Sinatra – the Capitol Years

Lane has an entire section of her CD filing system taken up with Sinatra – the Capitol Years.

Francis “Frank” Sinatra (1915-1998) was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the twentieth century. Beginning his career in the big band era, he found success as a solo artist in the 1940s. One of the biggest performers at Las Vegas in the 1950s, he also forged a successful career as a Hollywood actor. Sinatra won eleven Grammy Awards, including the Legend and Lifetime Awards, and continued recording and touring until shortly before his death.

In 1953, Sinatra made a career revival by signing a contract with Capitol Records. Between 1954 and 1962 he brought out 22 albums which contain some of his best known songs, such as I Get a Kick Out of You, My Funny Valentine, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Young at Heart, The Lady is a Tramp, and Come Fly With Me. These would all become concert standards for him.
