About This Version
Sixty-four years ago today, Tony Bennett was in the studio with arranger and conductor Marty Manning to record two songs: “Just Say I Love Her” and “Sing You Sinners.” It was his third recording session for Columbia Records, with whom he had just signed a contract. I absolutely love this version of “Sing You Sinners” and feel that it really shows the world the kind of singer Bennett was going to be.
