Released inwhen Tony Bennett was only 30 years old, Cloud 7 was the record he fought and earned the right to make. He'd already had a string of hits for the label and was regarded as a major talent. In alone he charted seven times. Bennett was looking to the then new long-playing rpm format LP to bring a record to the public that showcased his voice in a more intimate, mood-setting environment. The cover says it all: it features a slightly out of focus black-and-white photograph of a woman, eyes closed, head thrown back, snapping her fingers with the I Fall In Love Too Easily - Tony Bennett Featuring Chuck Wayne - Cloud 7 " Cloud 7 " cursively written in hot pink to frame her face.
Produced by Mitch MillerBennett surrounded himself with a smallish jazz group and recorded ten standards. The mood is nocturnal, elegant, amorous, hip. A spare, ghostly guitar ushers in Bennett 's hum of the intro before the band enters slowly and when that slippery, smoky tenor enters in full, the entire night opens into oblivion. When he ups it a bit for the swinging "My Baby Just Cares for Me," with its muted yet finger-popping guitar swing, the seduction is complete. The music found here is more akin to that of Sinatra 's In the Wee Small Hours than it is to lounge mood music -- though that may have been the desired intent of the marketing department at Columbia at the time.
