Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim

Album Summary

Francis Albert Sinatra & Antônio Carlos Jobim is a 1967 album by Frank Sinatra and Antônio Carlos Jobim. The tracks were arranged and conducted by Claus Ogerman, accompanied by a studio orchestra. Along with Jobim's original compositions, the album features three standards from the Great American Songbook, ("Change Partners", "I Concentrate on You", and "Baubles, Bangles and Beads") arranged in the bossa nova style. Sinatra and Jobim followed up this album with sessions for a second collaboration, titled Sinatra-Jobim. That album was briefly released on 8-track tape (Reprise 8FH 1028) in 1969 before being taken out of print at Sinatra's behest, due to concerns over its sales potential. Several of the Sinatra-Jobim tracks were subsequently incorporated in the Sinatra & Company album (1971) and the Sinatra–Jobim Sessions compilation (1979). In 2010 the Concord Records label issued a new, comprehensive compilation titled Sinatra/Jobim: The Complete Reprise Recordings. At the 10th Annual Grammy Awards in 1968, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antônio Carlos Jobim was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, but lost to the Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Sinatra had won the previous two Grammy awards for album of the year, in 1967 and 1966. Jobim had to wait for Sinatra to return from a holiday in Barbados where he was taking a mutually agreed 'break' from his marriage to Mia Farrow.Guitarist Al Viola played on "Change Partners" due to Jobim's difficulty with the track, but is not credited on the album. Lyricists Aloysio de Oliveria and Ray Gilbert were also present at the sessions.The album was recorded on January 30 and February 1, 1967, at United Western Recorders in Hollywood, Los Angeles. Later in the evening of February 1, Sinatra and his daughter, Nancy, recorded their single "Somethin' Stupid".

I bet Sinatra was a total prick asshole and a shitty driver, but I love those sweet pipes of his... mmmm.... Sinatra is no replacement for Astrud Gilberto, however. Sinatra is a classic in himself and I wish he wouldn't have tried rewriting some of these Bossa Nova classics. Stay in your own damn lane, Frank! This is borderline offensive, is what it is.

"When 4chan cries, nae nae to me." - Frank Sinatra Great album, great vibe. Sinatra is in my blood, so of course I love this. None of his most classic hits, but clearly going for a specific atmosphere in this pairing with Jobim. I can't say I pulled out a ton of notable tracks, but the whole thing is great. I'd definitely listen to this again. Favorite tracks: The Girl from Ipanema (Amy Winehouse did it better), I Concentrate On You, Meditation. Album art: Love the smoky studio picture. I also love the framing around the picture. It's a really regal album cover, and I also love the use of full names. Great job, fellas. 4/5

Frankie is always pleasant, but he just doesn't seem as comfortable trying to adapt his style to bossa nova and it comes off as a little forced/trend-hoppy. He's smooth as butter, but butter doesn't go on everything.

Quel bonheur... Après une semaine difficile, marquée par une accumulation d'albums notés d'une simple paire d'étoiles, celle-ci s'annonce radieuse. Elle commence en ce lundi avec l'album Frankie Bossa Nova, qui, soit dit en passant, est une réussite. J'ai particulièrement aimé le morceau Ai Se Eu Te Pego même si ma préférée reste évidemment le tube Coup de Boule dans lequel Sinatra démarre en trombe avec son célèbre gimmick "attention c'est la danse du coup de boule !" Le crooner à la voix de velours est décidément à l'aise dans tous les styles.

I know he's supposed to be the King of Croon and the Sultan of Smooth but, to me, Sinatra always comes across as a sleazy egomaniac. That's what's on display here. The album gets three stars from me not because of Sinatra but in spite of him. Jobin is an amazing musician forced to play second fiddle to Sinatra's ego and it's a shame. I could have used ten times more Jobin and way less of ol' Frankie Blue Eyes.

I love this album, this is not my first time hearing it, so it's great to revisit it. Frank Sinatra's voice fits bossa nova so perfectly, so I am so grateful that this album even exists. Right from the start we get a classic. This isn't as good as the Gilberto version, but the guitar and horn section of this song give it a much grander feeling. Every song is so smooth, I got a nostalgic and emotional response from so many of these tracks, there's just something about them that hits me. I love the reworks of the American songs into bossa nova style, it works so well that I have a hard time imagining them as anything else. The synergy that Sinatra and Jobim have on these songs is astounding. I can just imagine them in the studio, cigarette smoke in the air, joking around in a manner that reflects the light and relaxed nature of the music. This is probably the smoothest and softest that I, and many others, have heard Sinatra, especially at the time in his career that this was released, I think it was a brave venture for him. I belive this album was very important for getting bossa nova into the American mainstream. I just want to reiterate that I love this album, and I could listen to it over and over again. Favorite Track: Baubles Bangles and Beads

Just beautiful, what else can I say. We grew up with Frankie in the house and it was great listening to a whole album by him and this album is definitely one of his best ones. What can beat The Girl From Ipanema, absolutely nothing? Well maybe Girl from the North Country but, a paisan like Frank Sinatra blows Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan outta da water. "Fughetta Bout it!" -Joseph Klein, Yes this is an original quote by me.

I’ve said it before, but…FINALLY. Frank Sinatra was a huge figure for me growing up. He was the Christmas CD we listed to each year. His greatest hits album was something I have listened to falling asleep from back when I stayed in Plano with my grandparents to a few days ago. My grandpa loved Frank and I do too. I’d been waiting to get an album of his but didn’t expect it to be this one. Pretty wild to name the title of your album the full names of both the performers, it’s a mouthful. I do love the album cover of Frank puffing and recording...that 1967 haze. It was a different time. I honestly don’t know much about Frank as a person but I’ve heard some things so when I say I love him, I mean as a musician. Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars was my favorite from this album but this is a perfect evening listening to album or something when going to sleep or to calm down. I’m always happy to listen to my favorite crooner.

Always love a little Frank. This one was an album I had never heard. It was a nice alternative from his typical big band sound, and had a more stripped down “island” sound. My main issue was that a lot of the songs sound the same. Other than that, a fantastic album from the Chairman himself.

Yeah, this smoooooooth. I like both Sinatra and Jobim, but I'm not a huge buff of either, and never heard their collaborative material before. It's bossa nova filtered through the big band tradition, as you might expect. Silky smooth and understated orchestra, with Jobim's gossamer guitar and Sinatra in his effortless lounge mood. The whole thing is chilled and quiet to the point of somnolent. But it's a thing of beauty. Ten tracks in under thirty mins too, which works perfectly for this style. One or two tracks aren't true perfection, so it's 4.5 from me. If you haven't heard this before you die, play it at your funeral.

I've been generally cynical so far in my reviews. Maybe I'm star-struck by the name "Sinatra", but I don't think so. This album is excellent. A majority of songs really land with me, taking me on a slow dance, emotion rising and falling, all the while comforted by Sinatra's sultry voice. Best album so far.

What makes Sinatra one of the greatest is his constant change. He loved music and singing and was always looking to new artists and influences and learning from them. Antonio Jobem was as hot as Sinatra and the Beatles in his home country of Brazil. When his Bossanova sound became popular worldwide he paired up with Sinatra for this classic. Sintra's velvet voice is tested for the slowed down pace and lower range than he's used to. Not one of my favorite Sintara albums, but it still gets a spin on occasion.

A fascinating record and an opportunity for Sinatra to show a softer, quieter side compared with his usual belting vocals. And whilst this album doesn’t hit the heights of his run of albums on the Capitol label, this is one of Sinatra’s better releases on his own Reprise label. Expressive and moving, Insensitive is a real highlight, fitting neatly alongside a slow tempo I Concentrate On You. The orchestrations throughout are marvellous and Jobim’s guitar playing is enchanting. What a special talent he was.

I was not expecting to like this, but lay that melancholy upon me! This album luxuriates with infinite sadness, like you're heartbroken but you're lying on the beach in Rio so it's not wholly bad. Each song takes it time, taking the listener one step deeper into sadness. There is no solution, not upbeat "you'll get over it" vibes. No, the album leaves you on that beach with tears in your eyes and the realisation that being there means nothing when there's no one by your side.

This was a very pleasant surprise. Knowing the big band sound Sinatra usually gives, this was different, that bossa nova style. The Girl From Ipanema is pretty much required if you're playing bossa nova, though, isn't it? The one song, "Wave".... Frank really went for that low note, didn't he? He was almost at the legendary brown note, he was singing so low. And he kept NAILING it. Really dug this, it was nice to hear, something to listen to on a quiet Sunday afternoon, except for maybe "Wave." That "cling togeTHERRRRR" would be a little disturbing.

It's nostalgia week apparently.. I've listen to a ton of Sinatra in my life, most of it not by choice. I definitely over the years learn to appreciate his music and dare I say enjoy some of it. Sinatra recorded a ton albums and murdered a ton of songs, this album however isn't one, I enjoyed it. I really enjoyed Jobim arrangements. Might be one of the few people under 75 that likes this.

A couple of Great American Songbook classics, a touch of easy cool bossa nova and Sinatra's inimitable swing amounts to a great album. 4 stars because it is not too long - any longer and there would be too much filler. As it is, there is a little dip around halfway through.

A very simple album that is very enjoyable. Nothing extra. Just nice orchestral sections and nice vocal performances. Also PSA if you’re writing 4 pages about an album on this list… no one is reading it. Stop treating this like a job. Goofy

Favourite track(s): The Girl From Ipanema; Baugles, Bangles and Beads For people not familiar with Bossa Nova, this album can serve as a nice introduction. It has the Sinatra instrumentation with its longing strings and soft brass instruments. But it is certainly no more than an introduction. This is clearly a Sinatra album and while Jobim's name is in the title, his impact seems limited. The Girl From Ipanema being the opener, one might suspect that the studio chose to rely on another artist's work, only putting a little twist on Sinatra's regular style in order to sell more copies. Maybe that is why the tracks which seem to have been written by and for Jobim in part do not strike one as all to special. Maybe both artist saw eye to eye on later releases. I would have liked the album even better if that was the case here. But still, it's Bossa Nova Sinatra. I cannot not like that.

Everyone knows who Frank Sinatra is. Who is Antônio Carlos Jobim? For starters, he's the original songwriter of The Girl From Ipanema, which is a legendary bossa nova song that has since become one of the most recorded songs in history. Sinatra and Jobim do a joint English-Portuguese rendition on this album (can you tell who sings in which language?), and do a wonderful job. For my money, the Stan Getz version sung by Astrud Gilberto is the better performance, but Sinatra still does a wonderful job. Aside from The Girl From Ipanema, Jobim's greatest achievement would be his popularization of bossa nova outside of Brazil. It would be, in part, thanks to Getz that bossa nova would catch on in the States during the early/mid-60's. This almost certainly caught the attention of Sinatra or some Reprise executive, which lead to what we have here. The songs are so breezy and wonderful, and Sinatra's cool voice is a natural fit. Even if the songs were originally written for Portuguese tongue, the English translation rarely feels clunky or out of place. Arrangements are also excellent, with Claus Ogerman conducting the band for Jobim's songs. It's also worth mentioning that there are a few American Songbook songs on the album as well, done in the bossa nova style. If you asked me to identify them, I probably wouldn't be able to because they fit so well. In every way, Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim is a match made in heaven. A beautiful album that is pleasing to the ears.

If we are here to judge albums then this one is bad. It has 3 times the same song. Even if it is a nice song... Good music, bad collections of songs... definitely not a concept album.

Not much use made out of the collaboration to give it the branding of a Bossa Nova album, but it’s not a bad listen for the background. It simply just doesn’t capture Sinatra at his best or anything remotely Brazilian. For that reason it left an average impression.

I knew the first song. And then the rest happened. It didn't change much and Frank didn't wanna fuck around singing for too long with all those cocktails to drink. Short and sharp. Not my kinda lyrics but I was genuinely taken by the horns and string sections. I liked it. I see why old cunts love it.
