About This Version
I woke up this morning thinking about Tony Makes It Happen! and all the wonderful recordings by Tony Bennett with the great arrangements by Marion Evans. Today’s song, “The Lady’s In Love With You,” is one my favorites due both Mr. Bennett and Mr. Evans. I have to jump up and move every time I hear this recording. I hope you like it as much as I do. It was recorded in 1967 and features John Bunch on piano as well a great band.
“The Lady’s In Love With You,” as well as Tony Makes It Happen!, is available from iTunes.
