[Video] Ageless Tony Bennett Turns 92 Today!

Tony Bennett is celebrating his 92nd birthday today. Happy Birthday Tony! To mark the occasion, Tony Bennett and Diana Krall have united for a classy, revamp of George and Ira Gershwin’s 1924 song “Fascinating Rhythm.” The track previews their upcoming collaborative LP of Gershwin reworks, Love Is Here to Stay, out September 14th.

It’ll be their first full album together, featuring Gershwin standards like “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me.”

Tony Bennett first recorded “Fascinating Rhythm” in 1949, when he was still performing under this original stage name, Joe Bari. As NPR notes, that song, the B-side of a 78-rpm on Leslie Records, marked his debut recording and was presumed lost for years until a collector discovered it. Check out the new recording below…
