Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Tony Bennett (vocals); Bill Evans (piano).
  • Recorded at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California from June 10-13, 1975. Originally released on Fantasy (9489).
  • Digitally remastered by Alan Yoshida using XRCD (Extended Resolution Compact Disc) technology (Ocean Way/JVC Mastering).
  • In 1975, Tony Bennett was not known for small-scale, cabaret-style sonic settings. Nor was jazz innovator Bill Evans known for working with "pop" singers. As this landmark collaboration (so satisfying it prompted a successor) proved, the pair were eminently compatible. Both possessed an unparalleled sensitivity and an ability to scale dynamic extremes from subtlety to bravura. Bennett sings with unprecedented delicacy and intimacy over Evans's technicolor arrangements. The latter's piano textures are complex, elegant and endlessly shifting as they accompany Bennett's tender ministrations on a program of mostly standards. So definitive is the singer's work here that Bennett neophytes could safely begin their exploration with this album.
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (9/90) - 3 Stars - Good - "..Evans' only stint I've heard him accompanying a singer...Evans is subdued but firmly pulling the beat, soloing briefly and winningly."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The combination of Bennett's majestic croon with Evans' lush, romantic piano accompaniment results in a feast for the ears."
