Tony Bennett recorded “Where Do You Start” for his 2004 album The Art of Romance; the lovely arrangement is by the composer Johnny Mandel.
I’ve had a secret theme of the month for January, which has been some my most favorite songs that Tony Bennett has recorded. Today is definitely one of those songs and from an album of his that I absolutely adore.
