Summary, etc.: "Tony talks about Charlie Chaplin; Judy Garland; Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Cole Porter; Amy Winehouse; Fred Astaire; Lady Gaga; members of his family; significant places and other wonders that have enriched his own life. Recounting his relations with these entertainers, humanitarians, and loved ones ... Tony reveals how he has been shaped by the principles each of them imparted to him."--Publisher description.
At ninety, musician and artist Tony Bennett is as vibrant and productive as ever. In addition to his prodigious musical output, including albums, concerts, and personal appearances, this beloved and enduring singer has written his second book. While in his 2012 work Life Is a Gift, Tony reflected on the lessons he has learned over the years, in Just Getting Started he pays homage to the remarkable people who inspired those lessons. In his warm, engaging tone, Tony talks about Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Cole Porter, Amy Winehouse, Fred Astaire, Lady Gaga, members of his family, significant places, and other wonders that have enriched his own life. Recounting his relationships with these entertainers, humanitarians, and loved ones, Tony reveals how he has been shaped by the principles each of them imparted to him. As enchanting and unforgettable as his music, Just Getting Started is a beautiful compilation of reflections every Bennett fan will treasure, and a perfect introduction for those just getting to know this extraordinary star and generous spirit. The child of Italian immigrants, Bennett grew up in Astoria, Queens, during the Great Depression. After serving as an infantryman in World War II, he studied singing and signed with Columbia Records in 1950, releasing his first hit with the label in 1951. Over the course of his career, which has spanned more than sixty years, he has sold millions of albums that have achieved gold and platinum status both in the United States and Worldwide, and has won nineteen Grammy Awards. On August 3, 2016, Tony turned ninety.--Dust jacket.
At ninety, Bennett's career as a musician and artist is as productive as ever. Here, he pays homage to the remarkable people who inspired his life lessons: family, friends and entertainers that have enriched his own life through the principles they imparted to him.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 November #1
    "Just getting started" at 90, Bennett tells readers that he learned joy from Louis Armstrong, the essence of elegance from Pablo Picasso, and the rewards of collaboration from Harold Arlen. He called Astoria, Queens, his home and, yes, he famously left his heart in San Francisco. His admiration for Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse would befit someone 70 years his junior, while his professional debt to Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and Johnny Mercer goes back nearly that far. From Fred Astaire to Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland to Pearl Bailey, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Abraham Lincoln, Bennett credits iconic artists, political figures, family members, and various places with teaching him vital lessons about life and show business. The singer and painter's third autobiographical book, following Life Is a Gift (2012), and written with backup from Simon, is as breezy and meaningful as one of his trademark songs as readers learn about the man by the company he kept and the heroes he worships. Bennett's ethereal still lifes and landscape paintings adorn this simple yet profound and gracious homage. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
