Frank Sinatra: A Man and His Music + Ella + Jobim (1967)

*** (out of 4)

This is the third concert special the superstar did in three consecutive years. This time out he's joined by Ella Fitzgerald and Antonio Carlos Jobim and the overall show is really punched over over the previous two, although the second one is still my favorite. This time out the music has more of a Jazz sound to it and Sinatra plays it up loud and really fast. Jobim only plays on one song and I think this is the weakest part of the show as it appears this scene was just thrown in at the last second. The performance between the two isn't really bad but it does stop the show in its tracks. Sinatra performs "What Now My Love", "Old Man River", "Change Partners", "Quiet Nights" and a few more. Ella gets to sing a rousing version of "Body and Soul" and also joins Sinatra on duets of "They Can't Take That Away from Me" and "The Lady is a Tramp". The highlight actually isn't the music but the kidding between Sinatra and Ella in between the music. The way Sinatra is able to joke on himself and poke fun of a few of his films is very funny and charming.
