The love affair that began forty years ago with Tony Bennett and the City by the Bay continues with a very special evening of song, "TONY BENNETT'S WONDERFUL WORLD: LIVE FROM SAN FRANCISCO." Filmed at the famed Fairmont Hotel on Nob Hill. This is a great concert DVD with great audio & video. You can't go wrong with Tony and he definately doesn't disappoint in this intimate evening. He is spot on and just simply amazing for any age. He is the last of the greats!
I love easy jazz. I love the great songs from years ago. I love tremendously talented musicians who don't see a need to play at 120 plus decibels to "make music". I love "professionals" like Tony Bennett and the late Frank Sinatra who knew how to adjust with age and sing within their diminished vocal range, allowing their voices to age like fine wine in oaken kegs... So here you have Tony Bennett, now about 76, singing to a packed ballroom at the Fairmont Hotel (I've visited this hotel) on Nob Hill in downtown San Francisco. Backing him is the great Clayton Cameron on drums and Lee Musiker on the 9 foot Yamaha grand piano. Paul Langosch does a great job on bass, and Gray Sargent an adequate job on guitar. (I say adequate, because if you've seen Anthony Wilson play guitar with Diana Krall's band on "Live in Paris", Gray's comping chords and solo runs begin to pale in comparison).
