One of the greatest hours in TV history
6 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sinatra is at his best. While the previous "Man and His Music" specials are masterful, this one is the best of them all. Nelson Riddle conducts the orchestra and the arrangements are by Riddle and Gordon Jenkins. Ella's "Body and Soul" is stunning. Jobim makes a rare US TV appearance and does some numbers from his album with Sinatra. Even though Sinatra and Ella's "Goin' Out of My Head" is a bit silly, they perform a wonderful medley towards the end of the show. Why didn't they record together? While Sinatra is the king of cool and a fine jazz singer, Ella sings circles around him. The only flaw in the show is a long dramatic scene with Sinatra singing to a Jenkins string laden arrangement.
