About This Song
What can be said about “I Left My Heart In San Francisco”? It’s a wonderful song that touches all who listen deep inside. It’s one of my favorites.
The song was written by George Cory and Douglass Cross; the songwriters were from San Francisco. They had moved to New York and, feeling a little homesick, wrote this song. To learn more about the song, see I Left My Heart In San Francisco at our sister site, The Interactive Tony Bennett Discography.

Today’s version is from the recently released Bennett / Brubeck: The White House Sessions, Live 1962. Bennett is backed by the Ralph Sharon Trio, with Sharon on piano, Billy Exiner on drums and Hal Gaylord on bass. It’s a really beautiful performance of this song.
