  • John Pizzarelli is noted for his sensitive vocals, which recall the relaxed stylings of Nat "King" Cole and Chet Baker, as well as for his fluid, inventive guitar playing. On this album of covers of songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Pizzarelli wisely avoids the pitfalls of Ol' Blue Eyes imitations in favor of his own intimate approach, best heard on the set's more relaxed arrangements, like "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Nice and Easy," and "You Make Me Feel So Young." Both attention-grabbing and supportive, his expertly arranged big band accompaniment likewise evokes the ring-a-ding-ding of the Rat Pack era while steering clear of mere pastiche.
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.65) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "He has chosen wisely...Pizzarelli is backed by nine bright big band charts...all crisply played by the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra..."

JazzTimes (p.84) - "[S]marter and eminently more pleasurable than the dozens of cookie-cutter tributes that have preceded it."
