About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded this song for one of my favorite albums, When Lights Are Low, where he was accompanied by only the excellent Ralph Sharon Trio, with Hal Gaylord on bass and Billy Exiner on drums joining Sharon’s piano. This album was released in 1964.
“Oh! You Crazy Moon,” as well as the remastered When Lights Are Low album, is available from iTunes.
