Frank Sinatra always saluted his audience with a toast: "May You Live To Be A Hundred And The Last Voice You Hear Be Mine." Envisioned as a child's first musical library to be shared with the generations before, Tina Sinatra has curated a special compilation of Sinatra recordings for children and parents alike. On May 12, Universal Music Group will release Frank Sinatra: Baby Blue Eyes… May The First Voice You Hear Be Mine.
Frank Sinatra's daughter Tina has curated a collection of some of his most fondly-loved recordings for a special compilation for children and parents alike. The title of the album is a play on Sinatra's familiar salute to his audience at the end of his performances, "May you live to be a hundred and the last voice you hear be mine."
Dad is perhaps best remembered as a saloon singer. He often referred to himself as such, says Tina Sinatra. "But, first, he was a Father and that emotional connection to the child in all us is ever-present in this collection of songs that I have chosen as a concert to each new generation." After combing the songs from Sinatra's Reprise, Capitol and Sony catalogs, Tina carefully chose 20 songs for 'Baby Blue Eyes' that express a father's love, compassion and dreams for children around the world.
