The song of the day for Wednesday, August 24, 2016 is “We’ll Be Together Again.”
About This Song
“We’ll Be Together Again” was written by Carl T. Fischer in 1945, who was Frankie Laine’s pianist and musical director. Fischer asked Laine to write the lyrics, which he, quite nicely. In addition to this recording by Tony Bennett and Bill Evans, this song has been recorded by Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and, of course, Frankie Laine.
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Bill Evans recorded “We’ll Be Together Again” in 1975 for their first of two album The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album. Both of their albums are, in my opinion, sheer perfection and this song is no different.
“We’ll Be Together Again,” as well as The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album, is available from iTunes.
