About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded this song in 1964 for the album Who Can I Turn To. The album was arranged and conducted by George Siravo and was produced by Ernie Altschuler. In addition to the orchestra (listed on the session topic in The Interactive Tony Bennett Discography), the album features the Ralph Sharon Trio, with Hal Gaylord on bass and Billy Exiner on drums.
I was reminded today by a friend of this blog what a great recording this is and so easily decided to use it as the song of the day. But in doing so, I realize that tonight there is a bit of a lull in my life. For nearly two years, I have been working on the Tony Bennett discography that I launched last night. My habit has been to do the song of the day after dinner for the following day and then spend anywhere from one to three hours working on the discography. But now this phase is completed and released and I am definitely taking a bit of break before the next phase. I have no doubt I’ll find something to do … I have a stack of books nearly a foot high on my bedside table that I have been meaning to read. But for tonight, there’s a bit of a lull in my life.
“There’s A Lull In My Life,” as well as Who Can I Turn To, is available from iTunes.
