Of all the qualities Frank Sinatra had as a singer, what I admire most is his phrasing. He sings every word absolutely clearly, but in an unrestrained manner that makes every sound he utters sound as natural as breathing. The Johnny Richards/Carolyn Leigh standard "Young At Heart" is a prime example. Sinatra was the first to record it, in 1953, turning the song into a million-selling hit. No wonder, I say. Just listen to it yourself and you'll find this is true perfection.
