Costello Banks On A Bennett

 Long an admirer of singer Tony Bennett, British popster Elvis Costello has turned to Bennett's son, Danny, to manage his career. Danny Bennett, of New York-based RPM Music Productions, has long handled his famous dad's business doings. Costello's last manager was Gill Taylor of By Eleven.

Meanwhile, Billboard U.K. correspondent Paul Sexton reports that Costello's still-untitled 12-song collaboration album with Burt Bacharach is set for release in the U.S. on Sept. 29. The album, due a day earlier internationally, will be the first release under Costello's multi-label pact with Mercury, PolyGram Classics, and PolyGram Jazz.
