Info for A Jazz Portrait Of Frank Sinatra

Master pianist Oscar Peterson works the ivories in typically impressive fashion on this 1959 tribute to Frank Sinatra. Performing with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen, Peterson runs through 12 instrumental versions of songs made popular by Ol' Blue Eyes, including, naturally, faithful renditions of Sinatra signatures 'Witchcraft' and 'I Get a Kick Out of You.'

Though the trio takes a swinging, intensely jazzy approach to these tunes, there is no excessive stretching out here--each cut clocks in at less than four minutes. Likewise, Peterson, Brown, and Thigpen color strictly inside the lines here, keeping things highly melodic, laid-back, and elegant. This is music more appropriate to a candlelit dinner than to a smoky club. But the appeal of „A Jazz Portrait Of Frank Sinatra“ is in this very distinction; Peterson and company quite obviously set this date to make an intimate, romantic, and beautifully listenable record.

„Pianist Oscar Peterson's Frank Sinatra tribute features his trio (with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen) playing easy listening jazz versions of a dozen songs associated with the singer. The renditions are all under four minutes and are highlighted by 'Come Dance with Me,' 'Just in Time,' 'I Get a Kick Out of You,' and 'How About You?' This is not one of Oscar Peterson's most essential dates, but it is swinging and enjoyable.“ (Scott Yanow, AMG)
