The Good & Bad Of 'Frank, Ella & Jobim'
8 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most of this 6o-minute made-for-TV concert footage involves Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Jobim was thrown in for a quick medley of Bossa Nova songs, which the rage at this particular time. It had a nice, pleasant sound and I wish they had spent more time with that music, but it didn't last long in this concert. Sinatra did sing the then-famous "The Girl From Ipanema" while Jobim accompanied on guitar.

The rest of the tape are the two heavyweights: Frank and Ella, two of the best pop singers ever. It's almost always a pleasure to hear Sinatra. His voice is so good and the way he "jazzes" up a number in excellent. He was a great showman, not just singer. Ella had a great voice, too, but, frankly, I would have preferred more of Sinatra.

The by-play between the two singers was terrible at times. Ella was no talker, just a singer and Frank's constant fawning over her was overdone. His jokes were lame, too. Still, where you can find a tape with these two "giants of the business" singing together?
