Where Are You? is perfect in every sense. Recorded when Frank Sinatra was 42, the torch album finds him in impeccable voice and spirit. The dozen tracks fit together as a unified whole; it's difficult to imagine one song missing, or another added. Arranger Gordon Jenkins reads Sinatra's mind, affording him with lush arrangements that break hearts and underscore deliberation. Topping it off, Sinatra's interpretive skills utterly astonish. Genres aside, this 1957 Capitol classic is indisputably one of the 10 best vocal pop efforts made in the 1950s.
Mastered from the original master tapes, this Hybrid Mono SACD version focuses the instrumentalists, images, vocals, and ambience in a transparent manner that exceeds the detail on the more-common stereo version. In addition, this reissue marks the first time this gem has been made available in mono in several decades. Akin to Mobile Fidelity's previous Sinatra titles, the sound and clarity on this disc takes the Voice into your room, puts him on an imaginary studio stage, and gives you your own private concert.
