96 – Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim

Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim


This is a wonderful return to the 1001 journey.  Frank Sinatra, now in a slight decline in his prolific career has never sounded better. Antonio Carlos Jobim is a counterpoint to Sinatra on the guitar.  He was the original composer of “The Girl from Ipanema” and his contribution to the album is a pleasant one.  Dindi, pronounced “Ginjee”, is a perfect track too.

In the style of Bossa Nova, this is a wonderfully produced and orchestrated piece of work.  It was nominated for a Grammy as best album

Favourite Track – The Girl from Ipanema, Dindi

Rating – 7.4

Released – March 1967
