This is a compilation of the songs performed by Sinatra which were written by Sammy Cahn. Sammy Cahn is the Oscar winning writter of such hit motion picture songs as "The Tender Trap" and "Three Coins in the Fountain." After he met young Frank Sinatra singing with the Tommy Dorsey Band, he provided Sinatra with a number of songs that became hits and helped to make both men stars. In the early 1940s Sinatra was signed by MGM to appear in the musical Anchors Aweigh; he refused to sing unless Cahn wrote the material. In 1954 Cahn and Styne wrote "Three Coins in the Fountain" for Sinatra to sing in the film Three Coins in the Fountain. The song garnered Cahn his first Oscar. The two went on to have a long lasting and wonderful string of hits. If you are interested in getting the true feel of big band ballads, get this album. This compilation is something I would recomend to ANYONE, especially those who love sinatra.
