No one else in popular American music has recorded for so long and at such a high level of excellence as TONY BENNETT. In the last ten years alone he has sold ten million records. Today, TONY BENNETT’S artistry and accomplishments are applauded worldwide by people from 9 to 90 years old. With a six-decade recording career that has seen him become one of the most celebrated performers of our time, TONY BENNETT is still a master of his craft—crooning with a panache that is effortless, passionate, and lands right in the pocket. Audiences around the globe give this living legend ovation after ovation not because TONY BENNETT is simply still performing, but because he is still belting out the Great American Songbook with a verve to make even a young Sinatra turn green with envy.
