Happy Birthday Tony Bennett!!

Today is Mr. Tony Bennett's 86th birthday.

Can you believe that he is still with us!?! Not only that, but he is still recording and even performing!
He just started his newest European tour this week.

Can you believe that between 1952 and today he has recorded more than 63 albums!?! His recent DUETS II was a huge smash (although truth be told, I preferred the songs on his first version, DUETS).

There is nothing I can say about Tony Bennett that hasn't been said by somebody else and better. Suffice it to say that he is AMAZING! If you haven't heard him lately (or, God forbid, ever!?) go to your library and borrow the CD DUETS (from 2006). Or if you trust me, go to itunes and buy a few of the songs. You won't regret it.

Here are a few of my favorite Tony Bennett songs:
Anything Goes
Are You Havin' Any Fun
With Plenty of Money & You
The Lady Is A Tramp (w/Frank Sinatra)
Put On A Happy face (w/James Taylor)
Don't Get Around Much Any More (w/Michael Buble')
Steppin' Out With My Baby (w/Michael Buble')

...and I leave you with one of his newest, The Lady Is A Tramp, sung with Lady Gaga. She's good, but he is GREAT!!

May you have many many more!!
