Summary
At ninety, musician and artist 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 singer has written his second book. While in his 2012 work Life Is a Gift, Tony reflected on the lessons he has learned over the years, in Just Getting Started he pays homage to the remarkable people who inspired those lessons. In his warm, engaging tone, Tony talks about Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cole Porter, Amy Winehouse, Fred Astaire, Lady Gaga, members of his family, significant places, and other wonders that have enriched his own life. Recounting his relationships with these entertainers, humanitarians, and loved ones, Tony reveals how he has been shaped by the principles each of them imparted to him. 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 extraordinary star and generous spirit. The child of Italian immigrants, Bennett grew up in Astoria, Queens, during the Great Depression. After serving as an infantryman in World War II, he studied singing and signed with Columbia Records in 1950, releasing his first hit with the label in 1951. Over the course of his career, which has spanned more than sixty years, he has sold millions of albums that have achieved gold and platinum status both in the United States and Worldwide, an( has won nineteen Grammy Awards. On August 3, 2016, Tony turned ninety.--Dust jacket
