Song of the Day #702

Song of the Day: You Don't Know What Love Is, words and music by Dan Raye and Gene De Paul, has been recorded in a sensitive rendition by Tony Bennett and the incomparable jazz pianist, Bill Evans (who would have been 77 on August 16, 2006). Listen to an audio clip here. The two of them recorded a couple of fine albums together. I also love versions of this song by George Benson and my sister-in-law Joanne Barry (no audio clips at those links), as well as Dinah Washington and Cassandra Wilson (audio clips at those links).
