The song of the day for Monday, June 17, 2013 is “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”
About This Song
As today is the one year anniversary of The Year of Tony Bennett, I have no guilt about picking my favorite Tony Bennett song for today. Written by two homesick San Franciscans, George Cory and Douglass Cross, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” is beloved by people all over the world.
About This Version
Today’s version is the live version from the recently released Bennett/Brubeck The House Sessions Live 1962. Tony Bennett and the Ralph Sharon Trio sounded wonderful. It’s great to hear the energy and positive feelings from the stage in this wonderful concert.
“I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” as well as the Bennett/Brubeck The White House Sessions Live 1962 album, is available from iTunes, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
