Breakfast with Art Garfunkel

Paul Zollo, SongTalk, 1993

SIMON AND GARFUNKEL are rehearsing. We're at the Paramount theatre in Manhattan on an October afternoon, about halfway into their unprecedented 21-night series of sold-out shows, a retrospective of Simon's career that begins and ends with a Simon & Garfunkel reunion, and is connected by all the facets of Simon's extraordinary career: folk, gospel, doo-wop, jazz, rock, plus the invigorating, beautiful rhythms of his African and Brazilian- based songs.
