Nancy Sinatra on 1963 Studio Set: “The Finest Collection of (Sinatra’s) Career”
Paired with Nelson Riddle, Sinatra Achieves New Heights : Epic Arrangements, Gargantuan Orchestrations
Nancy Sinatra couldn’t be more on the nose. Recorded onto 35mm film in 1963 at the Goldwyn Studios Soundstage, the record pairs the Voice with longtime collaborator Nelson Riddle and a gigantic orchestra. Consequently, the album’s name refers not to a live performance but the music’s epic grandness and the orchestra’s huge size. Captured over four sessions in four days, the undertaking involved upwards of 60 musicians.
Thematically, half of the albumfeatures Rodgers and Hammerstein compostions while the other half also pulls from popular Broadway shows. True to the theatrical adage of leaving the audience wanting more, The Concert Sinatra will have every listener wishing it lasted forever. Everthing here is uttlerly magnificent. Using his unparalleled breath conrol techniques and in the best voice of his career, Sinatra matches Riddle’s sweeping arrangements, turning in resplendent performances that are as powerful, majestic, and dynamic as Riddle’s surging instrumental support.
