Reaping the Tony rewards

Tony Bennett has been in the music business for more than 40 years, but when it comes to promoting himself in the video age, the 67-year-old crooner still knows all the latest moves. While autographing copies of his new recording, Unplugged, at a downtown Toronto music store last week, Bennett decided, on the spur of the moment, to drop by the studios of MuchMusic, the music-video channel, where he had been interviewed two days earlier.
