Nice work by Sinatra and Fitzgerald...
18 May 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

FRANK SINATRA should dispense with the banter between him and guest stars like ELLA FITZGERALD and just concentrate on the music. When he does, the show is a pure pleasure to watch and listen to.

His pure enjoyment of being a performer is reflected here, at his best when just doing his thing on standards like WHAT NOW MY LOVE and Kern's OLD MAN RIVER, or simply doing slow ballads to a Bossa Nova beat, like QUIET NIGHTS, CHANGE PARTNERS, I CONCENTRATE ON YOU and THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA accompanied by ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM on the guitar.

ELLA FITZGERALD gets a lot of time to do her special brand of singing and is especially good on BODY AND SOUL, DON'T BE THAT WAY and STOMPIN' AT THE SAVOY.

The finale is a rousing duet by Sinatra and Fitzgerald on THE LADY IS A TRAMP backed by the wonderful Nelson Riddle Orchestra.

Pure gold for Sinatra fans. Only drawback is the rather awkward staging, which has a partial audience visible throughout on platform seats behind the singers.
