Doris Day's Sentimental Journey is studio album by American singer Doris Day, released by Columbia Records on July 12, 1965 as a monophonic LP (catalog number CL-2360) and a stereophonic album (catalog number CS-9160).

The album gets its title from Doris Day's first big hit, "Sentimental Journey," which she performed as a part of the band Les Brown and His Band of Renown in 1945,[2] and consists mostly of pop standards, principally composed in the 1940s, approximately contemporaneously with that song.

Liner notes on the album were written by George T. Simon who was the author of "The Feeling of Jazz". The album's tracks are backed with the lush arrangements from the Mort Garson Orchestra. Mort Garson arranged and conducted. All of the album tracks are medium to slow tempo. The album was produced by Allen Stanton.

The album was re-issued in 2001, combined with Latin for Lovers, as a CD.

'A Sentimental Journey' is also the title of a stage musical tribute to Doris Day by Adam Rollston. In 2011 the piece toured to Scotland, England and Los Angeles.[3]
