A cornerstone of the Great American Songbook, beloved crooner Tony Bennett is a living legend. In honor of his 90th birthday, Bennett released Tony Bennett Celebrates 90 which features contemporary artists covering such Bennett hits as “The Lady Is a Tramp” and “The Good Life,” plus Bennett himself revisiting “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” and “The Best Is Yet to Come,” among many more. Fans marvel at the resilience of his trademark vocals which New York Magazine raves, “is still a technical marvel. . . and no one else on Earth can make a lyric written eight decades ago sound as natural as a conversation at a coffee shop.”
- With millions of records sold worldwide and platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett has received 17 Grammy Awards
- Bennett is one of a handful of artists to have new albums charting in every decade since the 1950s.
- Bennett, born Anthony Dominick Benedetto, was given his stage name by Bob Hope.
