5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous
I saw the documentary on Sky Arts about the making of duets II and it featured all the tracks being recorded. I was totally sold. These albums are so well crafted and all the accompanying artists have been chosen very well. You may rather cut your own toes off than listen to Lady Gaga under normal circumstances but in combination with Tony she just blows you away. That is...

2.0 out of 5 stars Getting on a bit
Though he still has a great voice, Bennett seems to have scraped these duet barrels to their limits.
Nowhere near as good as the first selection (American Classics) this smacks of both a frenzy by young hipsters to be attached to the coat tails of an old crooner & a tired exploitation by a record company to milk a golden egg.
A few tracks are, indeed very good,...

These albums are so well crafted and all the accompanying artists have been chosen very well. You may rather cut your own toes off than listen to Lady Gaga under normal circumstances but in combination with Tony she just blows you away. That is the same for many of the other artists with Tony bringing something extra out of them.

A few tracks are, indeed very good, not least the haunting baritone of Josh Grohan on "This is all I ask"-also one of the better song selections & arrangements

Both discs are excellent but duets 11 is outstanding the highlite for me being Tony and Lady Gaga. Did not know she could sing like that--WOW. Some really classic songs.

We first heard this CD on holiday in Hawaii, and liked it so much that we decided to buy it when we got home. It's very pleasant easy listening, and containd duets by Tony with many well known and not so well known female singers. Very nice.

These two CDs are fantastic. The choice of songs is superb and some of the guest artists work so well with Tony that these CDs are really well worth adding to any easy listening music lover's collection.

This review is from: Duets: An American Classic & Duets Ii (Audio CD)
Box set of 2 x albums, all duets with well known singers.
Beautifully produced.
Tony Bennett's voice is "easy listening", the twist is the beautiful partnerships with his "Duettists"!
Good value price, too.
