About This Song
Django Reinhardt wrote the song “Nuages” in 1940; Tony Bennett wrote these lyrics to the song in 2004. Bennett’s son, Danny, had long encouraged his father to write a song. While performing in Hawaii, he dropped in to a small jazz club and heard the Django Reinhardt song “Nuages” and felt that he had found the right melody for the song he had in mind. The resulting song is a really beautiful love song for his Susan, now his wife.
