Conclusive Analysis

From the Paper:

"He represented the ultimate male romantic vocalist to many people. As a relaxed, yet swinging stylist, he was magnificent in his prime, and this quality slipped more dramatically than anything else in his arsenal. Though not a good scatter nor great vocal improviser, Sinatra helped expand Crosby's breakthroughs with microphone singing, achieving a wide range of dynamics and displaying a delivery and crystal-clear enunciation that projected any and every possible nuance or emotional shade in a lyric. (Lindley 1998)
"Sinatra's turning point in life came when he had his first career break through that launched him into the limelight where crazed teenage fans spent days just to catch a glimpse of their idol. Sinatra went solo, appearing as an "extra added attraction" to the Benny Goodman band at New York's Paramount Theatre. The resulting pandemonium, with legions of bobby-soxers filling the street outside the theater, swooning as if on cue, was a first glimpse of the Sinatra sensation, setting the stage for the stars to come - Elvis, the Beatles."
