There’s an old French saying, “the whole of a man’s mystery rests in his hat,” and if you translate it into American you get Sinatra smoking and singing “Memories of You,” “I Thought About You,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” and “You Brought Me a New Kind of Love to Me,” all from the same 1956 session, I love that voice and have since the summer I was eight and my friend Ann and I sang “Love and Marriage” on Talent Night at the bungalow colony when I’m down there’s nothing like you, birthday boy, singing “All of Me” to lift me up and when I’m in love I jump out of bed in the morning singing “It All Depends on You” and your voice comes out of my mouth.
