Sinatra and Swingin' Brass is a collection of brash, bold up-tempo numbers that followed the all-ballads effort Sinatra and Strings. Working with Neal Hefti, Sinatra turned in a robust, energetic performance. For Sinatra and Swingin' Brass, the singer re-recorded a number of songs he had previously recorded for Capitol: "They Can't Take That Away from Me" and "I Get a Kick Out of You" had been recorded eight years earlier for Songs For Young Lovers, "You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me" had been recorded six years prior for Songs for Swingin' Lovers, and "At Long Last Love" had been recorded five years earlier for A Swingin' Affair!.
Released in 1962 on Reprise, Sinatra and Swingin' Brass was the first time Sinatra worked with arranger and composer, Neal Hefti.
"The record captures the spirit of the Rat Pack era nearly as well as Ring-a-Ding Ding!." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
