I sat down with @trishayearwood to talk about her just-released standards album inspired by @sinatra , “Let’s Be Frank.” You can read our conversation in @rollingstone at the link in my bio.
I’ve been dreaming of this album ever since I heard Trisha sing “Somewhere” from “West Side Story” at a charity show in 2006. That song isn’t on here, but you only need to listen to her performance of “If I Loved You” on “Let’s Be Frank” to know what I’m talking about. Trisha was born to sing these songs, and she surrounded herself with the best of the best to produce, arrange and record this album at Capitol Studios in L.A., where Sinatra laid his vocals down back in the day.
Seriously, get this album on vinyl or CD so you get the full audio experience. Al Schmitt’s engineering work is just as big a star as Trisha’s voice on this project. It’s the best-sounding album I’ve heard since @ogshelbylynne teamed up with Phil Ramone for “Just a Little Lovin’” back in 2008.
Oh, and I had Trisha do our selfie, because she’s one of the world’s best selfie takers.
