Following the runaway success of his 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
