It's fascinating that both Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, late in their careers, have been motivated to record albums of songs associated with Frank Sinatra. While their voices have faded (and could never rival Sinatra's mastery even in their best days), both of these towering figures, drawn first by the riches of the Great American Songbook, have also lived lives filled with the same highs and lows that powered Sinatra's original versions. Given the similarities between Sinatra's time as a saloon singer and Nelson's honky tonk years, Willie and his ever-craggier voice are uniquely qualified for another stroll down Tin Pan Alley. His 1978 standards set Stardust was a revelation, flabbergasting country music fans and making Nelson's canny ambitions a star in the larger music world. In 2016 he tapped into the Gershwins for Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin followed My Way, his first collection of Sinatra-centric standards, two years later. Now at the tender age of 87, when the sentiments behind Sinatra's showstopper "My Way" apply to Nelson more than ever, he gives another bravura vocal performance—albeit with a few shaky moments. A classy, smart, tremendously appealing production from start to finish, That's Life surrounds Nelson's vocal takes with snappy, brass-heavy arrangements by the multi-talented, Nashville-based keyboardist Matt Rollings who clearly drew inspiration from Sinatra collaborators like Nelson Riddle and Billy May. "Luck Be a Lady," the only track where Nelson's voice sounds overmatched, gets a welcome Latin zest; a pair of hits—"I've Got You Under My Skin," and "You Make Me Feel So Young"—come off smoothly; a duet with Diana Krall of "I Won't Dance" is a nice change of pace. And on a relaxed reading of the title track which Nelson sings like he wrote it, Paul Franklin's steel guitar adds a welcome touch of country music flavor. Of the two weepers here—both of which were among Sinatra's greatest performances—"In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," works best with Mickey Raphael, longtime member of Nelson's crew, adding a distinct harmonica solo. Tracked at Capitol Studios in Hollywood where Sinatra made many of his greatest recordings, and mixed by the great Al Schmitt, the production of That's Life is focused on Nelson's voice being front and center in an expansive overall sound that is uncluttered despite a plethora of instruments. A triumph! © Robert Baird/Qobuz

For his 70th album, the unshakeable Willie Nelson (now 87 years of age) shows us his softer side. He may be the King of the outlaws, sitting comfortably atop his marijuana mountain, but the Texan has never hidden the super-sensitive and borderline romantic side of his personality. First Rose of Spring was produced by his old partner Buddy Cannon with whom he co-wrote two of its original songs. It also includes compositions by Chris Stapleton, Toby Keith and Pete Graves, as well as one by another 5-star outlaw, Billy Joe Shaver, with whom he covers We Are the Cow-Boys. This exquisite album primarily made up of love songs is drawn to a close with Yesterday When I Was Young (a cover of Charles Aznavour’s famous Hier Encore), which gives a sense of finality to the album as a whole, but not in a weak, languishing way. The production is understated, never flashy and accentuates the violins – when they’re there – with skill. There are also some beautiful acoustic guitar moments (played on a Martin N-20 Trigger) and vocals that are more fluid than usual. First Rose of Spring truly stands out from the many (perhaps too many) recent releases of Willie Nelson, who seems to be writing a never-ending will but doing so with as much class as ever. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

As a musician, an actor, a businessman and a Texan – if not American – icon, Willie Nelson once again proves with this 68th studio album that he isn’t done yet. Following his Last Man Standing, My Way is a beautiful tribute to Frank Sinatra. Co-produced by Buddy Cannon and Matt Rollings, the album mostly covers Ol' Blue Eyes’ career in the sixties. The tender and tremulous voice of eighty-something Willie, graciously coated in orchestra arrangements, is wonderfully enchanting on Fly Me to the Moon, Summer Wind and Cole Porter’s Night and Day. My Way not only pushes the Red Head Stranger away from his beloved country music, but it is also a flashback on memories. Willie Nelson highlights how his encounter with Sinatra played a part in his interpretations. Sharing the swing and purity of phrasing in 2005 for their duo on My Way, or facetiously joking on an announcement about NASA researches, the two giants have always maintained a strong bond, despite their differences. Which goes to show braids and bow ties can go well together! © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

At the tender age of 86, Willie Nelson is still living life pedal to the fullest, releasing new albums practically every year. On Ride Me Back Home, a most melancholy 69th album according to experts, the father of hippie-country music has come out with eleven new songs, mostly originals, co-written with his old accomplice Buddy Cannon, blending together his usual sense of humour with nostalgic snapshots – and sometimes, realistic snapshots as well when it comes to his age and the flow of time (Come On Time). At the middle point of the album, Willie slipped in a few covers - My Favorite Picture of You, by Guy Clark, the absolute smash it Just The Way You Are by Bily Joel, and It’s Hard to Be Humble by Mac Davis – revisited in good company, with his sons Lukas and Micah Nelson. An enthralling, dusky country record. © Max Dembo/Qobuz
