    Tony Bennett

    Tony Bennett and Michael have been friends for a long time.  Tony is a much admired painter, and when Tony and Michael get together, they usually talk about art.   But once in a while, they get together at WBGO and talk about Tony’s life as a great singer.  Just before a performance last Sunday at NJPAC, Michael talked with Tony about his recent world travels, his new CD (Viva Duets), his new DVD (The Zen of Tony Bennett), his new philosophical memoir (Life Is a Gift), and his life’s work (73 CD’s and 3 DVD’s, The Complete Collection).   If you missed Part I of the interview, see below.
