Product Description

Tony Bennett ~ A Wonderful World

Amazon.ca

Never mind the project's odd couple, "He's got a girlfriend; so does she" marketing shuck. This is a musical love affair in all its splendor. Produced by the seemingly chameleonic producer T-Bone Burnett (who previously revived traditional bluegrass with spectacular success on O Brother, Where Art Thou?), the septuagenarian legend and his unlikely contemporary foil affectionately court a dozen songs from the Louis Armstrong repertoire with the warmth and natural grace that have been a deceptively effortless Bennett trademark for 50-plus years. The pair kick proceedings off with a playful, irony-free "Exactly Like You," then perform a tender vocal waltz across both the ages and the masterful, sympathetic orchestrations of the late Peter Matz, one of Bennett's longtime collaborators. But it's on the more melancholy performances, like "If We Never Meet Again," "I'm Confessin'," and the Armstrong perennials "Wonderful World" and "Lucky Old Sun," that the pair tap into something akin to timeless musical telepathy. Her own talents hardly in need of burnishing, lang invests the project with some gratifying new smokiness and is rewarded with a postgraduate course in saloon singing for the ages. It's an album that begs the best kind of question: When do we get an encore? --Jerry McCulley

I thought albums like this one would not be made anymore!
This is definately the best album Tony Bennett has ever made. k.d. lang is a more than equal partner for his singing talent, as her smooth and subtle renditions of popular classics all related to Louis Armstrong adds brilliance to hís still surprisingly dynamic voice.
All the songs are outstanding and T-Bone-Burnett's production underlines that. k.d. lang amazes me, she is even better than Tony. The warmth and the love both of these artists have for their material and for each other is obvious and can be heard in every track.
Not all of the tracks ae duetts - there are also solo songs on the CD. So there's no getting bored with this album. I am pleasantly siurprised. This is too good to be true.

kd Lang can sing me the phone book and Tony can croon his way though the yellow pages....and both come out top of the charts. This duet of just these two is a perfect combo for my liking. Tony's smooth free-flowing unique style mingled with kd's powerful yet controlled vocals gives me goosebumps. Their version of What a Wonderful World is now a new classic. No disappointments here if you love these two artists.

There seems to be good chemistry between k. d. lang and Tony Bennett which is reflected in the quality of their duets. The selection of songs also works well for both singers, neither forcing either to reach beyond his or her comfort zone. It's a great disc if you like either performer.

This album is the natural culmination of the Tony Bennett-k.d. lang pairing that we first heard back on Tony's "MTV Unplugged" album. On that cd, Tony introduced k.d. by calling her one of the greatest girl singers; on this cd, she proves him absolutely right.
She is, quite simply, sublime. Listen to her rendition of "Lucky Old Sun" and you won't need to hear any superlatives from me to understand. k.d. is the best female voice around, and a pairing with the best male voice still around after fifty years is simply heaven.
Their voices are perfect together, and the unobtrusive jazz arrangements are the ideal showcase for these two. I've always been in love with Tony Bennett (in fact, what can I say in this review except that he is wonderful as usual?), but it wasn't until this album that I fell in love with the artistry of k.d. lang as well.
It was once said of Fred Astaire that he reminded people that the world was good. The same can be said for these two.

Louis Armstrong was the "Ambassador of American Music", gave so much of himself and never had a mean bone in his body. Well, I can say the same about Mr. Tony Bennett and K.D. Lang, who give life again to the tunes that we all remember with smiles upon our faces. Armstrong really brought popular music to the forefront, in fact he invented so many genres that they number like the stars in the sky. His close friend Bing Crosby once said "Satchmo really started the whole ball rolling with his solo performances from the very beginning". We will never know how much of an influence Armstrong was to the music we now call Easy Listening, Jazz, Blues, R & B(Soul) and Rock. The evolution of his style never wavered, his trumpet playing and vocals are unmistakable. Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong duets remain classic standards, are as popular today as they were when recorded.
Tony and K.D. rediscover the songs the whole world fell in love with. Their smooth gentle style that is instantly recognizable takes each tune to another level. Today, the songs inclusive in this album remain among the most beloved of our time. With new pure melodic arrangements by one of the top arrangers in the business Pete Matz, sets the stage for a lineup in a collectors dream. Many would read this album as a soundtrack for the "Jazz Generation", but it's more than that. Listen as both singers serve up gold with their timeless sound. Take for instance "EXACTLY LIKE YOU", Tony starts off with a happy beat that sends you into another stratosphere, wonderful addition from the great tenor saxophone of Scott Hamilton. K.D. takes a chorus with Tony ending the song with "yes dear", nice touch.

The dueting of male and female singing stars has a long and illustrious history. And now Bennett and lang have taken their turn at it, and the outcome is wonderful. Bennett, who has been riding a revival for the past decade still has his smooth delivery of his music crossing romance, joy and intimacy together in one package. And lang continues to spread her versatility into the crooner arena like she had begun with her last couple of albums. Together they sound as if they had been performing forever together.
What started as a single song on Bennett's Unplugged performance CD has grown to a full album. And it shows the potential that was exhibited by the two with "Moonglow." Here they continue their give and take singing as if just to each other, with the listener being able to overhear. The comfort and respect that they have for each other is evident, and as a result the album is a light journey on a musical cloud. Songs such as "Dream a Little Dream of Me" glide across their combined voices and with a musical give and take become a conversation, rather than a concert or performance. Bennett and lang have produced an album that is just a joy to listen to, and I hope this is the first of many collaborations to come.
