Frank Sinatra, "Fly Me To The Moon", Hear Music/Rhino Special Products, #6211168487 (2005).[CD Compilation]

Contains Contains "How Insensitive" (written by Jobim) and "I Concentrate On You", with Jobim on guitar and co-vocals on both tracks. Tracks are from the original album Francis Albert Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

From the booklet liner notes by David R. Legry:
5. How Insensitive

"Antonio Carlos Jobim single-handedly created bossa nova, influenced the entire American jazz world in the '60s, and also made more perfect pop in the style of MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira). Recorded at Studio One in 1967, this Jobim original, co-written by Norman Gimbel and Vinicius DeMoraes, features the sweetest melding of voices. It's the perfect meeting of masters as Sinatra smoothly navigates the tempos before Jobim joins with the same tenderness displayed by Frank.

12. I Concentrate On You

"Antonio Carlos Jobim's contribution as a composer to the world of music is unparalleled and can be likened to the musical impact that George Gershwin and Duke Ellington had. The two legends recorded together in 1967 for a full-length album and the results were magnificent. "I Concentrate On You" is a Cole Porter tune given the bossa flavor, with arranging and conducting duties undertaken by Claus Ogerman. Jobim adds his polished vocal support to Sinatra's precision, commandeering the tune in true bossa fashion. This was actually Sinatra's third recording of the song, and by far the best."
