Overview

Frankly Basie: Count Basie Plays the Hits of Frank Sinatra

Originally titled More Hits of the 50's and 60's, Frankly Basie: Count Basie Plays the Hits of Frank Sinatra, a salute to Frank Sinatra by the Count Basie Orchestra, is mostly closer to dance music than jazz. The original 12-song program featuring Billy Byers' arrangements is augmented by a "new" alternate take of "Hey! Jealous Lover" and two selections ("My Kind of Town" and "Come Rain or Come Shine") taken from the LP Basie Picks the Winners. "All of Me" is most memorable.
