Tommy Dorsey & Frank Sinatra – The Song Is You


A coletânea “The Song Is You” da gravadora RCA traz o trombonista e band leader Tommy Dorsey e o cantor Frank Sinatra, que na época era um dos crooners da orquestra de Dorsey, juntamente com a cantora Connie Haines e o grupo The Pied Pipers. Segundo alguns biógrafos de Sinatra, esse trabalho teve grande influência em sua carreira. Aconselhado por Dorsey ele começou a fazer natação como exercício para adquirir fôlego e controlar melhor a respiração, e a partir daí passou a cantar com mais equilíbrio, usando sua voz com maestria na interpretação das canções da orquestra.

Sinatra deixou o grupo em 1942 para seguir carreira solo. A despedida se deu no programa de rádio “Fame and Fortune” transmitido pela rede NBC, onde apresentou seu substituto, o crooner Dick Haymes.


A caixa The Song Is You é composta por 5 CDs e um livreto ricamente ilustrado. As gravações vão de 1940 até 1942 (monofônicas) e as interpretações de Mr. Blue Eyes ainda jovem associadas à competência da banda de Tommy Dorsey valem a audição.
