Ha 11 anos hoje saía de cena uma das mais importantes figuras do "show business" mundial que já passaram por este nosso mundo de Deus: Francis Albert Sinatra.

Frank partiu e com ele sua bela voz, seu talento e entusiasmo de viver. Mas, para nosso fortunio, deixou para trás o seu legado musical e mais do que isso, o seu indiscutivel e marcante estilo.

Daqui a cem , duzentos ou quinhentos anos, em algum lugar, alguém com certeza estará ouvindo Sinatra, se emocionando com as suas interpretações e magnificas leituras.

"Sinatra music is timeless" disse com sabedoria Tony Bennett hoje pela manhã no "Today Show" em Nova York. Nada mais certo, nada mais verdade.

Sinatra vive e continuará alimentando nossas almas com sua musica, para todo o sempre.

Louvado seja então Frank Sinatra, o senhor das canções.
Humberto Amorim

LOS ANGELES — Frank Sinatra Enterprises announced an agreement today with the Concord Music Group to release select titles from Sinatra’s Reprise Records catalog, including an unreleased live recording. The agreement commences on May 5 with the first two titles: My Way 40th Anniversary Edition, which includes two previously unreleased tracks and the never-before-available Live At The Meadowlands, the legendary 1986 live album that spotlights Sinatra back in his New Jersey stomping grounds, wooing a sold-out crowd. Both titles will also be available at all digital music providers.Produced by Don Costa and Sonny Burke, My Way was released in March 1969 and features a varied collection of contemporary pop songs, including Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson,” The Beatles’ “Yesterday,” Ray Charles’ “Hallelujah I Love Her So,” and the iconic title track, “My Way,” which would become his career theme song. The song occupies a special place in popular music, influencing generations of musicians, from Elvis Presley to the Sex Pistols, both of whom conspicuously recorded their own versions. Famous Sinatraphile Bono, who contributes the My Way 40th Anniversary Edition liner notes, wrote of the song, “..[it’s] a boast – more kiss-off than send-off – embodying all the machismo a man can muster about the mistakes he’s made on the way from here to everywhere.” Also included are two unreleased tracks: Stevie Wonder’s classic “For Once In My Life, recorded on August 13, 1969 for the Sinatra television special, and a live version of “My Way,” recorded on October 24, 1987, at Reunion Arena in Dallas.
Live At The Meadowlands, recorded March 14, 1986, features 18 previously unreleased tracks. For this now-legendary hometown show, Sinatra showcased songs from every phase of his stellar career, mixing standbys such as “One For My Baby,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” with late-period classics such as “L.A. Is My Lady” and “Theme From New York, New York.” The long-anticipated release of Live At The Meadowlands holds special significance among Sinatra fans as it’s one of the most sought-after and hard-to-find concert recordings of his career. Hank Cattaneo, Sinatra’s long time production manager and confidante, wrote the set’s liner notes.
