Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This 1954 release was Tony Bennett's first full album and one of Columbia's first 12" long-playing records. He puts a jazz spin on I Fall in Love Too Easily; My Baby Just Cares for Me; Old Devil Moon; Love Letters , and a bunch of other standards. CD debut for Bennett's breakthrough album!

Amazon.com

Although he'd scored a string of successful pop singles for Columbia in the early 1950s, Tony Bennett's career as jazz singer proper began on this, his first effort in the fledgling LP format. This long out-of-print 1955 release (released here on CD for the first time as part of the label's Tony Bennett Master Series) has been a perennial favorite among Bennett aficionados, and for good reason. Framed by the intimate, small combos (led on most of the cuts by guitarist Chuck Wayne) he still favors a half-century later, one can hear the forceful, neo-theatrical delivery of the singer's early sides give way here to the supple vocal charms that would make his legend. But that's only half the story: Bennett peruses the American songbook with a connoisseur's nose for distinction, and it's small wonder that he still revisits the exuberance of "Old Devil Moon" and earnest warmth of "Give Me the Simple Life" five decades later. The waxing and waning of Bennett's fortunes over that period only reflect the fickle nature of fashion; this intimate collection firmly underscores the sound artistic instincts beneath his remarkable legacy. --Jerry McCulley

Why is it my favorite? It was recorded more than 20 years before i was even born (1954), so i have no personal connection to it. Well, i love it because it's possibly the smoothest, jazziest album Bennett ever recorded (at least, in his youth). In the studio, he is joined by the Chuck Wayne Septet, providing a sparse and romantic, but jaunty and jazzy background. At this stage in his career, his Bennett's voice still had that smoky quality, but it was soooooo smooth and even, his voice went down like a fine cognac. It's sexy, it's romantic. It's just pure beauty.

This re-release has an annoying "Tinny" echo, especially noticible on the band track, that spoils an otherwise admirable outing. This is also the same problem with the "Basie Swings/Bennett Sings" CD. Hard to believe that modern recording savvy can't take this flaw out of re-issues. You may be a bigger Bennett fan than I (hard to believe) and be willing to wade through this major distraction. If so, have at it. As for me I'll be picking up "The Art of Romance", by Tony, instead, and regret the loss of a listenable "Cloud 7".

Also Recommended: Bennett CDs : "The Good Life", "Playin' With My Friends", "If I Ruled The World, Songs For The Jet Set", and "Astoria: Portrait of the Artist"

I'm a fan of the early Tony Bennett when he was more jazz oriented in his choice of material and musicians. This is an excellent release that features the arranging and solo work of Chuck Wayne, a first class jazz guitarist. I don't think any jazz guitarist backs a musician as well as Wayne did. His harmonic and rhythmic sophistication is worth careful and repeated listening. Anyway, the musicians are tight and Tony's voice is superb. This isn't 21st century sound, but it's good enough, and this is some of Tony's best work.

Great songs from Broadway with a small band I personally like better than lush string arrangements. Guitarist Dennis Budimir is remarkable. This set needs remastering, the tone is poor. If you like T. Bennett, add this to your collection. If you love great jazz guitar it is a bonus.

What can I say. I enjoy any Tony Bennett. Who does not? Sounded great then, sounds even better today. Just wish he'd do more solo albums while he can.
