Customer Review

I have always liked much of Tony Bennett's music, but not all of it--some is a bit more jazzy and swingy than I usually like for evening listening. But this album particularly got to me and I have loved it! For one thing, many of the songs take me back in my mind to a time I remember with smiles and some melancholy, too. (The Shadow of Your Smile, Gentle Rain, Who Can I Turn To, Mood Indigo) I think his version of "For Once In My Life" is tremendous, and "How Do You Keep the Music Playing" is very, very evocative of all kinds of deep emotion. I even like a couple of the more upbeat ones, like, "Until I Met You".

As for the packaging, I download all the music immediately and give away the CDs in paper slip covers, so jewel boxes are a nuisance to me. Even if I save the CDs I keep them in a binder. But, I do like a booklet of notes. Not just credits, actual information about the music. I can understand why others would prefer the more traditional packaging and agree that there probably is more of a money incentive than eco-incentive for the manufacturers!

Overall though, whether bought as an album or in MP3 downloads of selected songs, you'll be reminded of why Tony Bennett is a legend--and how he can touch the heart!
