Singer Tony Bennett: 'Modern music is terrible'

The majority of songs written today are "terrible", legendary singer Tony Bennett has said.

The 87-year-old crooner explained that record labels only have eyes for making money.

Mr Bennett, best known for the song I Left My Heart In San Francisco, also told the BBC's Rebecca Jones that his own voice "has never sounded better".

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 20 March.
