Tony Bennett sang while waiting on tables as a teenager before he enlisted in the Army during World War II. Whilst in Europe he performed with military bands and on his return to the USA he had vocal lessons at an american theatre. The first time Bennett sang in a nightclub was in 1946 when he sat in with trombonist Tyree Glenn at the Shangri-La in Astoria. Bennett’s big break came in 1949 when comedian Bob Hope noticed him working with Pearl Bailey in Greenwich Village in New York City and that was the start of a career which was to span over 6 decades.
In 2011, the year of his 85th birthday Tony Bennett released Duets II which features Tony performing with celebrated artists including the late Amy Winehouse (her last recording was their duet of “Body and Soul”), Michael Bublé, Aretha Franklin, Josh Groban, Lady Gaga, John Mayer, and many others. Duets II debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Album charts in the USA, making Tony the only artist at the age of 85 to achieve this in the history of recorded music.
