Frank Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim – Francis Albert Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim (Vinyl LP)
Frank Sinatra’s acclaimed 1967 album with Brazilian music legend Antonio Carlos Jobim, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim, has been remastered for its 50th Anniversary and is being released on heavyweight 180-gram vinyl LP. Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim brought together two maestros from divergent musical worlds in a serene sigh of sun-dappled bossa-nova.
1967 was, famously, the Summer Of Love – but while for many that conjures up psychedelia, hippies and The Beatles in their full Sgt Pepper’s regalia, elsewhere there was an altogether more subtle musical revolution taking place. Ever since it emerged in Brazil, in the late 50s, bossa nova had become the epitome of cool for some jazz fans looking to broaden their horizons. Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd had helped take it into the mainstream with their Jazz Samba LP of 1962. By the end of the decade, Frank Sinatra had also been bitten by the bossa bug.
Wholly evocative of a time and a place – sundowners by the beach; far away sea breezes – Francis Albert Sinatra & Antônio Carlos Jobim climbed to No. 19 in the US, and sat on the charts for 28 weeks. It remains a unique recording in Sinatra’s career, and a reminder of two musical giants at their best.
