Tony Bennett re-records lost first hit as a duet with Diana Krall / Calgary Herald

Bookmark and Share

The singer first recorded George and Ira Gershwin's standard Fascinating Rhythm in 1949, when he was still using his birth name, Joe Bari. It was presumed lost until a collector discovered it - and now Bennett has taken the track back to the studio. He has re-recorded the tune with Diana Krall and the New York jazz group The Bill Charlap Trio for his new album of Gershwin tributes, titled Love Is Here to Stay, which is set for release next month. The album also features the tracks My One And Only, Nice Work If You Can Get It, I've Got A Crush On You, and They Can't Take That Away From Me.  LARRY BUSACCA / GETTY IMAGES FOR EXPLORING THE ARTS, INC.
