While the Music Plays On
Tony Bennett's first LP, a jazz session led by guitarist Chuck Wayne, is back in print for the first time since its initial 1955 release. Bennett, his voice still evolving here,had to cut plenty of hit singles for Columbia Records to have the freedom to record this low-key charmer. Miles Davis was a fan of the downbeat nightclub vignette "While The Music Plays On." Love that beatnik cover photo.
