5.0 out of 5 stars **** Double Grammy Winner **** February 12, 2012
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars This duets dvd grows on ya March 2, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You can tell it is a good program when you see it and like it, then like it better each time. Just like the first Duets, this dvd really shows the inner soul of the performers. I keep thinking I have not even seen this performer before, so fresh is it each time. Show stoppers are Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, and Aretha Franklin...their duet had them gutwrenching and producing tears. You can see this samples on You Tube. Duets I ... also love it and play they both a lot. Mom in nursing home really pays attention to this program...

Looks like the best quality ever. Picture was too good and audio was excellent. Quite a collection of personas, hits and what a job done so naturally by Tony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vale la pena! April 5, 2014
Format:DVD
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!

Cannot say enough good things about this video. Well thought out and produced. The idea his son had of going to other singers to record the duets was a stroke of genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching
Worth having. Lots of current day artist duets. Amy Winehouse does one with him not too long before her death so kind of sad but nice they had a opportunity to duet together.
