I'm no Sinatra fan. It's not that I don't like him, I just usually don't feel like listening to him for a whole album.

However, In the Wee Small Hours is an exception. It's one of those exceptions you have to love, one of those you can play while drinking whiskey and smoking cigars in front of your fireplace, one of those, people think you listen to all the time when you tell them you like jazz. Simply put: It has charming atmosphere, but it's not very demanding.

I can recommend this album to everyone, there are few things as fitting as this one when you want to listen to something in the wee small hours of the morning when the whole wild world is sound asleep.
