Like with any great singer, it's often the telling pauses of the man born Anthony Benedetto that say the most in "The Zen of Bennett."

These elements leave the documentary hanging somewhere between a glorified making-of album promo and a more in-depth portrait of the artist.

Friendly doc offers plentiful guest stars but only one perspective on the singer's career.

The way Mr. Bennett talks is the way he sings. There is no subtext, only the song conveyed with knowledge, heart, a sophisticated sense of swing and a positive attitude.
