Frank Sinatra Nice 'n' Easy on Numbered-Edition 24K Gold CD from Mobile Fidelity
Let Ol’ Blue Eyes Go to Your Head: Sinatra’s 1960 Ballads Album Epitomizes Romance
Mobile Fidelity’s Scintillating 24K Gold CD Takes You into the Studio
Big-band vocal albums don’t come better than this. Neither do opportunities to hear the world’s greatest pop interpreter with a clarity, realism, sensitivity, and detail that transport you into the studio, leaving nothing but a few feet between you and the music. Yes, the sound is that good. So are the tunes.
Recorded in the spring of 1960 for Capitol, Nice ‘N’ Easy revisits many of the standards that a young Frank Sinatra sang on his way to becoming the best singer of his or any generation. Comprised of devotional ballads and midtempo love songs, the romantic set is a showcase for the vocalist’s peerless ability to create moods and demonstrates his growth into a mature performer capable of making the impossible seem effortless. Sinatra takes the meaning of the record’s title track to heart, and instills Nice ‘N’ Easy with a relaxed, cool, suave, gentle swing that became his trademark. Has there ever been a record that goes better with a glass of wine, dimmed lights, a fine stereo, and an amorous partner?
Evidence of the Chairman’s genius abound. Never before has it sounded so natural, rich, or transparent. The openness extends to Nelson Riddle’s legendary arrangements, which benefit from astounding instrumental separation, proper balances, microtonal insight, and an unlimited ceiling. Sinatra’s definitive baritone soars above it all, and the finite characteristics that make him so timeless—phrasing, tempo, timing, control, timbre, emotion—pour from standards like “Try a Little Tenderness,” “Fools Rush In,” and “Embraceable You.”
True to Sinatra’s demanding standards and black-tie sophistication, Mobile Fidelity’s mini-LP-style packaged 24k Gold CD is the ultimate in class and sourced from the original master tapes. But do not wait. Call Music Direct now for the your numbered copy!
