Sinatra–Jobim Sessions

Sinatra–Jobim Sessions

The Sinatra–Jobim Sessions is a 1979 double LP compilation album of Frank Sinatra's work with Antônio Carlos Jobim. The album was published only in Brazil by producer Roberto Quartin, and has never been re-released on vinyl or CD until 2010 when it was re-mastered and released under The Frank Sinatra Collection and became available world wide.

All but three songs recorded by Sinatra and Jobim in 1967 and 1969 were released on Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim (1967) and Sinatra & Company (1971). The tracks "Bonita", "Sabiá", and "Off Key (Desafinado)", however, were previously only available on the 8-track Sinatra-Jobim (1970), which was quickly pulled from release [1]. The first two of these tracks are included on Sinatra-Jobim Sessions, making it eagerly sought by collectors. "Off Key (Desafinado)" was not included here and remained largely unavailable until Sinatra's The Complete Reprise Studio Recordings was released in 1998. This collection also included two recordings which do not actually feature Jobim, "Drinking Again" [2] and "Manhã De Carnaval". In 2010 the Concord Records label issued a new compilation entitled Sinatra/Jobim: The Complete Reprise Recordings.

Sinatra and Jobim worked together for a final time in 1994 on Duets II, recording a cover of "Fly Me to the Moon".
