    At first he was down and almost out: divorced (and blamed), cut by MGM, his radio program, and Columbia Records, then severe vocal hemorhaging. In 1953 Sinatra got a good movie role, and Capital Records took a chance on an older voice. Collaborations with Nelson Riddle, Billy May, and Gordon Jenkins created the greatest output of skilled male singing - even as rock rolled onto the airwaves and vinyl discs. Focus will be on concept albums with swinging, finger snapping songs and sad songs about a guy who'd got it bad in the wee small hours...and that ain't good. A few video extras will add to the picture of the singer's artistry.
