Joe Barrett gives a light touch of New York to his narration of this memoir by singer Tony Bennett, a native New Yorker. Barrett shares his talent for dialect and accent as listeners hear conversations that Bennett recalls with people who helped guide his long and distinguished career. Pearl Bailey gave Bennett his first break, and Bob Hope took him on the road and changed his name. Although Bennett has performed for many years, he remains true to his jazz roots. His international renown continues to this day. As for Barrett, he can count his performance of Bennett's recollections as a resounding success in a career par excellence. E.E.S.
