About This Song
“All My Tomorrows” was written in 1959 by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn for the Frank Capra film A Hole in the Head, which starred Frank Sinatra. Sinatra sang the song over the credits; he also released as a single with another Van Heusen / Cahn song, “High Hopes.” This song has also been recorded by Shirley Horn and Jack Jones, as well as Tony Bennett.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “All My Tomorrows” in 1965 for If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set. While many of the songs on this album use a full orchestra, arranged and conducted by Don Costa, today’s song features the Ralph Sharon Trio, with Hal Gaylord on bass and Billy Exiner on drums. It’s a beautiful arrangement, with a seeming simplicity that serves both the song and Tony Bennett’s voice perfectly.
“All My Tomorrows,” as well as If I Ruled The World: Songs for the Jet Set, is available from iTunes.
