When Frank Sinatra left the Harry James band after six months to join the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in 1940, singers were still considered hired bit players. It took Sinatra and a few thousand screaming bobby-soxers to prove that singers could be the stars of the show. During his two-year stint with the hugely popular Dorsey band, Sinatra developed a more conversational delivery, with phrasing inspired by Dorsey's trombone lines, and a fluid way of bending notes that would become his signature style of crooning. You can hear the 25-year-old upstart coming into his own on these 44 tracks, crisply remastered from vinyl sources. Regrettably, early versions of Night And Day, Without A Song, You're Breaking My Heart and Devil May Care have been left off, yet there's still a lot to love for fans of Young Blue Eyes.
