Format: Audio CD
While none of Tony's covers of these wonderful songs improve on the original versions, they are all extremely well performed and this album may be the vehicle by which some of these ladies, especially the less famous among them, may win new fans. Of course, all of them were famous at one time but many have long since been forgotten.
The ladies paid tribute to are Barbra Streisand (People), Peggy Lee (I'm in love again), Judy Garland (Somewhere over the rainbow), Blossom Dearie (My love went to London), Sarah Vaughan (Poor butterfly), Doris Day (Sentimental journey), Carmen McRae (Cloudy morning), Rosemary Clooney (Tenderly), Mabel Mercer (Down in the depths), Margaret whiting (Moonlight in Vermont), Helen O'Connell (Tangerine), Billie Holiday (God bless the child), Dinah Washington (Daybreak), Ella Fitzgerald (You showed me the way), Lena Horne (Honeysuckle rose), Liza Minnelli (Maybe this time), Ethel Merman (I got rhythm) and Margaret Whiting again (My ideal).
It seems a little odd that Tony chose two Margaret Whiting songs, when you consider that Jo Stafford, Dinah Shore, June Christy, Jeri Southern, Helen Forrest, Julie London, Martha Tilton and many other wonderful ladies are not represented, but I suspect that he could not make up his mind between Moonlight in Vermont and My ideal, so he included both.
This is an outstanding collection that should please Tony's fans – or any fans of this type of music.

Format: Audio CD
Tony Bennett, a young 86 in August, is having a blooming Indian Summer these days. Of course he never went away, but there was a time when he wasn`t selling so many records, and thankfully those days are gone forever. Bennett is one of the great singers of American popular song. He`s the sunburst to Sinatra`s moonglow. Where Frank would worry a lyric, pensive to the end, all immaculately phrased, Tony opens his throat and lets rip with a voice of spine-rippling glory, every word audible, but with that full-hearted gleam in each note, so much so that he sometimes breaks into a wry laugh on some words - a habit that I for one wish he`d limit to once or at most twice a disc, as any more than that can sound premeditated.
He`s made a string of tremendous discs in recent years, and this is one of the liveliest and most unexpected, containing songs he might not have rcorded otherwise,
dedicated as it is to `the ladies`, some of the greats of the twentieth century. The only singer`s inclusion I`d question is Liza Minnelli, as I don`t think she is in the same class as the others (which include her Mum) though how could Tony pass up the chance to belt out a magnificent Maybe This Time?
Bennett`s laudable aim seems to be to gently educate the world about the `Great American Songbook` - as we have now come to call it - for which he is a perfect evangelist, one of the few left. (Rod Stewart? Don`t make me laugh.)
At first, it`s fascinating to read Tony`s comments about the female singer with whom each song is associated, hearing the songs with its woman`s voice in mind. But after a couple of plays, it`s simply another great Tony Bennett album, impeccably sung and played by Tony with his old buddy Ralph Sharon & his Trio, with orchestral accompaniment on some tracks.
