About this album

September of My Years is a 1965 studio album by Frank Sinatra, arranged by Gordon Jenkins. It won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, beating out fellow nominees The Beatles (Help!), Barbra Streisand (My Name Is Barbra), Eddy Arnold (My World) and the soundtrack to The Sound of Music.

Sinatra was to turn 50 years old in December 1965, and the release of this album along with A Man And His Music and Strangers In The Night marked a surge of popularity in his music. Both September Of My Years and A Man And His Music won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

Sinatra’s performance of “It Was A Very Good Year” won the Grammy Award for Best Vocal Performance-Male at the Grammy Awards of 1966. Arranger Gordon Jenkins was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) for the same song. This was the first album Sinatra and Jenkins had recorded together since 1962′s All Alone. Jenkins and Sinatra would next work together on the 1980 album Trilogy: Past, Present, Future.

CBS television cameras were rolling the night Sinatra recorded “It Was A Very Good Year.” The edited result was included in a Walter Cronkite CBS News special about the singer’s 50th birthday, broadcast on November 16, 1965.

Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
September of My Years is one of Frank Sinatra’s triumphs of the ’60s, an album that consolidated his strengths while moving him into new territory, primarily in terms of tone.
