Notes: The evergreen singer and definition of a class act Tony Bennett performs 15 songs by some of America's best-known tunesmiths, including Cole Porter's "Anything Goes," Fats Waller's "Ain't Misbehavin'," and George and Ira Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away From Me," in this continuation of Bennett's long-running tradition of recording classic 20th-century pop material. He's also joined by the Canadian singer K.D. Lang on a sumptuous version of the big band standard "Moonglow."
One of the finest voices of 20th century American pop, Tony Bennett began his career in the '50s, under the watchful eye of producer Mitch Miller, recording huge hits such as "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," and "Because of You." In 1958, his album BASIE SWINGS-BENNETT SINGS was a precursor to later jazz-based work. That same year, "Firefly" was Bennett's last US Top 40 entry until 1962, when he made a major comeback with the Grammy-winning "I Left My Heart In San Francisco." In '93 and '94 he was awarded Grammys for his albums PERFECTLY FRANK and STEPPIN' OUT.
