In our review of 2015’s Shadows in the Night, we wrote:

“For some who don’t get it, even the conclusive proof of his distinctive takes on 10 Great American Songbook gems previously tracked by the man known now and forever as The Voice, Frank Sinatra, won’t persuade. Okay, they don’t care for the timbre of his voice (hence missing the marvelous cornucopia of its metamorphoses over the last half century… their loss not mine).

“Dylan pays loving homage to the Chairman of the Board’s singing without a trace of imitation; instead, he takes from the formidable skill set of Sinatra’s techniques – especially phrasing a micrometer behind the beat – and uses it to his own best effects.”
