Frank Sinatra With The Red Norvo Quintet: Live In Australia, 1959

With the Red Norvo Quintet: Live in Australia, 1959 is a live album by American singer Frank Sinatra, recorded in 1959 but released in 1997.

These tapes were recorded during two stops on Sinatra's brief Australian tour of 1959, during which he was backed by the quintet of jazz vibraphonist Red Norvo. It is considered one of the wildest performances he has ever recorded, as he exhibits great freedom in his lyric choice, often switching and twisting entire phrases. For example, just as Sinatra begins "I've Got You Under My Skin", a woman in the audience screams. He responds between lyrics with "Get your hand off that broad!"

    And now the end is near
    And so I face the final curtain,
    I’ll state my case of which I’m certain.
    I’ve lived a life that’s full, I traveled each and ev’ry highway,
    And more, much more than this. I did it my way.

    ‘But where can we draw water,’
    Said Pearse to Connolly,
    ‘When all the wells are parched away?
    O plain as plain can be
    There’s nothing but our own red blood
    Can make a right Rose Tree.’
