Producer Al Schmitt mentions Martin's use of a Telefunken U47 in this Sound on Sound interview about the recording of Bob Dylan's Shadows in the Night.
“I used Capitol’s Neumann U47 on Bob’s vocals. It’s the very same microphone that was used on Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole. It’s a great–sounding microphone. Fortunately, because I work a lot at Capitol, I get to use it frequently, and I’ve had it on Paul McCartney and on Diana Krall and others."
Despite Schmitt's mention of Neumann, Sinatra's U47 is famous for bearing the Telefunken brand.
