Synopsis

Amazon.com
This two-CD set adds unreleased tracks to what was already a superb representation of Tony Bennett's art, the 1962 concert catching Bennett at an early peak in his career. He was already a major exponent of the classic American songbook, and here he's both summarizing his work and branching out into then-new directions. He's equally effective as a ballad singer, including seldom-heard gems like Kurt Weill's "Lost in the Stars," and as a rousing jazz stylist, swinging effortlessly on familiar tunes like "All the Things You Are" and "Chicago." The concert includes a rendition of "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," a song that had just been released at the time. --Stuart Broomer

CD Reviews

BENNETT at his BEST
F. Barton | Newport, WA USA | 04/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 2CD set gives us the complete concert, unabridged and wonderful, rather than the choppy edited lps. Even though it took over 30 years for this material to see the light of day, it was worth the wait. The original LPs were outstanding; this is HEAVEN! "Smile", "Without a Song" and MANY others, which are Bennett standards, are finally here for all to enjoy. They must have picked him up off the floor that night, as his energy is boundless, his musicianship tremendous, as is his personality. LIVE albums are always the true test of ANY artist, no matter what the genre. It's a joy to hear a sublime singer, in an complete concert, without overdubbs, studio "help", and with great remastered sound. This CD will be among your VERY favorites."
The last reviewer from London....

"....has no idea what he's talking about. This two-disc set showcases Tony Bennett at his best. He was, and still is, a fabulous singer. In many ways, he was more compelling in a concert setting than in the studio. On this night at Carnegie Hall in 1962, the acoustics must have been perfect. His voice, though always great, sounded extra special. I'm fortunate to have this as part of my eclectic collection."
One of the Best Ever

"To the last reviewer, I saw both Garland and Bennett in separate concerts in Boston not long after their respective Carnegie Hall shows. Judy gave the best performance I have ever seen, Tony was not far behind.

How wonderful to finally have the entire concert at last. You are reminded time and again how Tony picks the very best songs to sing. There are a lot of gems here, but my favorite 'new' song is the one from "I Can Get it for You Wholesale." With Tony singing you wonder why the song did not become a hugh hit. Tony is still around, bless him, but I had forgotten how rich and glorious his voice was 42 years ago. I would classify this concert as one of 10 best live recordings of all time, pop or rock. It just does not get much better than 2 hours of pure Bennett at his peak. The live concert brings out the best in him.
This is the one indispensable Tony Bennett CD."
