It’s no secret to regular readers of The Year of Tony Bennett that I am a big fan of arranger Marion Evans. Evans has been arranging for Tony Bennett for many years and, at the age of 88, is still going strong. He did much of the work on Cheek To Cheek and is already thinking about his next project for the just-announced Cole Porter album by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.
Mr. Evans currently resides in Pennsylvania. His local paper just did a wonderful feature article, which I wanted to share.
