Anthony Dominick Benedetto, better known to his fans as Tony Bennett, has been on top of the music world for more than 60 years and, both back in the day and today, he still is reported as the most popular singer across all generations.
Just about every song he recorded in the 50 hit the top ten of the pop charts without fail. He was a favorite of teenagers, their parents, and their grandparents.
Mr. Bennett reinvented himself in the 60s when he successfully launched a comeback, appealing mostly to adult music fans who were kids when he enjoyed sharing the top of the charts in the 50s with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.
In the 80s, he was once again discovered, or re-discovered, by the younger generation who weren’t even born when his music first enjoyed it’s popularity.
Once again Tony Bennett has found the magic with his ‘Duets’ CDs. Duets – An American Classic, includes some of the greatest popular songs sung with the super rock and country stars of the 80s and 90s.
Duet II brings more of the tones and tunes from the classics like “Body and Soul” sung with the late superstar Amy Winehouse, “Speak Low” with Norah Jones, to the pop music of the 50s like “Stranger in Paradise” with Andrea Bocelli.
Whatever Tony Bennett does promises to be of value to those who collect the music that goes through the ages without a dent in the way it is received. Duets II is now available iTunes and wherever fine music is sold.
