The other side of Tony Bennet...

"When I was growing up, Tony Bennet and many others like him (Sinatra, Dean Martin) were considered passe and most record stores filed them away in the "easy listening" section along side Lawrence Welk and Liberace. Now all of that music once considered so square has suddenly become "hip" while 1970s pop, rock and disco sounds dated.
While Mr. Bennet's smooth and rich voice is perfectly suited to the more syrupy collaborations he made with Percy Faith and Mitch Miller, the other side of Tony Bennet is revealed here in this jazz anthology. Not only does he use his wonderful voice as a fine-tuned jazz instrument, he is also featured with a variety of jazz musicians who also make this CD a "who's who" of the genre.
I was lucky enough to see Mr. Bennet in concert a few years ago. He could tone it down or jazz it up, as he does in this compilation...also a classy guy and a class act."
