This morning I was listening to the "ol' blue eyes is back" album by Sinatra from 1973. Such gorgeous singing and beautiful selection of songs.
It puts the heart at rest, gives room for fresh feelings, especially during the Christmas Holidays, to reminisce in your emotional space. A feel good place!
Here is a great quote by Mr. Sinatra about singing a song: "Sing the lyric not the words ." This philosophy of vocal acting, the nuance of the words, the shading of the various meanings of thoughts, the arc of the melodic line, it's all there when you listen to "Sinatra." This LP is 45 years old and still speaks to me as if it was recorded today. Thank you Mr. Sinatra!
He's the north star of vocal song interpretation!
