Steppin' Out with My Baby

"Steppin' Out with My Baby" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin and introduced in the 1948 musical film Easter Parade.[1] There it was sung by Fred Astaire as part of a dance number involving Astaire on stairs and three different dance partners.[1]

Since then the song has been recorded and performed by several artists, most notably Tony Bennett, in whose treatment it has become a jazz standard.[2] Introduced as the title song on his 1993 Astaire-themed album Steppin' Out, a stylish music video for it garnered some MTV airplay and was part of Bennett's commercial resurgence at the time.[3] One such performance was included on his high-selling 1994 MTV Unplugged: Tony Bennett album.[4]
