On 12 December, we will celebrate what would have been Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday. As his biography in Grove Music puts it, “In the course of his long career Sinatra’s name became virtually a byword for the American popular singer, and his singing represents a consummation of this longstanding tradition not likely to be equaled.”
And so, we wish you happy birthday, Frank.
