The song of the day for Friday, March 15, 2013 is The Rules Of The Road.
About This Song
While this song is not from a musical, it was written by great Broadway and songwriting team of Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh in 1961.
About This Version
This version of Rules Of The Road is from Bennett’s wonderful 1962 Carnegie Hall concert. I am also a fan of the version from the 1964 Live At The Sahara show; while available on iTunes, this recording is not available on Spotify.
Mr. Bennett has recorded many of Cy Coleman’s songs. As Coleman was a jazz performer as well as a composer, I think his music speaks well to Bennett’s musical tastes.
Rules Of The Road, as well as the full 1962 Carnegie Hall Concert album, is available from iTunes.
