TONY BENNETT Full Historical

Collection Now On Itunes

Tony Bennett’s career has enjoyed three distinct phases, each of them very successful. In the early ’50s, he scored a series of major hits that made him one of the most popular recording artists of the time. In the early ’60s, he mounted a comeback as more of an adult-album seller. And from the mid-’80s on, he achieved renewed popularity with generations of listeners who hadn’t been born when he first appeared. This, however, defines Bennett more in terms of marketing than music. He himself probably would say that, in each phase of his career, he has remained largely constant to his goals of singing the best available songs the best way he knows how. Popular taste may have caused his level of recognition to increase or decrease, but he continued to sing popular standards in a warm, husky tenor, varying his timing and phrasing with a jazz fan’s sense of spontaneity to bring out the melodies and lyrics of the songs effectively. By the start of the 21st century, Bennett seemed like the last of a breed, but he remained as popular as ever. MORE

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – One of San Francisco’s official anthems was recorded 50 years ago this week and the person who brought the song to life is returning for a special Valentine’s Day benefit concert.

It was in December of 1961 when Tony Bennett first publicly sang “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” at the Venetian Room at the Fairmont Hotel.

A few weeks later, he went into the studio and recorded it. The song was not expected to be a hit as it was the B side of the single.

San Francisco Anthem Celebrates 50 Year Anniversary


In the months that followed, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” won Grammys for Record of the Year as well as Bennett winning for Best Male Vocal Performance.

The song has been an anthem for the city and is played after every San Francisco Giants home victory.

50 years later, Bennett will be performing the song as part of a sold-out concert at the Venetian Room to raise money for heart research at UCSF.

City leaders are trying to get the now 85-year-old singer to add a second show at City Hall that afternoon, but that has not been confirmed by Bennett’s agent.

Singer TONY MARTIN Still Amazes at 96

begin_the_beguine_tony_martin It’s sure good to see someone like Tony Martin still  singing – and singing well into his late 90s.  After all, probably the closest in age still on the circuit is Tony Bennett, and he’s a baby still in his mid-80s. Martin was raised right in my hometown of Oakland, and attended St Mary’s  College despite being Jewish. After  taking on a non-ethnic -sounding name, Tony Martin, Hollywood beckoned him. Martin became one of the top singers and actors of his day.  During the night we saw him at the Razz Room in San Francisco last year, Martin dropped many of those names of people he worked with  during the 40s and 50s and beyond, like Sinatra and Crosby, though his long-time conductor had to frequently help with the actual names.  But that’s ok, Martin sang well – and sang his familiar songs like ‘Begin the Beguine and ‘There’s No Tomorrow (same tune as Elvis Presley’s ‘It’s Now or Never,’ but recorded long before Presley, as he noted.  After Martin’s long-time movie-star wife Cyd Charisse (above right, with Martin in younger days) passed a few years ago, Martin called up his agent and said he needed to get busy and renewed his career, to the fortune of old and new fans, like us. If you want to hear the last of a breed of  powerful balladeers from the big band era, try to see Martin if you can, or at least listen to his music , like this one:
