What Sinatra brought to countless songs that hadn’t been brought before was an acting genius expressed musically. He’d study the lyric even before he’d look at the sheet music, burrow into the letter and spirit of the words. He had a bias for the lyric, stretching or snapping (but always clearly enunciating) the words to convey their fuller impact and intent. No one ever served great lyricists like Porter, Mercer, Larry Hart or Yip Harburg better, or great composers like Arlen or Richard Rodgers. No singer ever made you feel a thought more deeply than Sinatra.
