  • The fifth stage of grieving? Jun 17, 2016
    by Melanie L

    I recently heard "Wee Small Hours" again after many years, and was knocked out by it. For such a volatile man, Sinatra could express himself with great simplicity and tenderness, and he does here. After listening for the umpteenth evening in a row, I was vaguely reminded of something, and then realized it was the final stage of grieving a loss: acceptance.

    Maybe this is not the Sinatra album you want to go to sleep with, but it is a great album to take time to reflect life and relationships. Once again, there is an array of great writers: Rodgers and Hart, Carmichael, Porter, Arlen and others. There is even a song, one of my very favorites, with some lyrics written by Frank himself, ?This Love Of Mine?. This is one I can hum, as well as sing along and enjoy all day or night.

    It's a depressing collection of his work. I had high hopes for it but it just consistently disappointed me.

  • Different Enough To Be Required Listening Apr 2, 2009
    by RELinUSA

    I bought this CD after hearing how different Frank Sinatra sounded on it on "Piana Jazz" on Public Radio. The most memorable comment was, "Whenever I begin listening to it, I end up listening to the whole thing." How true. Use of this format changed the music industry, and Frank was obviously using it to express his melancholy--apparently about his relationship with Eva Gardner. Then I bought several more CD's of Sinatra-sung tunes. What a genius!
