Though he scored many Top 20 pop hits during the 1950s and ’60s, it was during the 1970s that Tony Bennett found a new vehicle for his dramatic, raw-silk voice: jazz. As far back as 1954 Bennett (b. 1926) had made a pure jazz album, and he subsequently recorded with jazz giants like Art Blakey, Zoot Sims, and Count Basie. But in the ’70s, Bennett explored quietly adventuresome alternate routes for his impeccable phrasing, teaming with such kindred lyrical spirits as cornetist Ruby Braff, guitarist George Barnes, and Bill Evans. This graceful set features selections from Bennett’s two collaborations with that piano genius, whose chordal settings were as immaculate as they were lovely; there’s also a passel of beauties with the Braff/Barnes quartet, plus three orchestral numbers, empathically arranged by the singer’s longtime colleague Torrie Zito.
