RPM/Columbia/Legacy Recordings Set To Release Bennett & Brubeck - The White House Sessions, Live 1962, An Historic One-Time Musical Summit Of Two American Jazz Masters

NEW YORK, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RPM/ Columbia Records/ Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, is proud to release -- for the first time ever -- the complete Tony Bennett and Dave Brubeck performance from the White House Seminar American Jazz Concert, held on August 28, 1962.  With the Washington Monument as the evening's backdrop--the show was moved from its original Rose Garden location to the larger Sylvan Theater grounds nearby to accommodate the crowd--the concert was an end-of-summer event thrown by the John F. Kennedy White House for college students who'd been working as interns in the nation's capital.

Bennett & Brubeck - The White House Sessions, Live 1962 will be available Tuesday, May 28.

One of the great lost treasures of American musical history, the Tony Bennett-Dave Brubeck White House Seminar performance came about when the artists--each already on the bill with his own ensemble--agreed to seize the moment with an impromptu set.  While the Bennett-Brubeck recording of "That Old Black Magic" had surfaced on the occasional compilation (Brubeck's 1971's out-of-print LP, Summit Sessions, and 2001's Vocal Encounters), the rest of the Bennett and Brubeck performances--an hour's worth of music--were a mythical lost object in the Sony Music Entertainment vaults until finally surfacing through a fortuitous discovery last December, just weeks after Brubeck's passing on December 5, 2012 (one day shy of his 92nd birthday).

1962 was a pivotal time in American cultural and musical history and for the artists on this recording.  Just seventeen days before the White House Seminar American Jazz Concert, Tony Bennett had entered the Billboard charts with his signature song, "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," and there is an ebullience in Tony's performances and a palpable excitement of the college-age audience in their recognition of Tony's on-fire success.   Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" had become emblematic of jazz itself and, in 1962, Brubeck's band was picked as the best combo in jazz by Down Beat magazine readers and DJs surveyed by Billboard.

With both Bennett and Brubeck at the top of their respective games, the masters play off and with each other to create a spontaneous collaborative music that stands with the best of each of their work.
