Tony Bennett signed with Columbia Records in 1950, topping the US charts the following year with 'Because Of You' and 'Cold, Cold Heart'. Other 50s hits included 'Just In Time' and 'Stranger In Paradise'. 1958's 'Firefly' was Bennett's last US Top 40 entry until 1962, when he made a major comeback with 'I Left My Heart In San Francisco'. Bennett's other 60's hits included 'I Wanna Be Around', 'The Good Life', and 'If I Ruled The World'. However, his future lay with concerts and albums, including I Wanna Be Around, and The Many Moods Of Tony. In the 70s, Bennett left Columbia and his return in the mid-80s produced The Art Of Excellence, which included a duet with Ray Charles. In 1993 and 1994 he received Grammys for Perfectly Frank and Steppin' Out. He was 'discovered' by younger audiences following his appearances on the David Letterman Show and MTV's Unplugged. The latter teamed him with k.d. lang and Elvis Costello. Bennett's star continued to shine with Here's To The Ladies, with impressive versions of 'God Bless The Child' and 'I Got Rhythm' and the excellent Tony Bennett On Holiday: A Tribute To Billie Holiday.
