January 2017 – NYC VIBE went Up Close and Personal with a New York City Icon: Tony Bennett.

He left his heart in San Francisco, but his soul remains in New York City!

Born Anthony Benedetto in Astoria, Queens, this iconic singer of pop standards, big bands, show tunes, and jazz celebrates his 90th birthday with a career retrospective at the Paley Center for Media, exploring Mr. Bennett’s extraordinary life and his impact on American arts and culture.

NYC VIBE talks with producer/manager Danny Bennett (Tony’s son), and Mr. Bennett about his Queens roots and family, working the clubs on 52nd “Swing Street” in the 1950’s, his historic Carnegie Hall concert, and his relationships with New York City icons past and present: Frank Sinatra and Lady Gaga.
