In The Wee Small Hours
Εταιρεία: Capitol Records
This exquisite after-hours ballad set was the first of Sinatra's dark heartbreak albums, and one of his most influential. Nelson Riddle's arrangements are so subtle that you don't even notice when a small jazz group replaces the orchestra. Along with Songs for Swingin' Lovers, this platter became the blueprint for pop and jazz releases of the 1950s.
