It Might as Well Be Swing

It Might as Well Be Swing is a 1964 (see 1964 in music) album by Frank Sinatra, accompanied by the Count Basie orchestra. It was Sinatra's first studio recording with Quincy Jones.

This was Sinatra and Basie's second collaboration after 1963's Sinatra-Basie.

Sinatra's cover version of "Hello Dolly" on the album features a new second verse improvised by Sinatra, which pays tribute to Louis Armstrong, who had topped the Billboard charts with his own version of the song earlier in 1964.

It Might as Well Be Swing is a reference to the title of the well known jazz standard It Might as Well Be Spring.
