Product Description:

Personnel includes: Tony Bennett (vocals); Marty Manning, Ralph Burns (conductor); The Ralph Sharon Trio.
Reissue producer: Didier C. Deutsch.
Recorded at CBS 30th Street Studios, New York between 1962 and 1963. Tracks 1-11 originally released as I WANNA BE AROUND..., Columbia Records (CS 8800) and tracks 12-18 originally released on THIS IS ALL I ASK, Columbia Records (CS 8856).
This is part of Columbia Records' Tony Bennett Master series.
After his 1962 signature hit "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," Tony Bennett released a string of superb albums, of which I WANNA BE AROUND was the first. The title tune was a smart followup hit to "San Francisco," with similar Ralph Sharon piano obbligato throughout but an altogether tougher feeling expressed. It's a loser's lament, but Bennett, flush with success, gives Johnny Mercer's bitter lyric a heady, exuberant spin.
The opening track "The Good Life" sets the tone for the rest--contemporary, mostly international songs reflecting freedom, openness, "authenticity." Michel Legrand's "Once Upon A Summertime" and Jobim's "Quiet Nights" are standouts in this category, the latter still the best version of "Corcovado" in English. Marty Manning's arrangements are particularly fresh. It should be mentioned that I WANNA BE AROUND is one of the Tony Bennett Master Series, remastered in excellent sound with additional bonus tracks.
