I love Billy bailing the song out at the end at 6:17 lol. I think Tony Bennett improvised that part and the band had to improvise as well!

Jim Rodgers
I get goosebumps when Mr. Bennett walks on stage and starts to sing. EVERY TIME and I've watched this many many times. It being at big Shea is part and parcel to that. The sound they produced for this concert was impeccable.
Joao Aurelio

Joey V
YES I'm ALWAYS in a New York state of mind...

What an incredible combination of artists.  Joel can write sing and perform and Bennett can interpret anything well written with his own unique voice and style.  Amazing.
Jonathan Gardyn
4:32 Rivera's having a fangirl moment right there...

It takes a super star like Billy Joel to realize you can bring on another top talent and rather than lose the spotlight, it actually shines brighter on both of you.

Thomas Norman
Billy Joel has a wonderful smile
Threnody Coronach
Billy Joel can not only write some wonderful lyrics, but he can sing them like they belong to his soul - and even better, play the hell out of the piano to accompany himself. He's brilliantly talented.
Timothy Draycott
This is the best thing ever
Uber R
Here is an idea, alternate this version of this song with New York New York from Frank Sinatra at Times Square for the New Year Celebration. How many people like this idea?
Wesley Rester
That sax player totally had a fanboy moment.
Zachary Schultz

aceparrot2015
Anyone else hear the saxophone \
actormanic
Music tastes are subjective. We don't all hear it in the same way. What can inspire some, can annoy others, so we can't all be expected to like the same things....That said, the (so far) 31 people who clicked the \

I simply can't watch this without getting emotional. Good grief, two giants at their peaks singing a classic tune backed by a perfect band...geez, it doesn't get better. If it does I may not be able to take it.
