I just watched the 2011 version and thank you for suggesting it! It was wonderful!

You are back!!!! Makes me think you are feeling better. Sending hugs and more pink flamingo feathers to further the healing.

Thank you! Yes, recovery from spine surgery slow but so steady that I am picking up lots of notes scribbled on envelopes and fleshing them into stories like this one…feels good...and all those hugs and flamingo feathers are doing their magic for rehab!

Oh Paul,
The very essence of a dynamic duo who are thrilled to collaborate or coolaborate!!

Tony is handsome and vital and impressive in his improvisations and Lady Gaga is an old soul in a hot body and glamorous dress.

Their energy is on FIRE.

Nice Paul! Did you know that Gray Sargent played with them from 2017-2021 and has relocated here and played for Freddie's 80th birthday last summer.

Thanks, Prez,
Starting to write again after a pause because spine surgery on March 3 put everything on hold. If recovery goes well I shall return to the dance floor sometime in June.
Really cool video of the talented Gray Sargent. Hope to see him in the future.

Susan Bennett

Did you see their special. It was terrific.

Found it on Amazon Prime...stay tuned,,,


HI Paul,

Thanks for sending! We saw Tony Bennett at the Kodak Theatre in Rochester, NY in 2017. We were there to see our son at U Rochester, and Tony was one of the weekend events. On his last song, (I Left My Heart in SF?), he told the audience that the Kodak Theatre was one of the most perfectly acoustical theaters he had performed in. He put his microphone aside, and sang without any amplification. It is a moment that I will never forget. Perfect pitch, perfect sound, absolutely beautiful. We are so lucky to have been there and will always have the memory.

What a fitting memory of Tony Bennett. Listeners who know anything about music recognize his voice the moment they hear it, and he proved that you heard it in about as acoustically pure a space as there is.
