Tony Bennett

May 23, 2013 07:30 PM

F. Scott Fitzgerald famously quipped that there are no second acts in American life, but he didn’t count on Tony Bennett. In a twist worthy of one of the Jazz Age writer’s masterly short stories, it’s the music from Fitzgerald’s own era that has sustained and fueled Bennett’s resurgence as a major force in American music. The consummate interpreter of standards, Bennett built his career on the bedrock of the American Songbook. Time has lent his voice a husky, burnished quality that adds a tinge of rue to his deep-seated optimism; an ebullient sense of swing that has earned him a staggering 17 Grammy Awards and the supreme honor of being named an NEA Jazz Master in 2006.
