Greco began playing piano at the age of four. His first professional work was playing with Benny Goodman’s band.

Most of Greco’s work has been in the jazz and pop genres. He has had hits such as “Oh Look At Her Ain’t She Pretty”, “The Lady is a Tramp”, and “Around the World”. He has recorded about 65 albums and 100 singles. He has had an active concert career playing in symphony halls, theatres, nightclubs, and Las Vegas showrooms (in the 1960s he made appearances with the Rat Pack).

    Buddy Greco transcends the so-called lounge genre, which is probably an unfair way to typify what he does. In his best performances you can hear true talent and pure joy. I don't like the version of Lady is a Tramp available here, but the one I have is THE definitive version of this standard, which in Buddy's hands is almost a feminist anthem in a way. He OWNS this song, like Sinatra owns Come Fly With Me and Goulet owns Impossible Dream.
