voice during the first two stages of his career: For example, “Night And Day“, Cole Porter‘s classic, has seven different recordings in the Sinatra canon, from dancing under the stars in the 40s to the disco fever of the 70s, through sophisticated swing and romantic monument, always coherent with the times and the personal circumstances of the artist.

But logically there were moments in which Frank reviewed his material with little relevance, and he even dedicated an entire album to the task: “Sinatra’s Sinatra“, which began recording on April 29, 1963.

The album is more inspired by the economic than by the artistic. It is an attempt to compete in record stores with the material from Columbia and Capitol. But in every Sinatra album there are always unforgettable moments that justify taking it home; Although Nelson Riddle’s arrangements on this album are either identical to the originals or even insubstantial, the stereo recording increases the spectacularity of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” Frank’s more mature playing makes the versions of “Withcraft” and “Young At Heart” very special, and the approach to “In The Wee Small Hours” is sweeter, less tragic than the 1955 original. And there are two songs too unreleased: “Call Me Irresponsible” and “Pocketful of Miracles“.
