Tony Bennett: Isn’t it Romantic

A fine sampling of romance-themed mid-70s sides

Tony Bennett has sustained his vocal artistry for more than sixty years. He’s gone in and out of commercial favor several times, but the singularity of his voice, musicality and taste have repeatedly lured new generations to his work. His vocal talent measures up to that of Sinatra, but his feel for blue jazz notes adds a unique touch to every recording. This set collects recordings from four mid-70s albums (Sings the Rodgers & Hart Songbook, Life is Beautiful, The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album and Together Again), showcasing Bennett in duets with Bill Evans’ piano, as well as trio, quartet and orchestral settings. The songbook favors American classics from the pens of Rodgers & Hart, Mercer & Mancini, Cole Porter and others, all of which Bennett sings with inimitable ease and class.
