He left his heart in San Francisco. Now he has died, at 91main
Ralph Sharon, the London-born jazz pianist who gave Tony Bennett his greatest hit, has died full of years in Boulder, Colorado. In 1961, Sharon found ‘I Left my Heart…’ in a pile of old music an brought it to his new partner.
Bennett wrote of him: ‘Hooking up with Ralph was one of the best career moves I ever made.’
Sharon retired as Bennett’s musical director in 2002.
