5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of thrilling September 24, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I’m a big Tony Bennett fan and I've really admired the way he’s reinvented himself on an almost continuous basis, starting with the epic MTV Unplugged CD in the early ‘90’s. Of course, the duets albums have also been an incredible sensation, to the point where even other singers will compose laments to not doing a duet with Mr. Bennett (Kevin Mahogany, Old New Borrowed and the Blues). My awareness of Lady Gaga and her work was, until this recording, limited to a picture of her in a meat dress and the song “Poker Face”, which I think I heard once. And until the Wall Street Journal wrote about this recording, as much as I like Tony Bennett, I had no intention of purchasing this. But, if the Wall Street Journal tells you a pop star you have no interest in has serious jazz chops when singing with a jazz legend like Tony Bennett, you pay attention and buy the recording.

And am I ever glad I did. I absolutely love what Tony and Lady have done with this collection of standards. They've literally made the songs their own, sung their hearts out, and ended up with what is arguably one of the best vocal jazz albums to come out in years, if not decades. The arrangements are all swinging and most use a commanding big band format that is positively scintillating. On top of that, they've chosen a great selection of songs that encompasses all the highlights of the American songbook: Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, a couple by Duke Ellington, and a healthy sampling of the Gershwins, among others. Tony and Lady each take two solos, allowing them to sort of put their individual stamp on the recording, with Lady’s soulful rendering of Billy Strayhorn’s Lush Life narrowly edging out Tony’s Sophisticated Lady for top solo honors. But honestly, the duets are what this is all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great duo September 23, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Who would have thought that Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga would do an album together. As a lover of the American standards when I first heard their rousing rendition of The Lady is a Tramp, I was delighted to find out they would. Of the two it is of course Bennett who shines the most here with his mellow understated tones and impeccable phrasing. But Lady Gaga has some remarkable chops for such a young artist. Her only flaw is sometimes not knowing when to hold back just a little. On some of these songs, however, she does, with terrific results. She flies solo on Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye and is smooth and measured filling the song with the heartache and longing which was intended by Porter. She makes similar work of the wistful ballad Lush Life. Bennett takes a beautiful turn on his solo numbers, as expected. Together they can work magic as on one of my favorites, Kern's buoyant number I Won't Dance and the also lively, Let's Face the Music and Dance, more up tempo numbers. They just aren't as evenly matched as Bennett and say, K.D. Lang, on the ballads with the exception of the gorgeous But Beautiful. On this song they duet beautifully. Overall however this album does a great job of bringing some freshness to the great American songbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just so very special! September 23, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
A couple of years ago when, at Thanksgiving, Lady Gaga appeared in a holiday special with guest performer Tony Bennett, I said, "They should do an album together." And now we have it. Tony is a miracle...I mean, come on, eighty-eight years of age and he sounds absolutely fabulous! And now with his sixty-year-younger partner, Tony just proves (as if he has to) that he holds such a very special place in the world of music. Both Tony and the Lady introduce each other to their respective audiences, winning for each even more fans of just really good music. What I like about this pairing is what I don't care for on the new Barbra Streisand album...Tony has found someone with whom he pairs so well; Barbra tends to just show up the minimal talents, for the most part, of those she chooses to sing with...except for Michael Buble. An album of duets with just him would have been perfection! Tony instead finds a vocalist whose style meshes so well with his; he did the same in the work he did with k.d. lang. They worked so well together. The same happens here with Lady Gaga. If you've seen them interviewed together or if you look back to Tony's last duet album and the music he made with her, you can tell they get such a kick out of making music together. Those of us who enjoy the standards are very happy indeed, the lucky recipients of this treasure they've created.

Disclaimers: I'm an old guy, not *quite* as old as Tony, but getting there. And this album was an enormous surprise to me.

Not for TB -- he isn't exactly getting better with age, but he's doing a remarkable job holding his own (or perhaps only slightly deteriorating). It helps that his voice and jazz style aren't as demanding as some art forms might be, but the body of work he's produced and his lasting power is truly tremendous.

The revelation here was Ms. Gaga. I shouldn't have been that surprised, as her duet with Bennett on his initial "Duets" album was very good, but here she reveals a good grasp of the genre and a voice that is quite melodic, certainly something I would not have guessed from her more familiar style.

The album is by turns romantic, playful, charming and moving. I would rate it as one of Tony's best.

What's up with the makeup?
My thoughts EXACTLY, Steve! I actually wondered who the woman on the front cover was... I had NO idea it was Lady Gaga. What in the heck did she do to herself?? And, a mortician must have done Tony Bennett's make-up. I'll be first in line to get this album, though..!
