About This Version
This medley was on Tony Bennett’s first album on his own Improv label, Life Is Beautiful, released in 1972. Torrie Zito arranged the medley for the orchestra and conducted as well. In his autobiography, The Good Life, points to this medley as a prime example of a project that he could never have gotten done at a major label.
