A Swingin’ Affair!

Artist: Frank Sinatra

Year: 1957

Genre: Swing

Grade: B+

A Swingin’ Affair! is the only LP released in Sinatra’s prime that sounds like he’s going through the motions. The arrangements are standard, big band swing, lacking both musical depth and emotional resonance. Even Nelson Riddle is going half-assed.
