On the tenth day of the Twelve Days of a Tony Bennett Christmas, Saturday, December 23, 2017, the song of the day is “Christmas Time Is Here.”
About This Song
“Christmas Time Is Here” was written in 1965 by Vince Guaraldi and Lee Mendelson for the beloved television holiday special A Charlie Brown Christmas, which is still played each Christmas. This song has also been recorded by artists including Diana Krall, Anita Baker, Mel Tormé and Mariah Carey.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Christmas Time Is Here” for his 2008 album A Swingin’ Christmas. It was arranged by Torrie Zito.
“Christmas Time Is Here,” as well as A Swingin’ Time, is available from iTunes.
I happy to share the animated video of a new duet of today’s song with Tony and Josh Groban.
