Bennett duo tunes up RPM disc bow

'Falling' hits high note

It was Danny Bennett’s turn to step into the limelight at the tony Art Deco lounge Torch on Tuesday night, as his father, crooner Tony Bennett, looked on from the corner booth.

The Bennetts hosted the party to celebrate “Falling into Place” by Mike Viola and the Candy Butchers, the first release from their new label, RPM Records, a joint venture with Sony Music. Viola’s music had its widest audience to date in Tom Hanks’ 1996 film “That Thing You Do!”

The band took the stage after Danny Bennett’s proud introduction, but before that, the room was treated to an advanced listening of Tony Bennett’s latest CD, “Bennett Sings Ellington: Hot and Cool,” a collection of big band swing and orchestral love songs out next month that reps RPM’s second release.

Although most of the guests crammed into the Ludlow Street boite hailed from the Brat Pack era and not the Rat Pack, the crowd nonetheless sipped martinis and listened appreciatively to the elegant tunes.
