Arranged and conducted by Gordon Jenkins

September of My Years is a perfectly arranged selection of songs recorded as Sinatra neared his 50th birthday (1965).

From the Gordon Jenkins-arranged introduction to the title track to the closing "September Song," the music (with Jenkins signature strings) provides the right wistful, reflective backdrop to a Sinatra whose voice has aged like wine.

"It was a Very Good Year" is probably the standout, and the kind of magic that even Sinatra could not have recorded when he was starting out in the late 1930s. Here it is evocative, heartfelt and very moving. "Man in the Looking Glass" is remarkable, as is "Once Upon a Time."

Essential Sinatra, some argue it's his best concept album on Reprise. The listener can feel that Sinatra is singing part of his autobiography here, and for those still moved by his passing it takes on an even greater significance.
