About This Version
I can’t say I’m terribly familiar with this song, but I can say that listening to it made me want to jump on the first plane to New York and enjoy the Spring. Tony Bennett recorded Spring in Manhattan for his 1964 album, The Many Moods of Tony. It was arranged and conducted by Don Costa and featured the Will Bronson Singers.
Spring in Manhattan, as well as the album The Many Moods of Tony, is available from iTunes.
