Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The voice of Tony Bennett (born Anthony Dominick Benedetto) is a treasure, an instrument so timeless that his friend Frank Sinatra once called him "the best goddamn pop singer I've ever heard." Bennett ranks among the greats thanks to his remarkable vocal control, his ability to effortlessly paint every intimate detail when crooning a ballad, or his skill in belting out pop and jazz standards that seem to overflow with joy. Tony Bennett's New York is an insightful, personal look inside the singer's life, including interviews with friends such as Mitch Miller, Max Roach, and family members, along with Bennett's own reflections from various points around New York City -- where he was born and first tasted fame. The tour scenes are interspersed with live performances from Atlantic City, and historical archival footage provides sense of Bennett's life and times. It is a life begun in the Depression and WWII, leading to his march with Martin Luther King Jr. and his triumphant reemergence to a new generation of fans in the '90s. A thorough and entertaining look at the undisputed king of cool.
