Here's Frank Sinatra at his jaunty, romantic best--personally guiding you on a high-flying musical tour that spans three continents!
"May's signature bold, brassy arrangements give these songs a playful, carefree, nearly sarcastic feel, but never is the approach less than affectionate. In fact, Come Fly With Me is filled with varying moods and textures, as it moves from boisterous swing numbers to romantic ballads, and hitting any number of emotions in between. There may be greater albums in Sinatra's catalog, but few are quite as fun as Come Fly With Me." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
