Luck Be A Lady

Frank Sinatra performing live in Vegas with the Count Basie Orchestra, arranged and conducted by Quincy Jones who produced all of Michael Jackson's records.  The song "about a pair of dice" is from Guys and Dolls.  In the 1955 film version, Sinatra played Nathan Detroit, a supporting role.  He wanted the lead role of Sky Masterson but it went to Marlon Brando who got to sing Luck Be A Lady in the movie.  In his stage act Frank gets to show how the song should be sung.  This is wonderful stuff, even when Sinatra muffs the lyrics.
