I must admit I was shocked when I listened to THIS Frank Sinatra. All I remembered was a happy, intriguing gentleman, with snappy songs and melodies, and this album is the complete opposite: it’s an all-melancholy-and-heartbreak record. Dimery points out that it was released shortly after the end of Sinatra’s relationship with Ava Gardner.
It’s an amazing, cohered album, but anyone would enjoy it most after a break up, by the fireplace on a rainy day. Very slow, intense, but very relaxing music, that starts with “In The Wee Small Hours”. Sinatra reveals himself as a needy but respectful heartbroken lover with “I’ll Be Around” and “I See Your Face Before Me”.
Definitely a album to listen after a break up. It’s amazing that an album so far back as this, can explain everything you’re feeling today. Thanks Frank. “There’s nobody that cares about me. I’m just a soul who’s bluer than blue can be” #franksinatra #intheweesmallhours #blues #arichshadeofblue #gladtobeunhappy #moodindigo
Disco: In The Wee Small Hours Cantor: Frank Sinatra Ano de Lançamento: 1955 Gravadora: Capitol Melhor música: Can’t we be friends? (Sim, até ele temia ficar na friendzone.)
O primeiro de muitos, com certeza. Conhecia bem pouco sobre essa enorme lenda da música, Frank Sinatra. É um disco que foge totalmente do estilo de música que ouço, mas que me instigou a procurar mais obras do Frankie. Um álbum que exala romance e mostra que o “Olhos Azuis” é muito mais do que somente New York, New York. Pelo menos para mim, ele era só isso.
Meu sentimento: Quem diria? Gosto de um romance bem feito. MINHA NOTA: 9,0
