When Tony Bennett recorded with Bill Evans, his career was at its nadir. He had lost his contract with Columbia and couldn't find work. Evans was of course still considered a Jazz genius, but 1973 wasn't a good time even for jazz geniuses. Why they ended up in the studio together is a mystery, but the outcome is pure magic.

Bennett was taking a huge chance. There was no orchestra to hide behind, and no pop arrangement to lean on - just the extremely musical but complex Evans playing as he sang. He could have been exposed as just another pop singer, and the chemistry with Evans, who rarely ever accompanied anyone, could have been horrible. But he pulls it off with aplomb!

There is so much richness in the whole album. For example, in "Young and Foolish", Evans forshadows melodic lines that Bennett will be singing as he plays beneath Bennett. The lushness of Bennett's voice is the perfect foil to Evans' harmonic intensity.

The irony is that Bennett, who had never been known as a jazz singer before, becomes known as one, probably on the basis of this album alone; yet, he didn't get back into the studio again for years. And of course for Evans, this album is yet further example of his genius. This is a classic.

I cannot think of a strong enough way to describe how important
and eternal this album is, and I'm sure many others have given great
reviews of this and the original CD issues of it.
This new version sounds perfect, and has wonderful alternate takes,
including a version of "Young And Foolish" which includes the opening
verse (not on the original released take). Also includes new liner notes and additional photos.

I was working in a Santa Monica restaurant in 1995 where Ross Tompkins played piano a couple of nights a week. He turned me on to this magical album. Every time I listen to it, it touches a different part of my heart. The aching simplicity of "Some Other Time" and the melodic complexities of "Young and Foolish" never let me down.

The day Frank Sinatra died, I was walking down the street in Monterey, California, when I was asked by a TV news crew what I thought of Frank Sinatra. Without blinking, I said that I thought he was an overrated singer, and that Tony Bennett was the man. They then shoved the microphone in front of one of my traveling companions, a charming woman who gushed out, "Old Blue Eyes!" You can probably guess which of us actually appeared on the news that night.

But yes, Tony is the man, and Bill Evans is certainly a worthy musical partner. Apart from an occasional thump coming through the subwoofer, the sound is clean and clear.

In the same way as I never expected the Johnny Hartmann/John Coltrane album to work, neither did I expect this too. Of course I was wrong in both cases.

Tony Bennett has often been thought of as a sub-Sinatra singer, who was a middle road singer without Sinatra gifts. Well on this album and I'm sure on many others he shows the true nature of his talents. A gifted song interpretor who here with Bill Evans at the Piano produces a marvellous performance. Evans of course makes his own unique contribution to the recording. The most important modern Jazz Pianist of the 50's and 60's, here gets a chance to show is skills as an accompanist, as well as playing some lovely solos. This also gives you the chance to hear a lovely version of Bill Evans most famous composition 'Waltz for Debby'.

The recording is a duet, so there is no bass and drums, which only highlights the great talents of these two artists. The fact that they work together so well is a tribute to them, and more importantly it gives die-hard Jazz fans a chance to appreciate a vastly under-rated singer and easy-listening fans a chance to understand why Bill Evans is rated so highly.

this is the first Tony Bennet CD I own, and I belive is worth having among my collection. I'm a big fan of Bill Evans and that is what attracted me from this CD. He plays exquisitely. Add the talent of legend Bennet and you have truly a masterpiece.

This is simply a wonderful piece of innovative, interpretative, interactive vocal and piano jazz by two legends of their domain. No wonder, then, that I just don't want it to stop (and neither did they, as they came back later with Together Again). Tony Bennett's voice is spot on in this recording, and it sounds like he's just hanging out at Bill's, entertaining the neighbors: completely at ease and full of confidence that no one else in the room can sing like he can. Bill sounds like he always sounds: positively aware that he is defining a jazz sound that would be imitated and emulated for decades to come. The song selection is a little dreary, but, when in a melancholy mood, this music really hits the spot. Bill and Tony do try to keep from dragging you into the pity pit with "When in Rome", which is downright funny at times, and the surprisingly up "Waltz for Debby", which at least holds out hope for whoever is listening to the song as they watch Debby grow up and out of their lives. Tony's pleading and resonant acceptance of disappointment in "Some Other Time" is depressingly touching, especially his downward glissando when he sings, "Oh well..." and as with Jazz, he doesn't miss a note through any of the takes and alternates. (That recording also contains some interesting notes about the occasion of Tony and Bill first working together on this CD.) The liner notes are detailed and pertinent, and the alternate takes/bonus tracks give some insight into the approach these two took to this production. All in all, this is a highly listenable work which sets the bar for jazz collaborations so high your nose will bleed if you succeed in reaching it. Great!
