Sinatra's Abandoned Tune Finally Recorded By Calabria Foti
Nelson Riddle's arrangement of "Lush Life", intended for inclusion on Frank Sinatra's "Only The Lonely" album, regrettably left incomplete, has now been recorded for the first time by vocalist Calabria Foti.
Frank Sinatra attempted to record the song in 1958 at Capitol Records but gave up midway through a take, never to return to it again. The unfinished track has been such an object of fascination that it has been written about in virtually every Sinatra biography. Now, Nelson’s entire arrangement can be heard in this new recording done at Capitol Records by Calabria Foti.
