From 1953-1962, Sinatra recorded more than 300 songs for Capitol Records, most included on landmark concept albums he pioneered. His tenure at the label set him apart from all other vocalists of the 20th century and quite possibly of all time, making it the finest body of recorded work in popular music. 

On September 23, the highly anticipated World Premiere of Sinatra The Musical,  based on the life and career of the legendary artist and cultural icon, will debut at Birmingham Rep, in Birmingham, UK, and run through October 28; purchase tickets here. The spectacular new musical features twenty actors and seventeen musicians performing over twenty-five of Sinatra’s most legendary songs. 

For two months beginning in mid-October, SiriusXM’s Siriusly Sinatra will air a Frank Sinatra Platinumradio special hosted by Tina Sinatra.
