Garfunkel meets high standards with 2007's Some Enchanted Evening

Art Garfunkel began his career inauspiciously as one half of The Everly Brothers-inspired duo Tom And Jerry with Forest Hills, Queens, schoolmate Paul Simon (their 1957 single “Hey, Schoolgirl” even landed them an appearance on "American Bandstand". By the 1960s he had released a string of classic Simon & Garfunkel albums, culminating in 1970’s Grammy-winning Bridge Over Troubled Water. His resume includes forays into acting — he has appeared in the Mike Nichols-directed films Catch-22 (1969) and Carnal Knowledge (1971), Nicolas Roeg’s Bad Timing (1980) and Jennifer Lynch’s Boxing Helena (1993) — and a solo career that began in 1973 with his debut Angel Clare, featuring the hit “All I Know” penned by Jimmy Webb.
