The Lady Vanishes...


Tony Bennett appeared with Duke Ellington and his Orchestra at Dane County Exposition Center on 25 April, 1968, as detailed in all the major Ellington discographies. No discography, however, lists these two songs - Who Can I Turn To? and The Lady's In Love With You. They feature on the reel-to-reel tape I acquired recently. 

The rest of the sets - a first half from Ellington and a second half from Bennett - are as featured in the discographies. This may be a different engagement to the tape recording that's listed in the discographies but I have no other tape with which to compare it. Alternatively and for some reason unknown, these two tunes have been omitted from the discographies. In any case, here is the performance. 

The Lady's In Love With You features a characteristically rambunctious solo from Paul Gonsalves...
