Background:  Swing Easy! was originally released in 1954 as an 8 song 10″ LP.  It was reissued the following year as a 12″ LP and that version combined the 8 songs from Swing Easy! with the 8 songs from the Songs for Young Lovers LP.

This LP is a 16 track Japanese reissue, pressed in about 1970, of the version that contains both albums. gave Swing Easy! a 4 1/2 star review:

As the title implies, the record concentrates on up-tempo swingers. Again, the songs were all standards — “Just One of Those Things,” “Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams,” “All of Me” — that benefitted from the new thematic setting, the new arrangements, and, of course, Sinatra’s increasingly playful and textured vocals. Sinatra plays around with the melodies without leaving them behind, delivering each line with precision. It ranks as one of his most jazzy performances, as well as one of his most fun and carefree records.
