LP Artwork: Ring-a-Ding, Ding! / Frank Sinatra

Buoyed with all the enthusiasm of a kid with a new toy, Frank Sinatra's first album recorded for his very own label - Reprise Records - was an upbeat affair. With West Coast jazz-style arrangements by Johnny Mandel, it found the singer in ebullient form with the title track written by his old pals, Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn.

The week's program, however, features the impressive version of the Schwartz/Dietz classic, You and the Night and the Music.
