The Concord Music Group released The Complete Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Recordings this week via Fantasy Records.
The sublime 2-CD collection spotlights the iconic song stylist Tony Bennett dueting with legendary jazz pianist Bill Evans from their two albums. Disc 1 combines the originally issued recordings, The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album and Together Again, with two bonus tracks, including a superb version of Cole Porter’s "Dream Dancing"; disc 2 features alternate takes from both sessions.
With the success of 1975’s The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album, featuring the pair performing standards, a solid partnership was established. They returned for Together Again the following year, continuing with moving renditions of "The Bad And The Beautiful" and "Lucky To Be Me."
Nick Phillips produced the remastered compilation with new liner notes by Will Friedwald.
