On the seventh day of a Tony Bennett Christmas, Tony sings “The Christmas Waltz.”
“The Christmas Waltz” was written in 1954 by Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn at the specific request of Frank Sinatra, who included it on the B-side with his recording of “White Christmas.” Like “White Christmas,” this song was written on a hot summer day. While the song has been widely recorded and is popular, it never charted until 2003, with a recording by Harry Connick Jr.
Tony Bennett recorded “The Christmas Waltz” for A Swingin’ Christmas, released in 2008.
“The Christmas Waltz,” as well as A Swingin’ Christmas is available from iTunes.
We’re also happy to feature this kind of sweet and funny video of Tony singing this song.
