Tony on NPR This Saturday
Tony Bennett will be interviewed by Scott Simon on Saturday’s Weekend Edition. That’s this Saturday, October 10, 2015. NPR will be posting the interview on their site that day; I’ll touch back here and add the URL. Scott adores Tony and I think it will be a great interview.

The Zen of Bennett, indeed.
Tony Bennett Interviews
Two very thoughtful interviews have come to our attention this week.
First is from our friends at JazzTimes Magazine, conducted by Roseanne Vitro. The introduction to this interview contains this statement that I believe 100%:
There are artists whose impact on the planet is incalculable. Tony Bennett is one of them.
You can read the article online at the JazzTimes website.
Second is from the archives at the Canadian Broadcast Corporation that were recorded in the late 1960s or early 1970s. We want to thank the great people at The Notes You Don’t Play blog for seeking out this interview and providing links to it. The Notes You Don’t Play site is devoted to interviews with jazz musicians … they are doing great work and deserve our support.
