Frank Sinatra - Jazz for the Recession



Frank Sinatra: 'The Voice'

He had a lot of nicknames: "Chairman of the Board," "Ol' Blue Eyes," "Frankie Boy," "Swoonatra" or simply "The Voice." But for all his aliases — not to mention his place in popular culture — Frank Sinatra's vocal instrument left a permanent mark on 20th-century America. His versions of the country's popular songs set a definitive standard for singers and instrumentalists alike.


The Jazz Mix looks at the recession.
