Tony Martin at Feinstein's
The 95-year-old crooner's show is best experienced as a night about nostalgia.
Martin was never an A-list star, but rare is the man who has had his good fortune. Some of his most memorable hit recordings were the result of bigger stars turning down material. That's how he came to record "There's No Tomorrow" (based on "Ole Sole A Mio") when Perry Como declined to record it, and "Begin the Beguine" when Bing Crosby declined to take it, saying, "Let the kid do it." His good fortune didn't end there. In 1948, the singer married the beautiful Cyd Charisse, to whom he is still married -- and who attends every one of his shows at Feinstein's.
