Tony Bennett's second, and final, meeting with Bill Evans is a memorable session for several reasons. Bennett is very relaxed and inspired by Evans' imaginative yet reserved accompaniment, which allows the spotlight to stay focused on the singer. The program is a wide-ranging mix of standards ("You Don't Know What Love Is" and "Dream Dancing") and classic jazz compositions (including Evans' bittersweet "The Two Lonely People," and Thad Jones' moving "A Child is Born"). The two veterans blend so well, that it sounds as if getting together in the studio was a regular occurrence. Evans performs the subtle ballad "The Bad and the Beautiful" as a solo, the only song which Bennett sits out.
Perfect! wish there were 6 stars available
when you take two people, put them in a studio, and you don't give them the benefits of a 40 piece orchestra or a 128 track digital mixing board with overdubbing or "punch-ins" to insert missed notes or words, its a recipe for disaster.....unless the two people in the studio are Bill Evans and Tony Bennett. This is the second album in the set, and I think that you get a little more of Bill Evans than in the first one, which I like. But this is a great album if you are really interested in perfect vocal stying and wonderful interplay between voice and piano. I can't get enough of it. I had this one in college, and i literally played it so much that the casette copies eventually wore out. Now its on the ipod FOREVER!!! pick this one up if you aren't sure, and if you just want to get one or two cuts, try Who Can I Turn To? which is a song that most people know, or maybe A Child is Born. Enjoy this one!
This album is what happens when you combine one of the premier Amercan singers of the 20th Century with one of the most influential Jazz pianists to ever grace the stage, it is an exceptional work of art. Tony Bennet is in rare form and Bill Evans exemplifies grace and style in his accompaniment. I was unaware that they had collaborated a second time after their amazing first effort and I am more than glad that ITunes had the foresight to make this album available. I highly recommend this record to fans of either of these outstanding artists. My only warning is that you may want to hear it over and over again.
