Almost 500 concerti by Vivaldi survive. More than 300 are concerti for a solo instrument with string orchestra and continuo. Of these, approximately 230 are written for solo violin , 40 for bassoon , 25 for cello , 15 for oboe , and 10 for flute . There are also concerti for viola d’amore, recorder , mandolin , and other instruments. Vivaldi’s remaining concerti are either double concerti (including about 25 written for two violins), concerti grossi using three or more soloists, concerti ripieni (string concerti without a soloist), or chamber concerti for a group of instruments without orchestra.
Sinatra became increasingly frustrated with the status of the Harry James band, feeling that he was not achieving the major success and acclaim he was looking for. His pianist and close friend Hank Sanicola persuaded him to stay with the group,  but in November 1939 he left James to replace Jack Leonard [k] as the lead singer of the Tommy Dorsey band. Sinatra signed a contract with Dorsey for $125 a week at Palmer House in Chicago ,  and James agreed amicably to release Sinatra from his contract.  [l] On January 26, 1940, he made his first public appearance with the band at the Coronado Theatre in Rockford, Illinois ,  opening the show with " Stardust ".  Dorsey recalled: "You could almost feel the excitement coming up out of the crowds when the kid stood up to sing. Remember, he was no matinée idol . He was just a skinny kid with big ears. I used to stand there so amazed I'd almost forget to take my own solos".  Dorsey was a major influence on Sinatra and became a father figure . Sinatra copied Dorsey's mannerisms and traits, becoming a demanding perfectionist like him, even adopting his hobby of toy trains. He asked Dorsey to be godfather to his daughter Nancy in June 1940.  Sinatra later said that "The only two people I've ever been afraid of are my mother and Tommy Dorsey".  Though Kelley claims that Sinatra and drummer Buddy Rich were bitter rivals, [m] other authors state that they were friends and even roommates when the band was on the road, but professional jealousy surfaced as both men wanted to be considered the star of Dorsey's band. Later, Sinatra helped Rich form his own band with a $25,000 loan and provided financial help to Rich during times of the drummer's serious illness. 
Sinatra's Qwest singles were released as part of The Complete Reprise Studio Recordings (1995), and originally appeared on . Is My Lady (1984).
