Today we wish the very incredible Tony Bennett a very happy 90th Birthday! Bennett is one of the greatest jazz singers and interpreters of American popular song of all time.
This week’s tune was written in 1964 by Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh and was recorded during sessions over a 4 day period for 1975′s brilliant Tony Bennett/Bill Evans album. A dream project of Tony’s, it combined his affection for jazz, songs of the Broadway masters and of the Great American Songbook with only the masterful accompaniment of legendary pianist Bill Evans.
“I never sing a song that’s badly written. I don’t like to cheat the audience,”, says Tony. “I always try to do the best job I can for them because they deserve it.”
Salute Mr. Bennett, no better man!
