5.0 out of 5 stars This is truly the essence of a great singer, April 27, 2005
By 
This review is from: The Essential Tony Bennett (Rm) (2CD) (Audio CD)
My musical tastes range from old standards to Steve Miller Band, The Moody Blues, Alan Parsons Project, and Blue Oyster Cult. Tony Bennet is one of my perrenial favorites, and when I listened to this remastered album I really understood why. Firstly, Tony is happy and loves to sing. He has a fine voice, has great backing musicians, and all his songs are carefully arranged. You may grumble about some aspects of his phrasing, tempo, or delivery, but it all fits together just right - maybe due to Mitch Miller havign produced his early works. What I noticed for the first time was the driving power of many of his songs - like Grace Slick's "White Rabbit", you better hold on to your seat because Tony is going to knock you over. But when you get up you always feel better - his happiness and love of music is contagious. My personal favorite is "Firely" - short, full of energy, and perfectly packaged.
