Tony Bennett

Duets II |


As savvy as ever at 85, Tony Bennett leaves no box unchecked on this smooth sequel to 2006’s hit Duets: An American Classic. His glittery array of partners covers every market, from pop (Lady Gaga) and R&B (Aretha Franklin) to country (Carrie Underwood) and classical (Andrea Bocelli). There’s even a bilingual duet with Latin star Alejandro Sanz. Meanwhile “Body and Soul” revives the jazzy spirit of Amy Winehouse.
