About This Version
Today’s song is from Tony Bennett’s and Lady Gaga’s new album, Cheek To Cheek (the deluxe edition). I just got home, unpacked it from Amazon and have been listening all day. It’s a real joy and this song exemplifies that joy. For this song, they are accompanied by Tony Bennett’s Quartet of Mike Renzi (piano), Gray Sargent (guitar), Marshall Wood (bass) and Harold Jones (drums).
“Goody Goody,” as well as the deluxe version of Cheek To Cheek, is available from iTunes.
