SRJO Sinatra Concert on KPLU

For many, the golden age of popular song in America was in the middle of the last century when those songs were sung by Frank Sinatra.  This week Jim Wilke’s Jazz Northwest will revisit those songs on An Evening with Ol’ Blue Eyes – a concert by the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra with singers Danny Quintero and James Caddell.

Highlights from the concert will air Sunday, December 4 at 1 PM Pacific on Jazz Northwest on 88.5 KPLU, or online at

The songs include Come Fly with Me, The Second Time Around, The Song Is You, I Won’t Dance, I’ve Got You Under My Skin and many others.  Most of the arrangements come from two albums Frank Sinatra recorded with the Count Basie Orchestra in the mid 1960s.
