“His voice is still a technical marvel, and no one else on Earth can make a lyric written eight decades ago sound as natural as a conversation at a coffee shop.” - New York Magazine
“Gratitude and joy, gruffness and beauty balance each other perfectly in singing that has grown more rhythmically acute with each passing year.” - The New York Times
With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, Tony Bennett is a musician who touches the hearts and souls of audiences with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence. His long list of achievements, spanning over 60 years, includes 19 Grammy® Awards, including the prestigious Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award, making this artist a true international treasure. Bennett is a vital musical artist at the peak of his powers.
Bennett’s initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950's, including such chart-toppers as "Because of You," "Rags to Riches" and a remake of Hank Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart." He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including "I Wanna Be Around," "The Good Life," "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?” and his signature song, "I Left My Heart In San Francisco.” Bennett is one of only a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ‘90s and 2010’s. He introduced a multitude of songs into the great American Songbook that have since become pop music classics.
