Playing the popular White House Sessions concert on the Washington Mall for President John F. Kennedy in 1962, these titans of popular jazz, Tony Bennett and Dave Brubeck, have a great time informing, joking and playing the lights out.
Two remarkable visionaries at the peak of the powers, Dave Brubeck and his quartet and Tony Bennett (both with his group and with Bennett with trio) give hot performances of some of their biggest hits: Brubeck's revved up "Take Five," and Tony Bennett's soulful "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."
Impexs amazingly lifelike SACD/Hybrid lets you experience this long-lost classic like you were there.
