On August 28, 1962 jazz legends Tony Bennett and Dave Brubeck joined together for a special performance at the Sylvan Theater in Washington, DC for the White House Seminar American Jazz Concert.  The event was hosted by President John F. Kennedy as a thank you to the college interns who worked in the nation's capital all summer.  While the Bennett-Brubeck hit song "That Old Black Magic" from that performance has been in circulation for many years, recordings of the full concert were just discovered in December 2012, shortly after Brubeck died.  RPM/Columbia/Legacy Recordings will release the entire concert performance, for the first time, entitled Bennett & Brubeck: The White House Sessions, Live 1962 on May 28, 2013.
