Linda's What's New
is such a great album in the tradition of 1940s-1950s big-band, female, torch singers, and you're right Max, Nelson's arrangements are breathtaking in their support of Linda's vocals!
Summer Wind has a very interesting background....
I first heard Wayne Newton's version....
Any time Sinatra teamed up with Nelson Riddle it was magical.
I belive he was the best arranger ever.
I read a biography on him....If I remember right ..
He had a miserable life because of his wife ...
I think he had a big affair with Rosemary Clooney...
When he and Linda Ronstat found each other that's when the magic really began to happen. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_Wind
