Sinatra and Strings is a 1962 album by Frank Sinatra.[2] The set of standard ballads is arguably one of the most critically acclaimed works of Sinatra's entire Reprise period.

It was Sinatra's first album with arranger Don Costa. Sinatra and Strings marked Sinatra's third recording of "Night and Day," his second recording of "Stardust" (although, on this occasion, Sinatra sang only the introductory verse), as well as his second recording of "All or Nothing At All" (Sinatra recorded his third version, the more commonly known swinging rendition, for Strangers in the Night in 1966, and a 1977 disco version that remained unreleased until 1998).
