Elvis Costello and Tony Bennett


NME

"OK Elv baby. From the top! A-one, a-two, a-one-two-three: 'I left my heart' — mmm, thas nice — in Yates' Wine Lodge...'"

Actually the tune our crooners are mooning to is "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing" — Elvis Costello joins Tony Bennett and the Count Basie Orchestra in New York niterie Le Parrot for the filming of a US nostalgia show called Swing It Again. Costello's performance, before an invited audience of 1000 posers in full '40s swag, wasn't without hitches. But the Basie crew weren't complaining: they were on time and a half after 11.

All the same the trombone player did confide: "Who is that cat? Never heard of him! Can't sing neither..."
