Tony Bennett: I Wanna Be Around – Newport Jazz Festival 2002

The video below will only work by copying and pasting but is worth the trouble to hear Tony Bennett sing in an HD quality video:

This video shows Tony Bennett at his best singing one of his standards that has been around for years. Those wanting to see more of his videos during the Newport Jazz Festival will be able to see Tony singing many of his hits including his signature song I Left My Heart in San Francisco in other videos also available at Wolfgang’s Vault website.

Tony is still active nine years later as he sang last Wednesday night, August 25 with Haley Reinhart of American Idol. He will be 85 years old later this year.

Voters are welcome to add their own favorites to list if they are still singing today, not necessarily recording music today.
