"I like New York in June," sings Frank Sinatra. "How about you?" Obviously a trick question. Who, after all, is going to disagree with Sinatra? Especially since he puts New York in June in the same class as a Gershwin tune, potato chips, moonlight, good books, and holding hands in a movie show when lights are low. What's not to like? To that list, however, should be added this track, vastly superior to Tommy Dorsey's 1941 version featuring a skinny heartthrob from Hoboken. Sinatra at 26 was a star; at 40, he's a mature artist—still stellar, but now masterful.
