Music Millennium

Summary

A personal tribute to the people, places, and things who have inspired, influenced, and shared invaluable life lessons with the Grammy and Emmy Award-winning legend over his amazing ninety years

At ninety, musician and singer Tony Bennett is as vibrant and productive as ever. In addition to his prodigious musical output, including albums, concerts, and personal appearances, this beloved and enduring artist has written his second book. In 2012's Life Is a Gift, Tony reflected on the lessons he has learned over the years. Now, in Just Getting Started, he pays homage to the remarkable people who inspired those lessons.

In his warm and inviting voice, Tony talks about who and what have enriched his own life, including Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cole Porter, Amy Winehouse, Fred Astaire, Lady Gaga, members of his family, significant places, and more. Just Getting Started chronicles the relationship Tony has enjoyed with each one of these legends, entertainers, humanitarians, and loved ones, and reveals how the lessons and values they imparted have invaluably shaped his life.

As enchanting and unforgettable as his music, Just Getting Started is a beautiful compilation of reflections every Bennett fan will treasure, and a perfect introduction for those just getting to know this remarkable star and humanitarian.

About the Author

The child of Italian immigrants, Tony Bennett grew up in Astoria, Queens, during the Great Depression. After serving as an infantryman in World War II, he studied singing and then signed with Columbia Records in 1950, releasing his first hit with the label in 1951. Over the course of his more than fifty-year career he has sold millions of albums worldwide and has achieved platinum and gold albums both in the U.S. and internationally, and won nineteen Grammy Awards. Tony's 90th birthday celebrations will kick off on his actual birthday, August 3rd, and continue well into 2017. A star-studded network television special, airing in December, will serve as the focal point of the festivities.
