Product Overview

International superstar Michael Bolton has taken on another extraordinary challenge with Bolton Swings Sinatra (PASSION MUSIC CO./Concord Records). The collection finds him singing classics like "New York, New York," "Night and Day," "My Funny Valentine," "Fly Me to the Moon," "Girl From Ipanema" and "That’s Life," and bringing in special guest Nicollette Sheridan for a duet on "The Second Time Around."

"For years I’ve kept a list of dream projects," Bolton notes. "At the top of that list was an album of songs made famous by Frank Sinatra."

Supervising the arrangements and orchestrations down to the last note, he’s created an affectionate, dynamic tribute to some of the greatest recordings of the 20th century. The result will be a revelation even for longtime fans – passionate, playful, boisterous, intimate, and everything in between; Bolton Swings Sinatra is a dazzling pairing of singer and material.

Adult Contemporary singer Michael Bolton built his career singing passionate, sometimes theatrical soft-pop tunes that made him a superstar in the 1980s and '90s. By the turn of the 2000s, however, Bolton was changing his style, exploring various genres (including opera on '98's MY SECRET PASSION), and refining his vocal approach.
2006's BOLTON SWINGS SINATRA finds the singer taking on songs made famous by the Chairman of the Board, and doing so in a restrained, classy manner that may surprise folks who only remember the singer from his '90s hitmaking days. Bolton swings and croons competently on "Fly Me to the Moon" and "I've Got You Under My Skin," among others, and his surprising duet with Nicollette Sheridan on "The Second Time Around" weighs in as one of the highlights. While Sinatra fanatics may prove a hard sell on this one, BOLTON SWINGS SINATRA is a strong, admirable effort.
