In almost any profile of Tony Bennett, the singer whose career has spanned seven decades, you can read about how Bennett is still releasing albums, creating more work and performing. Not just performing, but performing well.

He has sections of his Wikipedia page called “Still no retirement,” and “Bennett continues to perform.”

There’s always a hint of shock, because his career longevity is seemingly unprecedented.

Bennett just turned 92 on Aug. 3.
