Biography

The son of a grocer and Italian-born immigrant, Anthony Dominick Benedetto was born on August 3, 1926, in the Astoria section of Queens, New York. He attended the High School of Industrial Arts in Manhattan, where he nurtured his dual passions, singing and painting. His boyhood idols included Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole, both big influences on Bennett’s easy, natural singing style. ... Read more in Amazon's Tony Bennett Store

This collection of "Duets II" to celebrate Bennett's 85th birthday is so far better than the original "Duets" album of five years ago that it is difficult to believe that five years have actually passed and that this album isn't actually taken from undiscovered recordings of Bennett during his comeback years of the late eighties and nineties. It isn't, of course, having been recorded earlier this year. I suspect the reasons this album works so well are two. First, the selection of singers to team up with Bennett seems to have been done less with star power in mind and more with careful consideration of the kinds of singers who work well with his voice. Second, the songs themselves are no longer (for the most part) the "greatest hits" seen to poor effect on "Duets". Rather they are songs carefully chosen to show off Bennett's ageing, but still emotive and powerful, voice. It can be no coincidence that many of these songs are the staples that make up his present day concerts. There is no question that Bennett has sounded better in his career - it would be ridiculous if an 85 year old man sounded as good as he did at 45. The amazing thing is that he still sounds great. Not just great for 85, but great.

Some particular highlights on this album include:

- The Lady Is A Tramp (Bennett and Lady Gaga both swing masterfully, and it's on this track that Bennett sounds youngest and most carefree)
- Don't Get Around Much Anymore (Bennett and Michael Bublé clearly appreciate each other's style, and push each other along - again Bennett sounds vibrant and fresh)
- Blue Velvet (an inspired idea to bring back k.d.

The CD and DVD are both so exhilarating! The idea of Tony Bennett singing together with musicians of all different standards and genre is just fantastic, it all blends so well. The DVD is quite touching! To see him together with persons like Sheryl Crow, Andrea Boccelli and the late Amy Winehouse, is quite emotional. And who would have thought that Lady Gaga would be involved in such a project. Summary: FANTASTIC!!!

This is produced on top quality heavywieght Vinyl. The content of the recording has some ups and downs. Overall its worth the money. Highpoints for me were Queen Latifa, Lady gaga, KD Laing, for the girls, and Michael Buble, Alejandro Sanz, and John Mayer for the boys. Surprisingly Aretha Franklin, and Amy Winehouse disapointed.
The music is well produced but don't expect "big band" sound its been done with a much smaller "tighter" band and has a very intimate feel. Deserving of 5 Stars

I heard this album discussed by Simon Mayo on the Bbc interviewing Tony Benett, and bought it then. I had never thought much of Amy Winehouse but the track and hearing Tony Benett talk about her changed my mind. Similarly, the Ms Gaga - I had never considered that she might be able to sing properly.

This album is not only great listening, it is thought provoking in the way it made me more tolerant of modern performers I had dismissed as irrelevant tome.

CD arrived this morning and I am so pleased with it. The TV is off and I am just relaxing to the beautiful tracks. I real mix of duets. I was very suprised to hear Lady Gaga sing so well - who would have thought it?! All of the tracks are superb, a real class act all in all. They just don't make em like Tony Bennett any more and despite his advanced years, his voice is as good as ever.
