Swing Easy - The Pick Of The Pack
Featuring 66 tracks and over 3 hours of music, this is a superlative 3 CD collection of popular recordings by the irrepressible Rat Pack trio of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. 'Swing Easy' is a tribute to the magic, mayhem and musicality of this unholy trinity of talent!
It was Las Vegas in 1955 that actress Lauren Bacall was confronted by the unforgettable sight of a dishevelled looking bunch of Hollywood stars; her husband Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, David Niven and Judy Garland among them. Turning to Bogart, she made the immortal remark, you look like a goddamn rat pack. The nickname stuck and a legend was born. At its core were three extraordinary entertainers who, both individually and collectively, exuded an electrifying blend of charisma, attitude and style - Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. This collection showcases the individual talents of each singer in a programme of individual solo performances backed by the orchestras of Nelson Riddle, Sy Oliver and Paul Weston.
