Day 256. “In the Wee Small Hours” by Frank Sinatra

I’ve never heard this album. Yes, I’ve listened to Franky Blue Eyes plenty of times…but just the popular hits. This is definitely different from the “New York, New York” Frank that I’m used to. From what I’ve read, this was a groundbreaking album of its time (1955). It was one of the first concept albums. Rather than being a collection of singles/hits, it was an album that presented a statement.

I chose this album to wrap up the year because of that. The purpose of this musical journey was to appreciate the art of an album.

Beautiful.
