Frank Sinatra’s distinctive music has shaped the culture of the Great American Songbook and set the bar irrefutably high for artists of future generations. Through the decades, his smooth and sultry crooning and unmistakable style have greatly contributed to the soundtrack of our lives. Sinatra’s 59 studio albums and 297 singles generated many of the staples in American popular song including “That’s Life,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “I’ve Got The World On A String,” “Come Fly With Me,” “Strangers In The Night,” “My Way,” “New York, New York,” “It Was A Very Good Year,” “Chicago,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.” He is widely recognized as one of the most successful artists of all time, selling over 150 million records in his lifetime, and another 26.9 million posthumously. Sinatra has earned 10 personal Grammy awards for his music, with a total of 20 for his albums. Additionally, Sinatra starred in over 50 films during his career, including From Here To Eternity, The House I Live In, and Ocean’s 11, the latter of which Sinatra appeared with the four other members of the iconic “Rat Pack” that dominated popular culture in the 1960’s—Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop. Sinatra won three Academy Awards and two Golden Globes for his films, among numerous other accolades.
