About This Version
This version is from one my favorite Tony Bennett albums, If I Ruled The World: Tony Bennett Songs For The Jet Set, though this song wasn’t included on the original release, it was added to the rerelease for the Complete Collection. It was recorded in February, 1965 with the Ralph Sharon Trio: Ralph Sharon (p), Hal Gaylor (b) and Billy Exiner (d). Also featured on the album was Al Cohn on tenor saxophone. The producer was Ernie Altschuler.
