On the twelfth and final day of a Tony Bennett Christmas, Wednesday, December 25, 2013, the song of the day is “A Child Is Born.”
About This Song
“A Child Is Born” was composed in 1969 by jazz trumpeter Thad Jones with lyrics by Alec Wilder. While not a traditional Christmas song, I have always felt that it’s the perfect jazz Christmas song.
About This Version
“A Child Is Born” is from the second album by Tony Bennett and Bill Evans: Together Again, released in 1977.
“A Child is Born,” as well as the album Together Again, is available from iTunes.
