Tony Bennett - He's Still Got It!

This weekend I got to experience another one of my dream concerts. For my birthday, I got to see Tony Bennett live at Radio City Music Hall. And he was AMAZING! Better than I had even dreamed. Tony & his quartet were musical perfection. Not a note out of place. Every song swoon-worthy. Standing ovations non-stop. The entire theater hung on his every whisper. He simply out-shown every performer on the circuit today. Truly outstanding.

And lucky me, I get to share the experience with you! Earlier this year, Tony Bennett recorded the bulk of his concert set for BBC One at LSO St. Lukes, London. And some wonderful person has uploaded most of it onto YouTube. So, enjoy!!

Accompaniment by Bruce Barth on piano, Gray Sargent on guitar, Harold Jones on drums and Paul Langosch on double bass.
