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.
