This month, the Jazz Record Art Collective is getting a little sentimental as the Myles Hayes Quintet performs Frank Sinatra’s Songs for Swingin' Lovers!, a saccharine 1956 classic!
"Songs for Swingin' Lovers!, is arguably Frank Sinatra's greatest swing set. Like Sinatra's previous Capitol albums, Songs for Swingin' Lovers! consists of reinterpreted pop standards, ranging from the 10-year-old "You Make Me Feel So Young" to the 20-year-old "Pennies From Heaven" and "I've Got You Under My Skin." Sinatra is supremely confident throughout the album, singing with authority and joy. That joy is replicated in Nelson Riddle's arrangements, which manage to rethink these standards in fresh yet reverent ways.
Working with a core rhythm section and a full string orchestra, Riddle writes scores that are surprisingly subtle. "I've Got You Under My Skin," is a perfect example of how Sinatra works with the band. Both swing hard, stretching out the rhythms and melodies but never losing sight of the original song. This recording never loses momentum. The great songs keep coming and the performances are all stellar, resulting in one of Sinatra's true classics."
