Product Description

CD96097 Frank Sinatra Conducts Alec Wilder

This is a real gem! Six pieces of jazz-inflected light music by American songwriter and composer Alec Wilder, conducted by Frank Sinatra at the height of his "crooner" fame in the 1940's. If you like Jacques Ibert and Eric Coates, you'll like this.

Incidentally, the solo parts in the "Air for Oboe" and "Air for English Horn" are played by Mitch Miller, who at the time was one with Sinatra in their mutual desire to promote Wilder's music (Sinatra also recorded two of Wilder's pop songs around the same time). Years later, when Miller became director of popular music at Columbia, he and Sinatra fought bitterly over song choices and arrangements, and Sinatra later blamed Miller for the decline of his career in the early 1950's.
