Dear Jonathan:

I wonder if you can clear a Frank Sinatra mystery for me.

Back in the 1970's, I heard a beautiful jazzed up taped version of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade in a friends home and was told that Frank Sinatra was conducting it. I have not heard of it again.

Can you or anyone who reads this posting confirm if indeed Sinatra ever conducted and recorded that amazing arrangement of Scheherazade?

Please email me and thank you

Oh Happy Day! Wonderful sounds, marvelous musics - no buzz, drift, snaps, crackles, pops, or cursing. Thank you
