Early Pop Icons at Work
- Sinatra’s career started in the era of sock hops and swing music
- In 1940, Tommy Dorsey hired a little-known Sinatra for his orchestra
- The two-year tenure resulted in 80 recordings; many are in this set
- Swing-style songs capture the crooner’s pre-megastardom
- Together, Sinatra and Dorsey set the foundations for the coming avalanche of lovelorn pop and rock tunes, including Sinatra’s own
- “The Dorsey band sound is marked by an easy, swaying pulse, and Sinatra’s voice flows like hot fudge.” – AllMusic on original compilation release
- “Not only did his freely interpretive approach pave the way for the idiosyncrasies of rock singing, but with his character a mix of tough-guy cool and romantic vulnerability, he became the first true pop idol.” – Rolling Stone
A Musical Behemoth
American icon Frank Sinatra is widely considered to be one of the finest singers and showmen in the history of pop music. His soaring vocals, devilish good looks, and Hollywood antics with the infamous Rat Pack have made Sinatra’s music and films indispensable mid-20th century artifacts that encapsulate a rich and storied time in American media history. Sinatra’s music, while often characterized by swinging brass sections and upbeat odes to love and life, ran the gamut of the modern human experience, a feat evidenced by his one-of-a-kind voice, exuberant yet turbulent persona, and irrevocable cultural influence.
