NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) -- Tony Bennett and Dave Brubeck (BRU-beck) spun some of their old magic when they performed together for only the second time in their 60-plus-year careers.

Brubeck closed his set at the CareFusion Jazz Festival 55 at Newport, R.I., on Sunday with his quartet's classic ''Take Five,'' which he recorded 50 years ago. A few songs into Bennett's set, Brubeck returned to the stage at Fort Adams State Park to perform with the singer for the first time in 47 years.

Bennett said he got a thrill from playing with Brubeck.
