I came across this wonderful interview on YouTube; Tony Bennett being interviewed by Malcolm Gerrie. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It is a bit long, but I promise it’s worth your time.
The Wall Street Journal published a very lovely article, “Before the Music, Tony Bennett Painted,” about our favorite artist: Anthony Benedetto. This really is a must-read.

I came across a wonderful interview with Tony Bennett conducted by Bruce Klauber for ICON magazine, an arts magazine for the Philadelphia area. The interview was also included on the WRTI website. Click here to read this very good interview.
Bruce and Tony talk about the art of singing, jazz, Count Basie, Lady Gaga, Duke Ellington and much, much more. It’s thoughtful and very interesting.
You can read the same interview from the July 2013 edition of ICON on the ICON magazine website with a nice photograph of Mr. Bennett.
A nice interview with Mr. Bennett, conducted in his New York art studio. It was shown on Australian television in 2012, just prior to his tour there.
