My December 2015 copy of DownBeat Magazine arrived this weekend and guess who was on the cover!
Not only did Tony Bennett win the DownBeat readers award for Best Male Vocalist, but also was overwhelmingly named to the DownBeat Hall of Fame.
This issue, which is on the magazine stands now, has a very fine article about Tony Bennett by Michael Bourne. This issue also contains a side article about The Silver Lining, as well as a great five-star review of that album.
The digital edition of DownBeat can be read online here.
