The Year of Tony Bennett is off on a great adventure! We are off to Monterey, California for a week to enjoy the sights and to celebrate your opinionated author’s birthday, but most of all, to attend the 56th Monterey Jazz Festival.
We made our first trip to Monterey Jazz Festival last year because Tony Bennett was performing there. We fell in love with the festival and are going back this year for the pure love of the music. There’s a great lineup this year: Diana Krall, Joe Lovano, Wayne Shorter, Gregory Porter, and the Orquestra Buena Vista Social Club. And much, much more. Tony Bennett connection: You’ll be hearing Joe Lovano on Tony Bennett’s next album, Cheek To Cheek, with Lady Gaga.
So, there won’t be any new songs of the day for a week, but there are plenty of old ones to take a look at. You can use the search box to search for a song by title or songwriter or by album. Or you can take a few minutes and take a look at our sister site, The Interactive Tony Bennett Discography. We’ve made a lot of progress, though there’s still plenty of work left.
See you in a week! We’ll be tanned, rested and ready for more songs.
