Frank Sinatra - Why Try To Change Me Now

“So let people wonder, let ‘em laugh, let ‘em cry”…Frank Sinatra’s second set of torch songs recorded with arranger Gordon Jenkins, No One Cares, was released on Capitol Records in 1959 in both stereo and mono versions. Jenkins who also worked with the Andrews Sisters, Johnny Cash, Louis Armstrong, Judy Garland, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald among others, captures Mr. Sinatra in a stunning & melancholy mood with Cy Coleman & Joseph McCarthy’s great ballad, “Why Try To Change Me Now”.

This timeless song has gone on to be recorded by the likes of Little Jimmy Scott, Count Basie & Sammy Davis Jr., Elvin Jones, Nancy Wilson, and Fiona Apple. Catch a special live performance from Fiona HERE.
