Lady SatinThis was her final studio album released in her lifetime and for fans it's a difficult listen because by 1958 her voice was gone leaving a croaking voice that had become almost unbearable to hear, but full of emotion. This album consisted of tracks she had never recorded previously and featured arrangements by bandleader Ray Ellis which helped to lighten the mood. The track we'll play is a song co-written by Frank Sinatra.
