iTunes Review

In the summer of 1962, innovative cool jazz composer Dave Brubeck and beloved vocalist Tony Bennett were invited to perform at the White House Seminar American Jazz Concert. Aside from the previously released Brubeck-Bennett collaboration “That Old Black Magic,” the results have been unavailable for public consumption until now. Brubeck leads his quartet, featuring his musical foil Paul Desmond on alto sax, through crowd-pleasers like “Take Five.” Bennett and his band then take the spotlight, offering renditions of “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” and other signature tunes. Yet the real highlight comes at the concert's close, as Brubeck and Bennett hit the stage together to perform four playful, off-the-cuff numbers.

worth it

This mini concert is not long, but Tony Bennett's version of "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" is the best I've heard, and much better than the single version. Terrific. Moving, too.

Timeless

This historic White House recording has surprisingly wonderful fidelity, an auditory celebration of the late Brubeck at his heights and the now legendary Bennett ascending. Both deliver performance greats. A must have for fans of both!

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 would probably...
