Welcome to One Man Academy's second Album of the Year nomination list!

The first ever OMA went to Frank Sinatra... will he repeat in year two??

Frank Sinatra, Van Cliburn, and Henry Mancini all have 100% nomination rates: 2 for 2! How long can they keep the streak going?

You'll have a week, or so, to listen to the nominees and make your own decisions, before the official reveal.


The 1960 nominees for Album of the Year were:
  • Belafonte at Carnegie Hall, Harry Belafonte
  • Come Dance with Me!, Frank Sinatra
  • More Music From Peter Gunn, Henry Mancini[1]
  • Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3, Van Cliburn
  • Victory at Sea, Vol. 1, Robert Russell Bennett


  1. I wasn't able to locate this album. There are a number of false alarms out there, but I believe this is the correct track listing and I couldn't find anything that matched. ↩︎
