The Sinatra Christmas Album


I overheard Ol’ Blue Eyes at a coffee shop singing a Christmas song yesterday, so I had to go home and buy the album it came from. I buy commercial music from ZDigital, but I’m sure the other usual suspects have it.

I was expecting it to be a swinging affair with lots of brass and that fat, big band sound that I’ve always loved. There were a few tracks like that, but the rest was more soulful, intimate, and chill than I thought. It was a side of Frank I’m not as familiar with, and both Clara and I liked it a lot.

I might need to look out for the original vinyl if I can get my hands on it.
