That's Life by Frank Sinatra
Released: Nov 1966
Label: Frank Sinatra Enterprises
"Strangers in the Night" may've been a cheesy hit, but Sinatra built a fine jazz record around it. That's Life flips that equation -- it kicks off with the fantastic Ray Charles-style smash but follows it up with a completely acceptable but inessential album. Most of the blame belongs to arranger Ernie Freeman, who was crafting Nashville-style hits for Dean Martin. Not all is lost, though: three French imports (Gilbert Becaud's "What Now My Love" and "Sand & Sea," and Michel Legrand's "I Will Wait For You") come out on top, while Andre Previn's "You're Gonna Hear From Me" isn't far behind.
