Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim is a 1967 studio album by Frank Sinatra, featuring Antonio Carlos Jobim.
The tracks were arranged and conducted by Claus Ogerman and his orchestra.
Along with Jobim’s original compositions, the album features three standards from the ‘Great American Songbook’, (“Change Partners”, “I Concentrate on You”, and “Baubles, Bangles and Beads”) arranged in the bossa nova style.
Sinatra and Jobim followed up this album with sessions for a second collaboration, titled Sinatra-Jobim. That album was briefly released on 8-track tape in 1970 before being taken out of print at Sinatra’s behest, due to concerns over its sales potential. Several of the Sinatra-Jobim tracks were subsequently incorporated in the Sinatra & Company album (1971) and the Sinatra-Jobim Sessions compilation (1979). In 2010 the Concord Records label issued a new, comprehensive compilation titled Sinatra/Jobim: The Complete Reprise Recordings.
At the Grammy Awards of 1968 Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
Recorded: January 30 – February 1, 1967, Hollywood, Los Angeles.
