About This Song
This song was written by George and Ira Gershwin for the 1937 Fred Astaire – Ginger Rodgers movie Shall We Dance. Unlike most songs that Astaire introduced in his films, there was no dance number associated with “They Can’t Take That Away From Me.” It is one of the Gershwin’s finest love songs. George Gershwin died just two months after this film was released.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded this version of “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” in 1967 for the album For Once In My Life, with a fine arrangement by Torrie Zito. Burt Collins on the flugelhorn is the featured soloist.
