Where Are You? (Later referred to as The Night We Called It a Day), released in 1957, is the sixteenth studio album by Frank Sinatra.

The first time Sinatra recorded in stereo, Sinatra recorded these tracks under Gordon Jenkins. Where Are You? was the pair's first album together, and began their long partnership until Sinatra's final Reprise album, 1981's She Shot Me Down.

Reception Edit

Allmusic rated Where Are You? at five out of five stars, praising Sinatra's lush vocal sound blended with Gordon Jenkins's sumptuous strings. In comparison to In the Wee Small Hours, Allmusic' Stephen Thomas Erlewine says "It doesn't have the stark despair of In the Wee Small Hours, but its luxurious sadness makes Where Are You? a majestic experience of its own."[1]

Rolling Stone also rated the album a perfect score of five out of five stars.[2]

Where Are You? Peaked at #3 on the Billboard 200 charts of 1957.[3]
