Frank Sinatra's music might evoke the image of a smoky bar, desperate characters, heartbreak and lonesome old towns, but a new album is asking us to look at his music differently.

Baby Blue Eyes… May The First Voice You Hear Be Mine is a compilation of Sinatra's songs, specifically chosen for parents and children by someone who knows what fatherhood meant to the singer — his daughter, Tina Sinatra.

She tells Tom Power what it was like having Frank Sinatra for a father, and shares why he had a fondness for Toronto.
