As 2015 draws to a close, I want to take a few minutes to thank you all for another wonderful year at The Year Of Tony Bennett. I especially want to thank you for sticking by me this summer when I had to take off so much time for illness. I’m happy to report that I’m feeling great, in fact, better than ever. The only real downer for the year is that Mr. Bennett hasn’t visited the Pacific Northwest and so I didn’t get to see him in concert this year; this is the first year since I started this blog that I haven’t seen him in concert. Please come back to Portland or Seattle, Mr. Bennett. We miss you!
