A gift for Tony Bennett fans, illustrated with page-filling color and black and white photos—many of them rare or previously unpublished, from the archives of Life magazine and Bennett's music label—this is a visual tribute to the celebrated singer. It takes us through every stage of Bennett's journey, from World War II veteran to pop idol of the 1950s, family man to civil rights advocate, and his stunning late-career success with collaborators like Lady Gaga, Norah Jones, Elvis Costello, and k.d. lang. Here too are images of the singer indulging his other love, painting, and a final shot of Bennett singing on the same Calabrian mountain where his father John Benedetto was said to have sung to the whole valley.
