Frank Sinatra - Witchcraft

Frank Sinatra’s recording of Witchcraft (Coleman/Leigh) received 6 Grammy Award nominations at the first ever Grammy Awards in 1957 for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Vocal Performance (male), Best Arrangement (Nelson Riddle), and Best Album Cover.

Sinatra would re-record the song in 1963 for his Reprise collection, Sinatra’s Sinatra and again in 1993 as a duet with Anita Baker.

The tune has gone on to become a pop and jazz standard, recorded by the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, and Bill Evans just to name a few.
