    Of the nearly 300 tunes Sinatra recorded for Columbia in the 1940s, suprisingly few were "swing" or rhythm numbers. By 1950, his career faltering, the still-striving singer was looking for a new start. Columbia had just brought out their new Long Playing (LP) record format and an extended recording session was scheduled, featuring up-tempo arrangements by specialist George Sirvano. Sinatra's voice was in such bad shape from neglect, however, that producer Mitch Miller simply turned off the vocal mike and recorded just the orchestra which the singer later tracked in secret session (such practices being against union rules).
    No matter. The resulting eight-song LP was originally issued as SING AND DANCE WITH FRANK SINATRA, a new musical direction further developed only when the singer signed with Capitol Records a full three years later. This meticulously restored collection expands upon the original LP with 10 other Sirvano arrangements from the Columbia years, including the always fresh "I've Got A Crush on You" as well as "The Hucklebuck," derived" from Charlie Parker's "Now's the Time" and about as close to rock & roll as Frank Sinatra (or Charlie Parker) would ever get.
