More About This Book

Overview

Frank Sinatra - Ol' Blue Eyes is the biography of Frank Sinatra, an iconic American singer and Academy Award-winning actor. Beginning his musical career in the swing era with Harry James and Tommy Dorsey, Sinatra became a solo artist with great success in the early to mid-1940s, being the idol of the "bobby soxers." Although his professional career had stalled by the 1950s, it was reborn in 1954 after he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Sinatra signed with Capitol Records and released several critically lauded albums (such as In the Wee Small Hours, Songs for Swingin' Lovers, Come Fly with Me, Only the Lonely and Nice 'n' Easy). He left Capitol to found his own record label, Reprise Records (finding success with albums such as Ring-A-Ding-Ding, Sinatra at the Sands and Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim), toured internationally, and fraternized with the Rat Pack and President John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s. Frank Sinatra - Ol' Blue Eyes is highly recommended for those interested in reading more about this celebrated entertainer.
