Tony Bennett duets with the some of the biggest names in music. My favorite track is "Who Can I Turn To When Nobody Needs Me". Tony sings this song with Queen Latifah. This song is very soothing. It is refreshing to hear a softer side of this rap star. "The Lady Is a Tramp" is an engaging duet with Lady Gaga. She sounds playful here. This song is a delightful surprise. I love the sax playing on this song. "One More For My Baby And One More For The Road" is a song I can see myself listening to with a friend while enjoying a drink in a bar. Amy Winehouse lends her vocal talents on the song "Body And Soul". Her vocals have a pleasant jazzy quality. The piano playing is beautiful on this song. Yesterday I Heard The Rain is a song featuring a singer named Alejandro Sanz. This song is sung partly in Spanish. It is a lovely language to listen to. The horns playing on the song are just superb. "On The Sunny Side Of The Street" featuring Willie Nelson. The guitar playing on this track is smooth and such a treat to listen to. "Stranger In Paradise" is a song featuring Andrea Bocelli. Andrea's voice is very uplifting. "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" is a classic song featuring Aretha Franklin. Her soulful voice matches Tony's voice perfectly on this song. Carrie Underwood sings on the song "It Had To Be You". This song is very pretty and romantic. Carrie can sing anything flawlessly. "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" is a song with Michael Buble. I like the upbeat tone of this song. "Blue Velvet" is a song I can relax to at the end of the day. KD Lang and Tony sound so smooth singing together. The music on this CD is very enjoyable.
