Double Grammy winner - Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for "Duets II" & Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Body and Soul" with Amy Winehouse. (I believe this was also the last song Amy Winehouse recorded.) Nobody mailed it in for these performances. Tony flew around the world to record with each artist individually at their studios. They all have so much respect for Tony, and their efforts really come out in each of their recordings. If you love the old standards, you can't miss this. I am so used to hearing these songs done by Sinatra. These are done so well, and tastefully. I can't believe anyone will be disappointed. It played once last month on PBS, I was lucky enough to catch and record it. I've been raving about it ever since. Glad the Grammy voter's agreed with me. It runs about an hour and a half and is well worth it.

All the best fresh names in the industry to sing with and the uncanny talent for picking the right song to sing with each one is amazing! I loved loved loved this Great performances DVD as it taped not only the official music videos of each of the duet's recording session but great interviews and behind the scenes in the making of the album. I couldn't believe it was lady Gaga singing the classic The Lady is a Tramp. Queen Latifa has that beautiful smooth jazz/ big band, Natalie Cole sound that I wish she would sing more often. Her albums are few and far between these days. John Mayer,Michael Buble and Josh Groban! kd Lang and Diana Krall the list of my favorite singers goes on! The best part is how well Tony Bennett still sings with all of them and his Jazz ensemble at the age of 85.

My Mom is 97 and I sit her up with dinner in front of the TV and she enjoys "dinner theater" with Tony. It's a highlight for her. I can't begin to count the number of times she has watched it.

The guest artists are so varied that you wonder how they will work together. The brief glimpse of the personalities of these artists give you a better appreciation of them as people as well as performers. Bennett shows remarkable ability and range for his age.

Woke-up early and put on PBS TV and watched a replay of Tony Bennett's Duet 2, and now after seeing it, I am just about to place my order for the DVD on Amazon. This was recorded in 2011 for Tony's 85th birthday. He is amazing. His voice has aged like a fine wine, it just get's better and better. His energy and his love of fine music is so evident as he performs with today's Pop singers in this outstanding DVD. The respect and love for him just radiates from each performer he duets with and is than redirected back to them by Tony. Really a joy to see.
I am a fanatic jazz fan and catch the scene at many of New York's jazz clubs and really can't take to today's unmemorable music, but I have gained a new respect for many of the Pop performers featured in these Duets with Tony. Their performance's of the beautiful standard's selected here, really shows their true talent when they are given lyrics to perform that have true meaning, and their give and take with Tony display's a side of their personality that is a delight to see. Now if some of these performers recognize that there really is a market for the great standards and JAZZ, maybe they can convince today's producers and broadcaster's that their is an audience for this music after all and than start to introduce jazz to today's listeners so they can get to actually develop a taste for it and once exposed to it, get to like and appreciate this great American music before it disappears from the scene all-together. Tony is giving this music a new life and I don't know where and when it will ever get this kind of exposure again after he stops performing. Keep on trucking Tony, you are great music's last chance to reach today's younger music fans.
LONG LIVE TONY BENNETT!

Aside from the obvious, which is that Tony Bennett continues to be an AMAZING musical force, I really enjoyed the live performances that were done with each duet partner. My favorite performance on this DVD was Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga performing "The Lady is a Tramp." I'm a musician, also, and I enjoyed watching how each of the duets was prepared and performed. You can learn a lot from watching other musicians. What I'd love to see Mr. Bennett do next is perform with various pianists. Since changing pianists changes how a singer performs, Mr. Bennett singing with Diana Krall is very different than singing with Chick Corea or Herbie Hancock or Oscar Peterson or Lee Musiker or George Shearing . . . . . . . now, there's an idea for a new project that would ALSO be terrific!
