Sinatra: New York (Box Set)
Released: Oct 2009
Label: Frank Sinatra Enterprises
Frank Sinatra was from New Jersey and spent the bulk of his career in Los Angeles, yet he is inextricably linked to Manhattan's glamour and grit. This box set highlights NYC concert appearances across five decades. The short 1950s and '60s sets include a reunion with Frank's old boss Tommy Dorsey and a "thank you" concert to workers at the United Nations. There are also complete concerts from the vocalist's years as a touring juggernaut. There are many gems, including an exquisite revisit of "This Love of Mine," an extended ballad medley from '74 and a jazz rip through "Pennies From Heaven."
