Reception Edit

Allmusic gave Sing and Dance a four out of five star review. Stephen Thomas Erlewine quotes Mitch Miller, claiming that the album was when "the world discovered that Sinatra could swing." The album was described as being "useful in illustrating that even when Sinatra wasn't at the peak of his stardom, he could record some extraordinary music."[2]
