A Swingin' Affair! ranks among one of the worst albums in Sinatra's catalog. But it's a wonder why--it's a hell of a listen, entertaining and fun. It was his hardest-driving swing on a record until Billy May came along that next year. And coming off Songs for Swingin' Lovers!, what could go wrong?The problems with A Swingin' Affair! are purely conceptually. When we think of Sinatra's Capitol years, we are supposed to praise them all like they are the holy grail--but A Swingin' Affair! is when it all comes together. It breaks Sinatra's spell--Riddle's arrangements are too all-over-the-place for Sinatra to work his magic. Listen to "I Won't Dance" or "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and you'll see what I mean. It's claustrophobic. There's a lack of the craft of genius the Sinatra-Riddle partnership had with Swingin' Lovers!.The album puts it into perspective how formulaic Sinatra's Capitol output is--if he later "Come ____ with Me" albums didn't paint the picture clear enough. Even the Sinatra-Riddle output was formulaic. And while they tend to make genuinely enjoyable records, the swing records of this period simply recreated or expanded Swing Easy! across 45-minute records. The added brass here only diminishes a masterpiece that should have been made.Highlights: "Night and Day," "No One Ever Tells You," "The Lonesome Road," and "From This Moment On."
This is my favorite of all the swinging albums that Sinatra did. Night and Day and I've Got Plenty O' Nothin are classic Sinatra.
