5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful as ever!, 10 April 2016
This is Tony's best work for some time. That's saying something! His first solo effort for 10 years, apart from a Christmas album. The voice is better that it sometimes is when singing live these days, but I have to say it's the style and musicality which brings the success. Nostalgia was always the emotion Tony was best at but now he can really convince with age and huge experience. Bill Charlap, having a ball, bounces along behind Tony like a puppy with ten tails and provides sumptuous support and wonderful jazz - not sounding so much of a Bill Evans clone as previously. No other singer in the world could give you this experience with these great songs. Well, not who's still alive, anyway!

This is a great product, free from complications. You can't mess up or hurt yourself, which was very important to me. Highly recommended!

This review is from: Sunflower/Surf's Up (Audio CD)
A splendid issue of two fine Beach Boys albums from 1970 and 1971. I've always loved Surf's Up but Sunflower is a welcome revelation. Very well produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine jazz album of great songs really well sung, 3 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Cheek to Cheek (Audio CD)
I've given this 5 stars as it achieves exactly what the artists seemed to want. A fine jazz album of great songs really well sung.
Lady Gaga has received some criticism from some quarters. I don't know why. She comes across as a rejuvenated Liza Minelli.
Tony's previous duet partner K D lang has a more beautiful voice, but Gaga has more joie de vivre. Tony's voice is aging of course, but to say he can still cut it is an understatement of immense proportions.He swings more effortlessly than the youngster as well,,of course.
Jazzwise the best things are Joe Lovano's pleasing Paul Gonsalves - like tenor sax solos and a collection of superb rhythm sections.
Of course the arrangements and musicianship are as excellent as one has come to expect from the previous 80 or so Tony Bennett albums we are lucky enough to have. What's not to like, especially if you love jazz?


Complete Collection [Box Set]
Complete Collection [Box Set]

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful box set., 15 Sept. 2014
I bought this box when it first came out for one thing. To get all the original albums (not compilations) on CD that had not been available before in that format. I got it. There's no point going on about what's missing. I've got most of those tracks anyway elsewhere.
Let us celebrate what's here. Singles are missing, sure, but the ones here sound better than they've ever done, even the real oldies.
So if you want Bennett's ALBUMS this is it. I only pine for "All that love went to waste" and "Some of these days" from 1973, because I used to have them on vinyl and lost 'em. You can't have perfection, but this box set does me pretty well, whatever the price!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic of its time, 10 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Spirit Of Christmas (Audio CD)
I'm crazy about Ray Charles, and here we have a Christmas album that's as good as his seventies stuff - that is - with top arrangers and singing at his best. This was 1984 I believe and full of goodies. How on earth can "The Little Drummer Boy" sound this good? Incredible.
If you liked the recent posthumous Ray Charles / Count Basie production, you'll love this. Can't wait for next Christmas to play it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solo time, 10 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 4 Way Street (Audio CD)
Having at long last bought the album at a good price after years of being scared off by eye watering price tags, I can listen once again, having lost the LP nearly 40 years ago. I believe it is an essential completion of the classic original recordings of this ensemble. BUT, it concentrates entirely on the songs, not the harmonies. They're all good, and I believe the performances are good too, but you'll get precious little satisfaction if you've bought it for harmony singing. So play "Crosby Stills and Nash", "Deja Vu", and then sit back and relax as these guys present their best songs.
All right, so Stills is pretentious and Nash too naive, but hey, it's rock music history!
