This program pays tribute to the great Tony Bennett, who passed away at age 96 on July 21st, 2023. Bennett was without doubt one of the finest interpreters of the Great American Songbook, and he also had one of the longest careers in the business.

This program highlights two of his finest recording sessions: the pair of sessions he made in 1975 and 1976 with famed pianist Bill Evans.

We’ll also hear from a few other duo sessions Bennett had with other pianists, including his longtime accompanist Ralph Sharon.
