Breaking slightly from his pattern of a swing album following the release of ballads set, Frank Sinatra
followed No One Cares
with Nice 'N' Easy
, a breezy collection of mid-tempo numbers arranged by Nelson Riddle
. Not only is it the lightest set that he recorded for Capitol, it is the one with the loosest theme. Sinatra
selected a collection of songs he had sang early in his career, having Riddle
rearrange the tunes with warm, cheery textures. Unlike his previous ballads albums, Nice 'N' Easy
doesn't have a touch of brooding sorrow -- it rolls along steadily, charming everyone in its path.
