Tony Bennett Tony Bennett At Carnegie Hall on Hybrid SACD from Analogue Productions

Mastered by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound from the Original Analog 3-Track Tapes

No one else in popular American music has recorded for so long and at such a high level of excellence as Tony Bennett. With millions of records sold worldwide and platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett has received eighteen Grammy Awards including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950's, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches,” and a remake of Hank Williams “Cold, Cold Heart.” He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)” and his signature song, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” which garnered him two Grammy Awards. Tony Bennett is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and now in the first two decades of the 21st century. 

Following the runaway success of the aforementioned hit single “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” in early-1962, Tony Bennett was invited to perform at New York's famed Carnegie Hall for the third time. Pairing one of the greatest singers of all-time and one of the world's best music venues - as well as Bennett's favorite - yielded stunning results. Recorded on June 9, 1962, the revered Tony Bennett At Carnegie Hall album includes sublime studio quality renditions of “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” "Just in Time," "April in Paris," "Stranger In Paradise," "Blue Velvet," "Rags To Riches," and "Because Of You" - amidst production by Ernie Altschuler and first rate accompaniment from Ralph Sharon and His Orchestra, Al Cohn (tenor saxophone), Kenny Burrell (guitar) and Candido Camero (percussion).

"1962 was a landmark year for Tony Bennett. Despite the rise of rock and roll in the 1950's, his career had continued to develop, and the late 1950's saw a commercially and critically successful collaboration with Count Basie. This period culminated with the June 1962 Carnegie Hall appearance - his third at the Hall - that resulted in this celebrated live recording. 1962 was also the year he released what was to become his signature song - "I Left My Heart in San Francisco...he had the Carnegie Hall audience in the palm of his hand throughout this marathon concert..." - Carnegiehall.org
