Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Returning to the recording studio one year after their first momentous meeting, pianist Bill Evans and singer Tony Bennett delivered another tour de force. Fans of the Tony Bennett and Bill Evans Album will also delight in Together Again, which similarly finds the two master stylists performing standards and favorite songs. Displaying the sublime balance that always marked their get-togethers, Bennett and Evans offer splendid renditions of such durable fare as “Who Can I Turn To?,” “You’re Nearer,” “You Must Believe in Spring,” and “Make Somebody Happy.” The two collaborators are in polished form, each keeping the other in mind at all times, their sensitivity bringing a special glow to each tune. Evans also exhibits his inimitable abilities as a solo pianist on “The Bad and the Beautiful.” Evans and Bennett were a rare team; a superb recording such as this makes us mourn the loss of the pianist all over again.
All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Tony Bennett's second, and final, meeting with Bill Evans is a memorable session for several reasons. Bennett is very relaxed and inspired by Evans' imaginative yet reserved accompaniment, which allows the spotlight to stay focused on the singer. The program is a wide-ranging mix of standards "You Don't Know What Love Is" and "Dream Dancing" and classic jazz compositions including Evans' bittersweet "The Two Lonely People," and Thad Jones' moving "A Child is Born". The two veterans blend so well, that it sounds as if getting together in the studio was a regular occurrence. Evans performs the subtle ballad "The Bad and the Beautiful" as a solo, the only song which Bennett sits out. [The 2003 reissue by Concord Jazz adds six previously unissued alternate takes; though all of them are just a shade less polished than the versions initially released, each of these tracks is well worth hearing.]
