Tony Bennett Sings for Lovers

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This 15-track torch and ballads collection is drawn mostly from the vaults of Tony Bennett's Improv label, which existed between 1975 and 1977. This was the label he created to get away -- for a while -- from the strict rules of being on a major label. Here he could take the chances he wanted to and not worry about his recording contract being in jeopardy. The players on these sides were a close-knit group of Bennett's associates and friends, and included Ruby Braff, John Giuffrida, Torrie Zito, Chuck Hughes, George Barnes, and Wayne Wright. Four of these cuts -- "My Foolish Heart," "The Touch of Your Lips," "But Beautiful," and "Some Other Time" -- come from the original ...

Four of these cuts -- "My Foolish Heart," "The Touch of Your Lips," "But Beautiful," and "Some Other Time" -- come from the original Tony Bennett/Bill Evans album that has been reissued on the OJC label, and "You Don't Know What Love Is" comes from their reunion outing. Ultimately there are better Bennett collections of love songs, but hey, this is Tony Bennett, a man who always puts his heart and his technical acumen as an interpreter of great songs into everything he does. For the price, few if any will be disappointed, but this would not be a first choice for most Bennett fans.
