The Songs of Tony Bennett at the Axelrod Performing Arts Center
The Axelrod Performing Arts Center is featuring “The Best is Yet to Come,” a tribute to the Tony Bennett songbook. The April show will feature vocalist and saxophonist Danny Bacher. Bacher will perform with an all-star jazz band.
“Bennett is one of the greatest living American singers. He’s proven unstoppable in his tenth decade,” said Axelrod Artistic Director Andrew DePrisco. “It seems that Tony Bennett has closed the generational divide. He’s become America’s favorite crooner, and music lovers of all ages adore him.”
“The Best Is Yet to Come: The Songs of Tony Bennett” features songs from the Great American Songbook including Jerome Kern’s “The Way You Look Tonight;” Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes;” Rodgers and Hart’s “The Lady Is a Tramp,” plus Tony Bennett gems like “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” “I Wanna Be Around,” “Rags to Riches,” “For Once In My Life,” and the title song “The Best Is Yet To Come.”
“The title of the concert seems particularly apt when you consider that Tony Bennett is going full tilt and singing as flawlessly as ever,” says DePrisco.
“The Best Is Yet to Come” will be presented on Sunday, April 14th at 3 p.m. at the Axelrod Performing Arts Center. 100 Grant Ave, Deal Park section of Ocean Township. Tickets range from $39-46. For tickets, visit www.axelrodartscenter.com.
