Sinatra, Chuck and Jazz Journal

I picked up this month's Jazz Journal in Fenwick's. It has a lovely interview with veteran bassist Chuck Berghofer.
Chuck, now 73, has played with them all and he had this illuminating comment to make on Sinatra.
"I told Sinatra that I'd played with Zoot Sims and Stan Getz, but that he had the greatest time feeling in the world."
Sinatra's reply was: "I just get a great rhythm section and stay out of the way."
Perhaps Frank should have said, "... and stay out of 'My Way'!"
