  3. Tony Bennett: A Tribute with Nelson Aspen and Allyson Briggs


Nelson Aspen and Allyson Briggs have a new tribute show to the great Tony Bennett who passed away last July 21 at the age of 96.  In 2012, after meeting the legendary crooner a few times around Manhattan, Aspen was invited to Bennett's home overlooking Central Park to do a TV segment on his impressive work as a painter.  The two spent several hours together, leaving Aspen forever dazzled by not only the star's talents, but insight, humility and hospitality.

Their show "Tony Bennett: A Tribute" will feature clips from Aspen's time with the artist born Anthony Dominick Benedetto, reflections on Bennett's humanitarian work, career highlights and support of young musicians.  And, of course, plenty of songs from The Great American Songbook that Tony Bennett infused with his signature style.

Just as Tony Bennett was famous for his duets with other singing stars, Aspen will be joined by Allyson Briggs, renowned bandleader of Manhattan's hottest jazz band, Fleur Seule.  Together, they reimagine some of those musical moments as they have in previous engagements at NYC's Greenroom42 and the Triad Theater.  

Aspen promises it will be an intimate way for audiences to remember Bennett's artistry, life and legacy.  "Everyone has a story about Tony and his generosity of spirit, whether they ever got the privilege to meet him or not.  Now we can all come together and share that."
