Barbra Streisand – When In Rome (I Do as the Romans Do)

(click song title above to listen)

Stephen Holden of the New York Times once said of Carolyn Leigh: “Leigh was Cy Coleman‘s greatest collaborator and the only major American lyricist whose bon mots consistently match Cole Porter’s in capturing an attitude of jaded sophistication fraught with heartbreak. The more pain is exposed, the sharper the wit that covers it up.”

“When In Rome (I Do as the Romans Do)” , one of the more playful of the long string of hits written by the duo, was beautifully debuted by Barbra Streisand on her 1964 album, People. This was Streisand’s fourth solo studio album and her first to hit #1 on the Billboard album chart, spending five weeks in the top spot on it’s way to platinum sales. The impeccable vocal delivery and lush bossa nova inspired production by Cy’s lifelong pal, Michael Berniker earned Barbra a Grammy award for Best Vocal Performance.

We know how a fundador can lead to a few, wishing you all a festive (& safe) summer!

Peggy Lee – When In Rome (I Do As The Romans Do)

Peggy Lee’s voluminous recorded legacy at Capitol Records was only in mid-session when she hit in 1964 with two albums, I’m In Love Again & In The Name of Love. As with many of her albums of the 1960′s, these two featured many tunes written by Peggy’s good pal Cy Coleman and this week’s Top Tune is a fine example. Barbra Streisand will also enjoy a hit with it that same year.

A few years later, Tony Bennett on a split with Columbia Records and eager to balance the demands of commerciality, teamed up with the great Bill Evans (see: Miles Davis – Kind of Blue) on a new beautiful arrangement for Fantasy Records. Please enjoy this great little bio & live performance by Bill and Tony on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show from 1975 HERE.
