    This is my favorite live record ever. Sinatra @ The Sands 1965. With bitchin' intro by Bill Conrad!

    That's the stuff.

    I enjoy "Frank's Place" on XM.

    It's a classic.

    Another great live LP in a similar vein is "Ray Charles Live" from 1964. Great playing from the band including Hank Crawford and Fathead Newman. I think Quincy might have written some of the charts too but my memory is a bit fuzzy.

    Sinatra and the Basie band...what a great combo. Freddie Green had such a solid rhythm guitar thing going on (all acoustic too) and Sinatra's phrasing was always full of surprises. Vegas must have been fabulous back in the 60's (can't stand it now). Thanks for posting.
    Swang on,

    Oh, boy, Freddie Green is so great. I played guitar in high school stage bands for a couple of years, and that is what I was going for. It is such a heartbeat. I heard Basie and his band in around 1976 in a 3,000 seat hall. Green sat on a chair, leg crossed, looking oh so suave, just chomping away with no amp and no music. Geometrically, he was in the exact center of the stage, near the rear, but with nothing obstructing his view or sound. I can still see/hear it.

    A long time ago, a friend played me a Basie track where Green took a 4-bar solo. All chords, all 4 on the floor.

    I have a CD of Sinatra with Basie's small group, and it's amazing. I never wanted to admit to my parents that I liked Frank Sinatra, because it wasn't cool. Now, I don't care who knows it. The man was the best pop singer ever.
