I didn't appreciate his voice until I was older. Just thought it was my "parents" music. To be so composed and brave enough to be the lead instrument is a testament to Frankie's talents. The greats will live forever.

Thanks for the treat Steve.

And completely turned it around in 1953 when he signed with Capitol. That led to a string of brilliant concept albums paired with the likes of Nelson Riddle, Billy May, and Gordon Jenkins. Songs for Swingin' Lovers! is one of my favorite albums, from any artist.

I didn't start listening to Sinatra until I was in my 30s. Now I have all of his Capitol records on vinyl and most of his Reprise sides as well. Now that I am pushing 50, September of My Years has taken on a special significance for me.

Thanks for the clip Steve.
