Anthony Dominick Benedetto born on August 3, 1926, in Astoria, Queens grew up listing to singers including Al Jolson, Louis Armstrong, Jack Teagarden, and Eddie Cantor.
He embarked on a career of his own as a pop singer during the early 1950s, scoring his first hit with "Because of You" for Columbia Records in 1951.
Tony Bennett went on to work with the "Count Basie Orchestra" as the first male pop vocalist to sing with the band, beginning in 1958 with the album "Basie Swings, Bennett Sings."
That's how we grow.
