[all or nothing at all]

What will astonish you is - there’s no other phrase - the purity of Sinatra’s artistry. Nothing is thrown in for effect; there are no second-rate songs; he revives what was then a dated repertoire of classic material and brings it to life. It’s essential to hear what all that Gershwin and Porter and even Rodgers & Hart stuff sounds like in the original Broadway recordings to grasp what Sinatra did to them. Sinatra did not merely interpret the American songbook. In many respects he invented it.
