Album Review

This 15-track torch and ballads collection is drawn mostly from the vaults of Tony Bennett's Improv label, which existed between 1975 and 1977. This was the label he created to get away — for a while — from the strict rules of being on a major label. Here he could take the chances he wanted to and not worry about his recording contract being in jeopardy. The players on these sides were a close-knit group of Bennett's associates and friends, and included Ruby Braff, John Giuffrida, Torrie Zito, Chuck Hughes, George Barnes, and Wayne Wright.

For the price, few if any will be disappointed, but this would not be a first choice for most Bennett fans.

And from the mid-'80s on, he achieved renewed popularity with generations of listeners who hadn't been born when he first appeared. This, however, defines Bennett more in terms of marketing than music. He would probably...
