Ladies and gentlemen, Tony Bennett

Frank Sinatra called him "the best singer in the business." He is an accomplished artist whose paintings are in demand. He works constantly, spending most of the year touring all over the world. But to see him perform live is get at the what drives all of that. It's joy. When you see him onstage it's soon clear that doing what he does, surrounded by the musicians whom he never stops acknowledging, it is with true joy and wonder that he feels lucky to be doing what he does for his audience, not the other way around. He has the face of a man who has lived the life he was meant to live.
