Author: State Theatre New Jersey “Gratitude and joy, gruffness, and beauty balance each other perfectly in singing that has grown more rhythmically acute with each passing year.” —The New York Times Tony Bennett is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 10s—introducing a multitude of songs into the great American Songbook that have since become pop music classics. His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950’s, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches,” and a remake of Hank Williams’ “Cold, Cold Heart.” He has had 24 songs in the Top 40, including: “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?,” and his signature song, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” which garnered him the first two of his 19 Grammy Awards®.
