Biography

Tony Bennett: DUETS II

Less than ten months before he would celebrate his 85th birthday, Tony Bennett stood on the field of AT&T Park in San Francisco during the 7th inning of the first game of the 2010 World Series between the Giants and Texas Rangers (San Francisco would go on to win the championship in 5 games). This was his second time “at bat” during the game. ... Read more in Amazon's Tony Bennett Store

Editorial Reviews

Tony Bennett s warm style is especially winning on classic Christmas material. The Classic Christmas features 17 songs from 4 of Bennett s Christmas Albums,
hand-picked by Tony Bennett himself, as well as the previously unreleased "What Child Is This."

The Classic Christmas includes 5 tracks from the Grammy-nominated A Swingin' Christmas (featuring the Count Basie Big Band). A beautiful arrangement
on "I' ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" (which also happens to be a rare duet with his daughter, Antonia Bennett) compliments the great accomplishment
of treating standards, like "I ll Be Home for Christmas" and "My Favorite Things" -- as though they were ripe for the re-imagining (which, of course, they are).

Five tracks are pulled from Bennett s 1968 release, Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album, which features a playful orchestral backup, courtesy of
Robert Fanon. The versions of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" emphasize the
romantic elements to great effect, while Bennett s take on My Favorite Things is superlative. Where so many artists just re-make the same holiday album
every other year, Bennett has opted to append new material to his sole original.

The London Symphony Orchestra lend support on 4 more traditional favorites; "Deck The Halls," "O Little Town Of Bethlehem," "O Come All Ye Faithful" and
"Silent Night"

Format:Audio CD
Seventeen of these eighteen tracks have been selected by the vocalist from his catalog of albums and compilation appearances on Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album (1968), The Playground (1998), Our Favorite Things (2001), Christmas with Tony Bennett (2002) and A Swingin' Christmas (2008). The album's one previously unreleased title is a Marion Evans arrangement of the traditional "What Child is This." Bennett appears in orchestral, big band and small combo settings, and though the original albums can still be found, this provides a nice sampling across forty years of his stylish takes on holiday standards. Bennett sings with a jazzy cool unparalleled by his peers or followers, and together with some hot charts (particularly those for the Basie band), he gives new life to these holiday chestnuts. The Bennett fanatic in your family may be expecting the monumental 73-CD Complete Collection under the tree, but the rest of the family will be satisfied by this warm collection of classics. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

Tony Bennett's voice is amazing -- smooth, understated elegance. This is a holiday CD that won't disappoint you. Almost seems a pity to listen to it only in the month of December!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mellow Moment with Tony January 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To review a work by Mr. Bennett is like trying to review the golden hours of sunset after a day of rain that washes all the impurities from the sky. Words fail. I sit back and enjoy it. Each hearing brings different insights and different memories.

Let your fingers run, not walk, to buy this cd or any recording by this national treasure

3.0 out of 5 stars Clarification December 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Just to clarify: Tony's version of 'What Child Is This' HAS been released in the past, but only once and long ago. It was included on 'The Great Songs of Christmas - Album Eight', which was sold at Goodyear stores in Christmastime 1968. It is very welcome to have available again for those still clinging to old/scratched vinyl.

Unless it is Tony and Rosemary Clooney. The CD came fast, in great condition, and hard not to listen to it all year 'round. Thank you for adding to many Christmas' to come.
