Sinatra. In the Wee Small Hours

My parents had this album, though I think I was the only one in the family who ever played it much. It is probably still in my mom's house. It was here I first heard Ellington's Mood Indigo, before I had a very good idea of who Duke was. Nice arrangements by Nelson Riddle. A wonderful version of It Never Entered My Mind, the great Rodgers and Hart song played by Miles in a classic recording. This might very well be Sinatra's best work. Part of it is the excellence of the songwriting and arrangements. All Frank had to do was sing.
