Jack Jones Paints A Tribute To Tony Bennett
"Jack Jones Paints A Tribute To Tony Bennett" (Honest OME 1021) was nominated for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance
On his latest release for Honest Entertainment, Jack Jones Paints A Tribute To Tony Bennett, Jones pays homage to a friend and an American icon. He counts Bennett among those vocalists who most influenced his style (a small but elite group that includes Mel Torme, Sammy Davis Jr., Billy Eckstine, and Frank Sinatra). Professional relationship aside, Jones and Bennett have been friends since their meeting at Chicago's Palmer House Hotel in the late 60's when Jones attended the last show of Bennett's engagement at the Empire Room, before opening in the same room the following night.
Of his tribute album, which features some of Bennett's signature songs, Jones says, This album is my way or saying thanks to a dear friend, " In selecting songs for this album, he chose three of his personal Bennett favorites, "Skylark", "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "You Must Believe In Spring".

Love Makes the Changes: The Lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman
This is for digital only and the physical cd is available on jackjonesmusicstore.com.
With Mike Renzi on piano, Chris Colangelo on bass, and Kendall Kay on drums
Recorded in New York at Nola Studios.
For years, my dear friends Alan and Marilyn Bergman have had the ideal loving and pure relationship, truely sharing almost every ounce of life.
I call them: "THE MASTERS AND JOHNSON OF ROMANCE."
So I wondered, "How could they possibly perceive what it feels like when the music doesn't keep playing?"
Well, on this CD We pay tribute to the most perceptive and creative couple I know.
They have inspired me to put many of their wonderful creations into one of my weak story lines. (Hey, if they can take all of Abba's hits and work them into a plot about which of 3 guys impregnated the leading lady, then, what the hell.)
Each of these song tells part of the story, most of which you and I have lived through.
You write your own story as you follow the songs, and even if it doesn't turn out to be much of a book, it will be one hell of a score.
--- Jack Jones
