Buddy Greco has been performing in showrooms, symphony halls, nightclubs and on television specials for 80 years and counting. The Philly-born piano player and singer started out in Benny Goodman‘s band and worked his way toward successful solo recording contracts with Epic, Kapp, and Reprise.
Following close friendships with Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe including many Las Vegas appearances with the Rat Pack, Greco opened his own club in Palm Springs before settling in the UK. Buddy fell in love with the London scene early on in his career and can be heard performing with the London Symphony Orchestra and in cabaret appearances at Cafe Royal to this day.

Originally written for the Dick Van Dyke Show, this Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh tune became a big hit for Blossom Dearie in 1958 and again later for Peggy Lee. Blossom’s trio on Once Upon A Summertime consists of Mundell Lowe on guitar and the great rhythm section of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums.
You might recognize the tune most recently as a mash-up with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s “Spread Your Love” in this ad for The Cosmopolitan Hotel – Las Vegas.
Here’s a live clip featuring Bing Crosy & Peggy Lee.
Happy 4th of July!
